I had the same problem with my 1991. It turned out to be a key issue. My car, and probably yours, has a safely device that keeps any other key from working. When my chip in my key got worn, my car locked down. I got someone at a car place (NOT THE CADLILLAC dealership - they will rob you!) to by-pass the safety feature. They just had to work on a few wires. I took it to a place that installs car radios - they knew just what to do.
If this is what is wrong with your car, it will sometimes start after sitting awhile, but then other times won't. It's very frustrating!

I have a 92 sentra lights come on but when i turn key nothing happens. Starter good ,relay good, head lights don't dim when you turn key . Car won't turn over at all


If by lights, you mean the dash lights come on, then ignition switch must be getting power. If dash is not working with key on, check the 30 amp fuse link which powers the ignition switch.
If switch is good and starter is good, the start wire from switch goes to, if automatic, to inhibitor relay (the park/neutral function) and then to starter. There is also an inhibitor switch on the shifter or on the transaxle that turns on the inhibitor relay when key is on and shifter in park or neutral. The inhibitor switch is powered by a 10 amp fuse D.
If you have a manual transmission, the start wire from ignition switch goes to the clutch interlock relay and then to the starter. This relay is turned on by the clutch interlock switch on the clutch pedal.
You can check for power on either relay, the inhibitor relay or the clutch interlock relay, with a test light. Pull the relay out, have the key held in start position. Now both relays would have power showing on two terminals where the relay plugs in. If inhibitor relay only has power on one terminal or no power at all, either ignition switch is not sending power or fuse D is out or the inhibitor switch is not working right. If clutch interlock switch does not have power on two terminals either the ignition switch is not sending power or the clutch interlock switch is bad.
If the relay checks are good, check for power on the small wire to starter with key held in start. If you have power there, the starter solenoid must be out.

2007 Dodge Caravan won't start.Batt. is good, all lights work, Turn key, solenoid clicks and stops, all gauge needles slowly move to max., and return to min. No codes displayed.


When you try to start it do the lights dim way low, have you been able to start it with a jump from another vehicle, unfortunately, chances are the starter needs to be replaced. How many miles does it have?

Hi, have a toyota avalon, tried starting the car , it won't start, but then the starter engaged and won't turn off evenwithout the key, disconnected the battery and it stopped , when the batte


It sounds like you have a bad actuator. This is attached to the starter and has a solonoid that pushes the starter motor gears into the engine gear. If the solonoid is faulty this may happen. Also check alignment of the same.

2002 Dodge Intrepid accessory/starter relay problem?


Accessory position is turning key towards he driver. Ignition on is away 1 and start is away2.
  • Turn on your headlights, do they work? If not, chk batt terminals
  • If they do, try to crank the engine noting what the headlights do. If they go out, Chk the batt ground cable. If they dim, your batt needs a charge. If they dim and then come back bright when you back off the starter, the starter is bad.
  • Chk for loose engine to body ground. That would affect the accessories. Good Luck, _Ned_

96 passport batt good starter getting power just


Have you tried bypassing the ignition? Turn the key to the on position and cross the starter terminals with a screwdriver. If it starts then you will need a new ignition or possibly a new ignition module.

New starter good batt. only clicks wont turn over 1995 montero


The Batt does not have a full charge or it is the wrong cranking AMP's for the car... find out if it is the right Batt and also that it is put on a "slow charge" over night or at least 6 hr's
