Ignition switch for 2003 malibu ls


Ignition switch ? Key an lock cylinder or the electrical part ? The vehicle keeps running or you can't turn key to off ! Different thing's come into play depending on which is your problem ! If vehicle doesn't shut off (keeps running ) You need to know how it works !
An ignition switch isn't the same as back in the old days , it's a low voltage input to the BCM .
Serial Data Power Mode
On vehicles that have several control modules connected by serial data circuits, one module is the Power Mode Master, PMM. On this vehicle the PMM is the BCM. The PMM receives 3 discreet ignition switch signals to differentiate which power mode will be sent over the Class 2 Serial Data circuit.
To determine the correct power mode the PMM uses the following circuits:
?€¢
Ignition 0


?€¢
Ignition 1 voltage


?€¢
Ignition 3 voltage


An you need a professional scan tool to deal with these problems !
Serial Data Messages The modules that depend exclusively on serial data messages for power modes stay in the state dictated by the last valid PMM message until they can check for the engine run flag status on the serial data circuits. If the PMM fails, the modules monitor the serial data circuit for the engine run flag serial data. If the engine run flag serial data is True, indicating that the engine is running, the modules fail-safe to RUN. In this state the modules and their subsystems can support all operator requirements. If the engine run flag serial data is False, indicating that the engine is not running, the modules fail-safe to OFF-AWAKE. In this state the modules are constantly checking for a change status message on the serial data circuits and can respond to both local inputs and serial data inputs from other modules on the vehicle.
Discrete Ignition Signals Those modules that have discrete ignition signal inputs also remain in the state dictated by the last valid PMM message received on the serial data circuits. They then check the state of their discrete ignition input to determine the current valid state. If the discrete ignition input is active, battery positive voltage, the modules will fail-safe to the RUN power mode. If the discrete ignition input is not active, open or 0 voltage, the modules will fail-safe to OFF-AWAKE. In this state the modules are constantly checking for a change status message on the serial data circuits and can respond to both local inputs and serial data inputs from other modules on the vehicle.

I had a locked car light come on in my 2006 chevy malibu, it no longer will drive. doesnt turn off, goes in reverse but when in drive, just revs like the car is in neutral, why?


The lock an car symbol is for the anti-theft system ! By not turning off, do you mean you can't turn the key to the off position or you can turn the key to off but the car won't shut off ?
It sounds like you have a Power Mode Mismatch
The ignition switch is an input to the BCM - body control module an if something happens to the system , the BCM will keep the vehicle in the last known mode Since the operation of the vehicle systems depends on the power mode, there is a fail-safe plan in place should the power mode master (PMM) fail to send a power mode message. The fail-safe plan covers those modules, using exclusively serial data control of power mode, as well as those modules with discrete ignition signal inputs.
You could have an ignition switch problem or something wrong with the BCM .
Discrete Ignition Signals Those modules that have discrete ignition signal inputs, also remain in the state dictated by the last valid PMM message received on the serial data circuits. They then check the state of their discrete ignition input to determine the current valid state. If the discrete ignition input is active, battery positive voltage, the modules will fail-safe to the RUN power mode. If the discrete ignition input is not active, open or 0 volts, the modules will fail-safe to OFF-AWAKE. In this state, the modules are constantly checking for a change status message on the serial data circuits and can respond to both local inputs and serial data inputs from other modules on the vehicle.
This is one you need to take to the dealer because they have a factory scan tool !

I have a 2009 g envoy and when I turn my key it wont do anything.replaced the ignition switch and it has worked fine for about 5 months and now it is doing the same thing sometimes it will start right


On GM vehicles starting back in mid 2000's , maybe even before that. They started using inputs to the body control module from the ignition switch, from there the BCM controls all vehicle systems .
Power Mode Description and Operation
Serial Data Power Mode
On vehicles that have several control modules connected by serial data circuits, one module is the power mode master (PMM). On this vehicle the PMM is the body control module (BCM). The BCM uses 3 signals from the ignition switch. These are the Ignition 0, Ignition 1, and Accessory.
To determine the correct power mode the BCM uses:
?€¢
The state of these signals


?€¢
The sequence of switch closures received by the BCM


?€¢
The status of the engine run flag

The chart indicates the power modes detected and transmitted by the BCM:

Correct Ignition Switch Inputs

Fail-safe Operation
Since the operation of the vehicle systems depends on the power mode, there is a fail-safe plan in place should the body control module (BCM) fail to send a power mode message. The fail-safe plan covers modules with discrete ignition signal inputs as well as those modules using exclusively serial data control of power mode.
Serial Data Messages The modules that depend exclusively on serial data messages for power modes stay in the state dictated by the last valid BCM message until they receive the engine status from the powertrain control module (PCM). If the BCM fails, the modules monitor the serial data circuit for the engine run flag serial data. If the engine run flag serial data is true, indicating that the engine is running, the modules fail-safe to Run. In this state the modules and their subsystems can support all operator requirements. If the engine run flag serial data is false, indicating that the engine is not running, the modules fail-safe to OFF-AWAKE. In this state the modules are constantly checking for a change status message on the serial data circuits and can respond to both local inputs and serial data inputs from other modules on the vehicle.
Discrete Ignition Signals Those modules that have discrete ignition signal inputs also remain in the state dictated by the last valid BCM message received on the serial data circuits. They then check the state of their discrete ignition input to determine the current valid state. If the discrete ignition input is active, B+, the modules will fail-safe to the RUN power mode. If the discrete ignition input is not active, open or 0 voltage, the modules will fail-safe to OFF-AWAKE. In this state the modules are constantly checking for a change status message on the serial data circuits and can respond to both local inputs and serial data inputs from other modules on the vehicle.
You would need a scan tool that can read data from the BCM . What may be the problem is a lose connector , these pin's at connectors are tiny and doesn't take much for one to become lose.

