Sounds like the Pinon(gear) in the starter is getting stuck and not disengaging when you release the key. It may need to be lubed up or replaced.

Check the starter soleniod. The soleniod may be worn internaly and sticking in the start mode. Best thing is to replace soleniod.

I have 2002 pt . I have no problem with it, started it and put in gear, went to pull out and it shut off, now it won,t start back up, put new battery in, new switch, still nothing,


Possible starter failure if the engine doesn't crank. You can try tapping on the starter motor using a blunt object while turning the key to see if it starts. If it starts, suspect a defective starter motor. If it is a manual transmission, you can push start it in gear

Could be wired wrong ... power going to the solenoid all of the time and not from the ignition start position on your switch. Remove the small lead on the solenoid and see if it stops. If it does check the ignition switch.

there are a few things that will cause this problem 1 is a stuck solenoid, 2 starter drive pinion stuck in the ring gear or flywheel. 3 ignition switch is shorted internally. I would try tapping the starter motor with a hammer or steel bar then turning the key to the on position... If the problem is gone replace the solenoid.

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.

When I turn the ignition, the dashboard lights up but the car will not start (the motor does not sound to be turning over)


hi, if when you turn the key nothing happens or you just hear a faint clicking sound then this indicates that the starter motor needs replacing.

If you open the bonnet and get someone to turn the key to start the car you might hear a clicking sound coming from the starter motor if you hear this then this indicates the starter motor needs replacing, if on the other hand you hear nothing at all then you need to check all the wires going to the starter.
Also check the earth wires coming from the battery check they are all connected where they earth out on the body of the car and where it connects to the engine.

You could also try giving the starter motor a few hard hits with a hammer this usually gets it working for a few times.
Also if you car is manual gear box then put it in say 2nd gear then get someone to push the car slightly so that you are turning the engine that way then try starting using the key this also sometimes get the starter working be be warned this isnt permanent fix so get the starter changed sooner rather than later ok

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

There are various things this could be ie inhibitor switch on auto box relays wiring fault or ignition barrel problems try putting the starting the car in N instead of P and wiggle gear lever about other option bypass everything and connect a live feed straight to starter motor cranking wire which is located on the starter motor, if car still wont turn over tap starter motor with a hammer, if hammer trick works then you need a new starter

As soon as I turn the key to the on position, the engine turns over


The problem is either in the mechanism that pushes the rod that activates the ignition switch from the key lock cylinder, or the ignition switch is defective.
