Start up issues.

Hi everyone, so I have this issue with my 05 V6. Everytime I go to start it it makes this awful metal shanking sound and none of the gauges are lite up until about 3 seconds then everything turns on. And my factory radio is off then comes on and has reset itself. Any ideas anyone?

I turn the ignition and the car cranks over. Then when it is running about 3 sec later the instrument panel lights come on. Then another maybe 20 sec later the radio comes on and it has reset itself. Also it seems like my headlights kinda dim constantly while the car is running.

I got my car @ an auction so I don't know a whole lot about my car.

Just because you put a new alternator in doesn't mean you didn't get a bad one. With your car running, put a voltmeter (or a multimeter set to volts) on your battery terminals to see what voltage your getting. A cars battery should be charging at 13.5-13.8 volts. The dimming headlights makes it sound like your having an alternator/charging issue.

That or you have whats known as a "phantom draw". Something may be draining too much power while your car is sitting overnight and it's wearing the battery down to the point that it can just start the car.

How long do you have to crank before the car starts?

For about 5-6 seconds. And it also makes this rubbing metal sound every once in a while when I start it.

Sounds like you may have a starter problem(possible internal short in it). Have it checked/tested by a professional.
