is the grinding you hear from trying to start it or coming from the gear box? test the battery to make sure you have a full charge. if so, then it could be the starter solenoid or even the starter. if it's grinding, i would lean more towards the starter. the solenoid would make more of a clicking sound when it tries to engage the starter. make sure all your wires are connected good. a bad ground could cause the starter not to engage too. try these things and follow up and let us know what happens.

what kind of buggy/engine do you have? unless the belt and clutch are frozen it shouldn't keep the engine from turning over. you could disconnect the belt just to be sure and then try it.
