Hers: Makes a banging noise when it’s trying to start.

Mine: No, will not turn at all.

Buddy, you’re going to have to get specific. As far as the older car, make sure your cables attached to the batteries are not green. The key issue on the other is a brake pedal vs tranny position vs steering column.

Is that banging sound like a misfire and does it give a little smoke and bad smell out the exhaust? It may be that it has a rubber timing belt that may have broken or slipped a number of notches - crank turns the pistons, but the cam doesn’t cycle the valves or has the valve timing out of whack.
