Turn the key and it makes a fast clicking noise. The engine does not turn over. The battery is fully charged. Is this a bad starter? The starter has been making a screeching sound recently. Has it finally failed? I'll remove the starter and bring it to a local shop for inspection.

I removed the starter and had it rebuilt. The shop said it was in bad shape. Re-installed the rebuilt starter but still had the same no start problem. Jumped it with another car and it started right up. Turns out the battery was bad even though a multimeter said it was 12V and a charger said it was fully charged. Got a new battery and it stated right up. So not I have a new battery and a new starter and its starting just fine.

Moral of the story: If you battery is more than 6 years old just get a new one already :)
