Indeed it is not yee yee you tought of, Marcio. The musical genre and all.

A case in wich one could use the onomatopoeic sound, could be that of a guy coming to a garage and explaining to the mecanic, in order to get his car fixed, so:

-Man, I don´t know where´s the problem, if it is a dead battery, the starter, maybe a faulty alternator, a sparky plug issue...all I know is that when I try to start him I get a yeeyeeyeeyee sound! (slower than the yeee yeee yee Beatles way)



Yeeyee = trying to start a car with a dead battery.

==================================
Another onomatopoeias I found:
one that reproduces a car starter is:
RRRRRRRRRRRrrrRRrrr

(don´t working, of course ...)

...
and dead battery

GROINK-A F-FITH-H-H t [ Kinda just the sound of one rotation of the eletric motor, but then, the rotor just spin once and stop dead, kinda softly.] Everything you needed in a Monday, when you promised your boss that report would be delivered first thing!
