    Possible bad Ignition cylinder. Does your key have the chip at the top of the key before the rubber area?

    Next time it happens try slightly pulling downwards on the key then trying to start.

Make sure there is no corrosion on the battery cables or the starter, make sure all connections are solid and that should fix it from what it sounds, otherwise i would look at the ignition but thats pretty much all there is in the system that would mess up, good luck let me know if you need anymore help, thanks for feedback =)

97 Chevrolet Lumina. Won't start. Lights, horn, radio all work. Tried jumpstarting. Still nothing. Tapped starter and it started but cuts right off. Noticed Security light flashing. Checked all...


You have a security issue going on. Try turning the key to the on position and leave it on without trying to start the car. Wait about 10 minutes and the light will stop flashing and come one solid. Then try to start the car. Turn the key to the off position. Wait 60 seconds and then turn the key to the on position. See if the light is still flashing. If it is then try the process again. If it isn't flashing and it is on solid then start your car.

Turned the key and the car did not start, car was not firing and no noise from the starter ... then turned the key and the car started ... went out for drive and came home ... turned the key again and...


Hmmm it could be the ignition itself, sometimes the inside parts wear out and do not engage as they should. The next indicatioin that its your ignition is the key will stick in it from time to time. Als, I know this sounds wacky, but when it wont start, put your foot on the brake, put the car in neutral and try to start the car. See if this works also.

My 95 chevy lunina want start cause the security light is flashing on and when i turn the key it want do any thing


Good Evening, this is a common problem with the early gm anti-theft systems. What I need you to do is go out to your car and try to start it. Then when it does not start leave the key forward in the on position for 11-15 minutes until the security light goes off, then shut the car off and start it up (it will start). If it does not try it a couple more times and you will get it running. What that does is it relearns your key again so the security system will recognize the resistor pellet and allow it to start. Hope this helps.

Van took a few tries to start. Then once off nothing worked.


Might be time for a tune up?

Does your car have a anti-theft system that uses a resistor in the key? I have had several instances when I tried to start the my '95 GM auto, runs perfect normally, but nothing. I traced it back to the key. Probably not always put in correctly.

Starter will not turn with ignition key


some are fused and has relay. check fuse and relays. replace with the same type, you could try to interchange the relays if they are of the same type.
