After my car went completely dead, I replaced the battery and now when I attempt to crank the car, the dash lights flicker and it doesn't turn over or make any sound. What could be the problem now?

Pull the battery cables back off clean the battery post and cables reconnect it to make sure there is a good connection. If it still has a issue with that more than likely it is either the ignition switch or the ECU went bad.

Why won't my truck start?

Are you pulling the arm all the way back up. If not, the ignition is still on and you could be draining the battery. also check the alternator, they can short out on the inside. The solenoid is on the right fender well, do you have the single wire on the correct post

Try disconnecting the battery, replacing the fuses you removed, turn the ignition to the run position, and reconnecting the battery. Many times this will turn the alarm off.

My 99 Grand Am GT will not crank. Was running

Lock cyl not the problem. The true switch is at the base if the steering column on its top side. A rod actuates it when you turn the key. Sometimes after being pushed on by the rod so many times, the switch moves out of the rods reach, travel. and ,well you know the rest. So, to correct, simply find the switch, loosen the screws, move the switch up the column as far as the screws permit, then tighten down the screws(bolts)_ and give it a whirl. Ned

1992 Ford F-150 Ignition lock switch

Do you have a tilt wheel? If so you're only half the way there. The upper actuator is broken. And you got to get into the column further. As for the trick to get the cylinder in. Don't matter if you got a tilt or fixed wheel. Go to the top side of the column. About 2/3 the way down it you'll find the Ign Switch. A rod will be coming out of the top going towards the wheel area. Push it into the switch till the inst panel lights come on. That means that the Ign switch is in the 'ON' sopition. IE all the dash panel lights come on. There is a key on the tumbler that matches to a key in the ign gear. Than just incert the tumbler into the gear and turn it to lock it in.
If you got a non-tilt wheel then it sounds like the bottom of the tumbler is broken off and is still in the gear. If so do the same as above with the Ign Switch. That will align the key so you can take the broken part out and put the new Ign tumbler in.
