Default Ford Ikon Starting problem

I have an Ikon 1.3 which is hardly used twice a week, I went out of town for some time and now the car is not starting, earlier this used to happen bcos of battery going down and on a push start it would become ok.
Now the battery feels like it's ok, but there is a weird loud squeaking noise coming and it does not start, I dont wanna go to metro ford and cauvery ford will charge me a bomb to come down and do this as I am in the other ned of town on Old Madras Road, so any mobile mechs people know about ?? I need to fix this asap.

IMO - since it makes a squeaking sound, i think its the starter motor. tap on it with a screw driver (the covered side). it should do the trick. once it starts, replace / repair the starter motor. hope this helps. take care.
