Question about 2000 Mercury Cougar
Tap on the side of the starter with a pry bar and a hammer while making sure to stay away from the electrical connections. The high pitched noise you are hearing is the starter drive spinning but not engaging. This should help get the car started so you can get it to a repair shop or the parts store.

I have the same problem and called Honda. One of their technicians said its related to transmission fluid and is considered normal, and there's nothing to fix. :(

SOURCE: High pitched squeal in engine
loose fan belt?
Put the car in neutral, set the parking brake, open the hood, get someone to listen/see where the sound is coming from, as you press on the accelerator.

what is anti-theft light doing? It should come on solid for about 2 sec after you turn the key on then turn off. If it is flashing after this then it is not seeing the computer chip in the key and you have a PATS problem.
