Hi Mike

I would start with a jump start. If the battery is weak you may experience this and the starter relay may make a buzzing type of noise. Your battery can have enough voltage to work things that only use volts, but the starter needs amperage to actually crank the engine. Leave the donor car attached to it for 15 minutes, then try to start the car and see if anything has improved. Please try this and let me know.