I have a 1997 Tahoe 350 4wd. I just need the wiring diagram for the trailer hitch. The wires are there but there is no connectors. I have also found the orange and blue wire for doing the electric...


please dont ask me iam colour blind ,but to overcome this i use a multimeter or a little light and test for current this way ,going by the so called wiring colours is a disaster for me not only the colour thing but the wireing can change colours owing to different suppliers of looms in manufacture ,they run out of one colour and use another ?? you name it i think i have seen it

How can depressing the clutch engage the starter ?


It sounds like current is feeding into the start wire off the switch. Trace the wire from the clutch switch to the ignition switch connector. Does the wire look good? Examine closely the connector and see if you see a burnt terminal, or some broken plastic in the connector, some way for the start wire to pick up current. If you see nothing wrong, IDK, probably will need a shop to chase the wiring down and find it. I don't know if a bad starter relay (stuck on) could do that, likely not if it only happens when you depress clutch and have clutch switch on.
Good luck.

Wont shut off by the key just changed the motor and had to unhooked battery to shut it down and all dash lights are staying on for a 95 chev pickup truck with a 4.3 motor


you have cross connected a battery feed with an ignition feed. Go back and check to ensure that all the engine harness connectors and any other connections made to the engine are correct.
If you have to, disconnect each connector in turn until you find one that shuts everything down, then recheck the wiring codes etc to enure you have plugged it into the correct connector. It is very easy to reconnect a harness connector into the wrong place so check wiring colour codes etc.

I am looking for wiring diagram for the starter motor for my rolls royce


hi, first thing we need to do is DISCONNECT the BATTERY (NEGATIVE (- sign)) HEAVY LEAD.

the SOLINOID has a HEAVY POSITIVE (+) LEAD this is a BOLT on connection and also (normamlly smaller cable (this cable feeds the car POSITIVE (+)) BOTH BOLT on THE SAME terminal ( ring terminals).

the STARTER MOTOR CONNECTS to the other BOLT ON CONNECTION (SINGLE ring terminal) of the SOLINOID.

the other small wire (s) is the (ignition key position starter motor circuit, the colour RED/WHITE or BLUE/WHITE. this is normally a PUSH-ON connector. if you have a BLACK or BROWN WIRE then this is EARTH (GROUND (-))

testing if this do'nt work. check if BOLT-ON CONNECTIONS are TIGHT by HAND.

the solinoid is a remote HEAVY CONTACT SWITCH and has 2 circuits SWITCHES HEAVY CURRENT up to 700 AMPS. and the CONTOL of the KEY to operate from a small wire. gerry

Car starts has no power until the gas pedal is almost to the floor. In 2nd the tach is at 3500 rpm and won't shift until i let up on the gas. It also hesitates and is using more gas than usuall.


Check the TPS (Throttle position sensor) wire lead and replace the TPS if any signs of damage or failure.

The Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) is used to send input signals to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to indicate the current angle of the throttle blade.

Theory/Operation:
This sensor is a variable resistor that has a 5 volt reference signal applied to it by the PCM. The TPS sends signals back to the PCM in the range of approximately 1 to 4 volts, depending upon the throttle shaft angle. The PCM uses these input voltages to determine the current position of the throttle.
The PCM uses the voltage signals from the TPS and other input sensors to determine the proper air/fuel mixture and ignition timing for certain operating conditions. Some of these operating conditions are: acceleration, deceleration, idle, and wide open throttle.


Typical Readings:
An input voltage of approximately 1 volt indicates a minimum throttle opening, idle, or deceleration condition. An input voltage of approximately 2 volts indicates a cruise or light acceleration condition. An input voltage of approximately 4 volts would indicate a maximum throttle opening or wide open throttle condition.
NOTE: The following procedure tests the TPS only.
  1. The TPS can be tested with an analog voltmeter. The center terminal of the TPS is the output terminal.
  2. With the ignition key in the ON position, check the TPS output voltage at the center terminal wire of the connector. Check this at idle (throttle plate closed), and at wide open throttle (WOT).
    • At idle, TPS output voltage should be approximately one volt. The output voltage should increase gradually as the throttle plate is slowly opened from idle to WOT.
    • At wide open throttle, TPS output should be approximately 4.5 volts.
As always, check the service manual for the proper procedures and specifications for your particular vehicle.

Thank you using Fixya and good luck.

Have problem with 97 dodge ram 5.9L no fire from ignition coil 12 v aparent on 2 wire connector at times depending on where it stops after turning engine over . nothig while its turning over


You may have a short in the wiring going to your ignition coil. If there is a broken wire, it may show current if it vibrates into the right position when the motor is shut off. If I'm correct, the ignition coils should always have current (with the key in the ON possition) with the actual ignition controlled by the crankshaft sensor, and possibly other sensors depending on the vehicles design. If all of your other coils have a 12v current, then I would start looking for a loose connection, or broken wire to that coil.

No Power to Fuel pump


I would check the ground for the fuel pump relay that operates the switch side of the relay.
You should have 2 12v inputs to the relay. When the relay gets 12v input, it closes the relay switch on the heavy current side that sends 12v to the fuel pump.

A relay is needed because you don't want heavy current going through the switch.

Also, most cars only run the fuel pump for 2 seconds when the key is turned on because you don't want the fuel pump running without the car running. If you listen closely at the fuel tank, you should hear the pump run for 2 seconds when you turn the key to "ON"
When the key is turned to "START", the fuel pump should run continuously.
The engine computer tells the fuel pump to shut off if the engine rpms are zero.
So, I would check the switch side of the relay. Power amd ground.
