I have a 2000 mitsubishi galant we switched the key ignition and whole steering wheel column and the car wont start,but will turn over, what do we need to do?

If the "new" steering column was from the same year and model car, then the problem may be that the electrical connectors are not making good contact. Disconnect the connectors and check to see if each end is clean and that no pins are bent or broken, If they check OK, then firmly re-connect them. Try to start the car. If the car still will not crank/run check the ignition fuse (maybe do this this as 1st step).
If the "new" column is from a different year or model, then the connectors may fit together, but the wiring may be different. If so proper contact will not be made through the connection.

My ford escape wont start no bells no whistles but battery is strong only the air bvag light on the dash comes on

Turning the key to on, no warning lights or dash gauges come on? That sounds like the ignition switch is not working, or power is not getting to the switch. Power for the switch would likely come from a maxi fuse under the hood. So check all your fuses as a start. If fuses are good, one will have to check the ignition switch for power in and power out, when key is turned to on. Use a test light, pull the ignition switch electrical connector apart. On the harness side of the connector, probe all the terminals in the connector. One wire should be the hot wire to the switch-hot at all times-just waiting for the switch to send power out to make things work. If you have a hot wire there, plug connector together, turn key to on, and backprobe the electrical connector, looking for power out on the run wire. The start wire (going to the starter solenoid) will have power when key is held in start. Too many wires? Confused? Keep probing-all you looking for is power in on one wire, and power out on one or maybe two wires with key on. If no power out, the switch must be bad. If no power in, the electrical distribution system will have to be checked-back to the power distribution center under the hood where the maxi fuses are.
Post back if not clear, or if you need more help. Always appreciate a reply. Good luck.

Mouse chewed wires, fixed,then turn key slowly it would start, some wires hanging below dash, van cleaned, vacummed, wires bumped, now turn key and no crank.

Seems likely that a wire or connector is loose or broken or corroded, or a fuse has blown (or possibly several). Could also be a faulty clutch interlock switch or powertrain control module or gear position switch or starter relay or keyswitch or starter solenoid/motor.

Use information from service manuals, on-line forums, circuit diagrams etc. to help you identify what wires and components to check, it will usually be a lot quicker and easier than randomly checking every circuit. Search for things like "1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager starter relay" and "1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager fuses" and "1999 plymouth grand voyager repair manual pdf".

If you have a test light or meter you can check for power into and out of the fuses, relays, keyswitch, etc. Follow the faulty circuit through to see where the power stops. If you're not sure how to do this find someone who does and ask them to help you. Concentrate on the circuit you are trying to fix (e.g. starter circuit). Use the wiring diagram for your exact model. If the correct wire colours are marked it can help a lot with identifying the wires you want to check.
Note that wires can sometimes change colours when they go through a connector.

Or just try the following:

If you can, find the relay that clicks when the key is turned. Relays can be unplugged so you can unplug them one at a time to see if clicking stops. Identify what the relay does
Check particularly if the starter relay (in relay box near battery?) clicks when the key is turned to start. If it does then the fault is after that (in the relay contacts or the starter solenoid/motor or the connecting wire).

**** Disconnect the battery earth (-) while fixing wires **** to avoid shorts.

Check for blown fuses, particularly the starter fuse (under the dash). Check for loose or corroded fuse connections.There are also some bigger fuses and some relays near the battery that should be checked.
Note: If a fuse has blown it is quite likely that there is a reason, e.g. something may have shorted out when bumped. Fuses rarely blow for no reason. If there is an exposed wire that hasn't been found, it's worth finding before it touches anything when you least need it.
What is a small problem at this stage could potentially turn into a much more expensive one (sparks, smoke, lots of money).
Don't try a bigger fuse !

Check for broken wires.
A cleanly broken wire should be easy to find.
It's a bit more tricky if a break is hidden inside the chewed insulation. If the wire bends easily at a spot it could be broken inside.
Even trickier if a wire has broken off at a join. If you look carefully enough you can usually see where a wire has broken from.
Don't guess if you can't be sure where a wire goes.
Joining the wrong things together leads to zero fun so be careful.

Mouse wee is highly corrosive and can damage wires /connectors. Unplug and carefully inspect the metal surfaces of the connectors for signs of corrosion, black or burnt appearance, or tarnishing. Clean or repair any damage.
All connections should be clean, tight and well insulated.

Good luck.

The security light on car wont start

You should try a different key if available. If no other key is available, you can try cleaning the chip embedded in the key


with a pencil eraser or give both the key and ingition a couple of short blasts of electrical contact cleaner.

Good luck!

Car sometimes wont start. Nothing. No clicking grinding or any power. Then after awhile it will start just fine I've checked battery connections all clean and tight.

If lights come on and no click at all with the starter, then it might be shifter postition lockout, defective ignition connector behind the key assembly or a bad connection at the starter. Many mechanics know to bang on the starter with a metal rod and someone turning the key to the start position. Some battery positive cables (should be red) are multi connector type so check the positive for corrosion at all the connectors.

2006 Jeep Wrangler won't start

First, make sure you can turn the engine by hand. If you can't then the starter can't turn it either. Have someone else turn the key and look for the source of the click...may be a relay. Go over the starting circuit with a volt meter. Check for power at the starter main terminal and then with the key turned to "start" check for power at the trigger terminal on the starter. Check battery voltage and check relay operation.
You have a neutral safety switch on the transmission if its an automatic and a clutch switch if it's a stick. Check them as well. Make sure battery grounding on fender and block are also clean and secure.

1995 nissan pu wont start... everything turns on

check for power to the starter at the starter's connectors while you have someone turn the key. If there is power, change the starter. If not check your ignition switch, (manual trans)clutch pedal switch, and starter fuses/relays. Hopefully this helps
