Battery is dead, battery cables are loose, or your vehicle is not in park all the way. Put it into neutral and try to start it there.

Turns over but wont start no fire to coil packs was running when parked

Do you have a spare ignition key? They send a code to the car to prevent theft. If the key doesn't send the code, it won't start. It has to be a factory style key. If you had a regular key made, it won't work. It has to be the one like come with it. If the factory key is broken, You can get a regular key made, just hold the factory key next to the other key while starting. Key and lock stores sell and program the keys. And can test your keys too.

Cranks but wont start

There is fuel in the tank? When you turn the key in the ON position, you hear the fuel pump running for some seconds and then stops or keep on? Maybe you have a clogged fuel filter, or a bad fuel pressure regulator... please post more details.

1996 isuzu trooper steering wheel won't unlock

Firstly, if your steering wheel will rotate about an inch, while in the locked position, do the following:

1) swing the wheel as far as it goes, then hold it tightly in position (it may want to return back to position, butdon't let it go!)

2) insert key into ignition, and turn key to "ON", not start.

3) see if steering wheel will now release...

Please advise if this works...

If no, then need to go to next step...

Await your response....

Turn the key to start engine and no reponse after sveral trys t starts

Could be ignition switch or the solenoid/starter. When it doesn't work, do the gages, etc come on with the ignition? This will help to determine whether it is the switch or the starter.
BTW, I just had the same issue and it turned out to be the starter.

Ignition key won't turn to start; will turn to accessory

Pressure on the side of the tires from the curb caused the steering wheel lock to not release. Wrestling the steering wheel got the tension off the wheel and allowed the key to turn. Problem solved
