Unfortunately, it's already at the shop so any opportunities for troubleshooting before the shop rate counter starts ticking are lost. Without hearing the sound ur describing, it could be either one of the things mentioned... a discharged battery could def give u this condition in which case its as simple as a charge and out the door. However, if the noise ur describing is the starter spooling up but the engine not turning over then it sounds like ur starter solenoid.

**just reread ur post. "A few times it almost turned over." If that means it almost started but was struggling to get the engine to spin then I'd say it sounds like ur battery. Too bad u couldn't have gotten ur hands on a jumper box or something before having it towed just to make sure it wasn't the battery.
