Due to some recent unfortunate events, both my wife and myself got stranded overnight with our vehicles in the recent blizzard that hit the midwest. One vehicle is a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer, the other is a 1999 Saturn. Since then, the Mountaineer hasn't started after I initially had started it to get it home the next day. The Saturn had the same issue, but I pushed it into the garage and put some heaters out. After 2 days it started up and seemed to be fine. Yesterday, I took the Saturn out and left it in a parking lot for about 8 hours (single digit temps, below zero wind chill), and now it won't start again. Both batteries have proper charge on them (checked with volt-meter). When the ignitions on either vehicles are turned, there is only one singular click. It seems as if the starters are seized up. Any ideas?
