it could be your ignition switch needs replacing or maybe your starter is freezing up?

2013 Hyundai Elanta will not start, turn key , new battery, nothing, all lights n dash work, could it be the alarm system OEM


If you have a second key, try that one. Sometimes 1 key will unlock, 1 key will start. If not it would be the anti theft or security system disabling the ignition module. Which is why it won't even try to turn over.

Start then turn key nothing


I had this same problem for a little bit. Try a new battery. Sometimes battery just strong enough to start and drive for a while, but then when you stop for a while, it may not start. I changed the battery and works great now.

Car wont start. No dash lights come on when I turn the key.


Check your main fuses for power. If none go back to battery cables

Starter will not engage when key is truned


if the starter is spinning but not turning the engine over, you need a new starter. If there is nothing at all, you might check the battery cables from battery to ground and from battery to starter. Sometimes the cables become corroded at their connections. Sometimes the cables themselves become defective and will not conduct. Also have your battery checked.

I turn the key nothing happens? I have new battery, I put in a new starter, all the lights and bells work. The starter has been tested it'"s new. I changed ignition relayy switch still nothing It...


I have a 93 pathfinder SE 4X4 automatic transmission that had full power, new starter and battery. Sometimes it will start and sometimes not. By passed starter relay by adding push button start and it started 6-8 times then nothing. I finally figured out that it was the neutral safety or inhibitor switch on the 4 wheel drive shifter. Just an idea..good luck

I have a 1997 Grand Am 2.4 SE that won't start


Check battery full charge, battery terminals are clean, cables aren't cracked, broken or corroded and alternator first.

Which your having replaced your starter with new already. If you're still getting nothing it sounds like a bad ignition switch.

They wear normally and need to be replaced. But as a helpful hint don't place excess keys or weighty trinkets on your ignition keys.

They wear on the seating of the key in the ignition and often promote failure in the ignition from bearing the dangling weight.
