Do you have a Chip in the Key? if so that Could be the Problem,Ya see the chip is a resistor and if it looses its ELECTRONIC VALUE in its Case Resistance it wont start to test this Turn the Key in the ON posission then do the Screwdriver thing If it Starts Key is Good and Most Likely the Ignition (SWITCH) is Bad <<ELECTRICAL Side NOY LOCKEST SIDE For More Info Recontact Me

SOURCE: my car won't start I don't hear it crank

Get a test light, and see if your starter has battery power, (big wire/stud) on starter. itll light up if you do. then there should be a little wire. thats your igntion switch wire. have someone start your car while you testing the little wire. if the light comes on. then your starter is probably bad, even if its new they still can be bad. If it doesnt light up then, you need to locate the starter relay in engine compartment,I should have one. test to see if it clicking when you try to start it. youll feel it. If not pull it out and test to see if you have power. do the same test with someone starting it and see if you light comes on. If it comes on then replace the relay. and you could try and see if your ignition fuse is ok. I hope this gets you started. if not right back were your stuck at.

SOURCE: My 1999 nissan altima won't start, no crank,not

If you look under the hood, there is a starter relay that might be the problem - but more common than that, - Do you have an alarm system of anykind? If so, It sounds alot like that is the problem, and they are notorious for causing "no start" problems as such - Unfortunatey, the wiring for these (even to just remove one) can be rather involved (as they often cut the starter wire to install an interrupt) so you may have to take it to an auto electric shop, or one that specializes in alarm systems - Also, dealers sometimes install special "electronic lot key systems" in all of their new cars, requiring that the "electronic key" must be present in the vehicle (along with the correct physical key) in order for it to start - I'd check for one of those systems as well - Hope that helps...

2005 vw caddy no ignition lights, wont turn over


Go back to basics. Spark at plugs? Correct fuel pressure? Injector pulse present? Using a small amount of starter fluid does it start for a moment?

2006 vw new beetle tdi wont start or even try to crank. gage lights are on.


1. Could be faulty key/flat key battery not disabling the security system
Solution - Try your spare key and see if that works

2. Could be low battery - check battery voltage (Lights are LED and will run on super low voltages)

3. Ignition switch failures are super common on VW's. But you need to check the other 2 first.

Key won't come out of ignition on 1999 vw jetta


IGNITION KEY WILL NOT RELEASE

It can be faulty ignition lock cylinder. I suggest to wiggle the steering wheel a bit and see if the key gets released out. If that is not helping then first turn steering wheel to right and try removing the key, or next turn steering wheel to left and see if you can remove the key.

----------

Spray wd-40 in the ignition key hole and let it remain there for few minutes, after that once again try to remove the key and see if that helps.

---------

But if that is not helping then ignition lock cylinder has to be removed out and key has to be manually removed.

Car wont start. dim dash lights. battery good.no headlights.starter motor cranks with screwdriver but wont fire engine


Are you using a screwdriver because the ignition will not cause the starter motor to rotate? If so, there are a few reasons that can be:
1) The starter fuse is blown
2) The starter relay is defective
3) The clutch start switch is defective, or the wiring harness is not making a good connection ( in case you have a manual transmission). A similar switch is mounted on the automatic transmission to make sure the car is in park or neutral when starting.
4) There is also a 60 and 100 amp fuse between the battery and the ignition switch that could be defective.
5) The ignition switch is defective.

When you do use the screwdriver, are you putting the key in the "ON" position? This should start the car if the starter motor is in fact rotating.
