Hi from uk the switch you mention is called the inhibitor switch which prevents cars engine from being started if in gear but allows starts only if in either neutral or park mode question? do you hear click on key start position? or just nothing? may i suggest you check the starter solenoid which is on starter and has positive cable from starter attached along with a thinner cable? also you will/should see a thin wire also connected to the solenoid on a seperate teminal this is the wire from key start ign switch and when key turned to start energises the starter into operation /turn engine ensure this wire is clean/secure? one other thing to check is the earth/ground lead that runs from chassis/body and connects to engine usually in vicinity of rear of engine? all above is assuming that your battery is ok?? hope this helps?

2002 jaguar , the battery is brand new, so I believe its good, all accesories turn on, radio heat/ac, but the vehicle will not start, wondering if thats alternator, starter or what??


It would not be the alternator since it only works when the engine is running. Could be the starter, the neutral safety switch, or a wiring issue. I am assuming the anti-theft system is functioning.
Someone would need to check for power at the starter to proceed.

How to fixed wont start engine..


test the following and fix it. GOD BLESS you.fe35589e-c7d2-4fa3-a813-99841956a6cb.gif
If nothing happens when you turn the ignition key to the "Start" position, it means that the starter motor doesn't turn over the engine. Most commonly this could be caused by a dead battery;
If the battery checks out OK, but the starter still won't crank, there could be a number of possible reasons. Here are some of them:

The ignition switch could be bad - it's a common problem. An ignition switch is an electrical switch installed at the back of the ignition lock mechanism. If jiggling the key in the ignition helps start the car, the ignition switch should be checked first.
The starter solenoid control wire could have a bad connection.
The starter motor itself or a starter solenoid could be bad.
A neutral safety switch is bad. If a car doesn't start with the transmission in Park, but starts in Neutral, it could be caused by a problem with a neutral safety switch.
.
A problem with vehicle's security system or some other electronic control module (e.g., ECM, BCM) may also prevent the starter from operating.

2002 chevy impala won't start if I jump starter


Is the security light on or flashing ?
The yellow wire goes from the key switch to the neutral safety switch, then to the starter. So bypassing the neutral safety would make the starter crank the engine, but would have nothing to do with the rest of the engine.

My 92 lincoln town car will not start i have replaced the starter, the neutral safety switch and the battery but when i turn key nothing happens but can jump starter and will crank


Yes there is a starter relay in the wiring diagram.
The yellow and lite blue wire goes from the starter solenoid to the relay. There is a yellow wire from the relay to a 30amp fuse. The key switch powers thru the neutral safety switch and then powers the relay on.

What's your problem?starter wont turn engine


Could be electrical or mechanical.
Does the crankshaft turn by hand ?
Have you checked for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch ?

Car wont crank, could it be fuel pump


If the engine will not crank and you know the battery is good, a mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch.
If the security light stays on, you have a problem with the passkey system.
A fuel pump problem will not prevent the engine from cranking.

2002 WRX won't start


Could be lack of current from the battery, corrosion on the terminals, bad ignition switch, bad neutral safety or clutch safety switch, bad solenoid, bad starter brushes, bad starter field, bad engine ground strap, or siezed engine.

For a quick check, turn the headlights on as you try to crank.

If they do not dim, then current never getting to starter field.
If no click as well, then not getting to starter solenoid.

If they dim but come back when you stop, then battery good and either starter or engine is bad.

If they dim and don't come back, then battery is bad.

My buick will not turn over sometimes and the stater is good


A number of items could cause this.

1 Worn shift linkage causing the neutral safety switch to not go into PARK or NEUTRAL.

2 Defective neutral safety switch

3 Cracked wire in the ignition switch, causing the anti theft system to prevent engine from starting

4 One or two bad commutator plates on the starter armature. If the starter stops so that the brushes land on the defective plate, the starter won't work. When it lands on a good one, it will. This requires replacement of the starter.

Long story short, you need a skilled mechanic to diagnosis this.
