Your help would be appreciated - 04 Ford C-max 1.8 petrol, will not start, when first tried it seemed to turn over but not quite start, the second time and a few other times after there is what sounds like an electronic whirring but the engine does not sound as though it is likely to start.
Any ideas

when you turn the key to the first positiondo all the instrumrnt panel lights come on
with the key in that position do any of the electrical items opearate in any way

if you turn the key to the start position does the starter motor operate

Have the battery and / alternator ever been changed that you know of
