First, turn on everything, then hit the horn. It should just 'squeak'. Check the connections at battery and starter. Wash wax enjoy! Frankster016

08 Chevy Cobalt wont start. Battery is good.?


Generally speaking, if the starter was dead it would not jump start.
Sounds like the key switch or the neutral safety switch.
You would need to know if the starter has power when the key is in the start position.

Turn the key and nothing happens


check the neutral safty switch, if this is bad it will not start in park. put it ineutral and see if it starts. if so switch is bad. also the vehicles made lately have a switch in back of brake pedal witch means brake has to be pressed to start car. check safety switch first.

I have a Dodge Neon 2006 which was working fine


you may be right, try a spare key, that will elimanate the key chip, you will need a scan tool to diagnose this problem, also with key in crank position is there power at starter, the scan tool can tell yuo if computer is reading key chip signal and if signal if right and also you can see if starter is receiving start signal, good luck.

2001 lumina turns on-- but doesn't turn over


When that happens again, try moving shifter harder into park, or in to neutral and also try stepping harder on brake pedal & see if it makes any difference.

2005 chevy cobalt key stuck in ingintion, can not get the key out car will not start seems like battery is dead


Place the transmission shifter in neutral and try starting the car. If the car starts that's a good thing. The bad thing, there is a lock pin in the shifter that activates the micro switch to release the ignition key when it's turned to the off position. It's a simple fix, take the center console a part so you can get to the pin to realign it to the micro switch. When you have it apart you'll see what i mean. Once you have it aligned, the key's will release from the ignition switch. Good luck and hope this helps, and take note: make sure you have a set of tools to take the console a part if this happens again when your out of town.

Honda CR-V Will Not Start


Although I haven't heard of it happening so soon, it sounds to me like it's a bad starter. If the car is under warranty, I would recommend the dealer. If not, I would start with the starter, alternator, and then the spark plugs. It's just a little hard to tell without hearing what sounds it IS making.
