Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

 

Where does the noise and vibration seem to come from?

 

 

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Under the hood, but it is hard to locate. I turned the car odd for 5 minutes, and it would not re-start.

Is it sort of a rapid loud clicking noise that comes from under the hood the hold time you hold the key in the crank position?

Do you have a digital voltmeter we could use to do some testing?

The first thing you'll want to do is try jump starting it if possible. It sounds like the noise is coming from the starter, this noise is a characteristic of very low battery voltage at the starter.

 

If a jump start works then you'll need to have the battery load tested, which most parts stores will do for free.

 

Jump starting isn't always reliable, and if it doesn't work then you'll need to remove the battery and have it load tested and then replaced if necessary, or some electrical testing would need to be done to determine it's condition, or to determine what is wrong if the battery does test ok.
