    Sounds like a jammed starter motor, especially common on cars left standing for a long time

    That's what I thought but I have changed starter motor over with a new one and tested before it went in but still the same, it's a 3.2 v6 if that makes a difference

    You sure its not the battery? sounds like the same symptons i had with mine and the battery was shorted out and not holding a charge, also have you checked the alternator as that could be a cause and not charging the battery.
