SOURCE: The key will get stuck in the ignition in 99 Hyundai Elantra.

IT could be two things. The first thing it could be is the ignition itself. This type of ignition has a electrical plug that will pop up when the car is put in park so if the car is not in park or n the key will not come out. On elantras these sometimes fail and fail often. When thay do fail the key will get stuck and like you said you can go back later and the key will come out. The problem is that you do want to get a new ing you will have a 2 keys. your old keys for your doors and a new one for your ing cause hyundai will not rekey ingitions. The second thing that it could be is called a park safety switch when you put the shifter in park it sends a signal to the electrical plug to lift up. This sensor is under your shifter and also goes bad often causeing the same problem. These sensors are in the same circuit and are tied together I always replace both.

first check all cables for corrosion on the battery. then go under the truck and check all cables that are on the starter. if they are clean then replace the starter because the solenoid is going bad.

Amazing!.. Belts don't 'ignite!' Never have and never will. Find yourself a good mechanic/technician and get them to look at it.

Hey, I have a 2011 Polaris 850 touring. When I turn the key to start it it just clicks 1 time, every time I turn the key. I replaced the battery all electronic's work. I also had the starter tested and...

Check the solenoid. The solenoid is the real switch between the battery and the starter, the key switch only activates the solenoid. The click you're hearing is probably the solenoid trying to click in, if it's faulty it makes no contact and the starter will not turn.

97 Ford Escort 2.0 - Starting issues. It has a

regardless if its a factory or aftermarket alarm, the single click sound is an indication that the starter solenoid is failing

with the solenoid mounted on the starter, about the only thing the shop could have did wrong is not clean off the surfaces where the start mounts and that is assuming you have oil leaks under the vehicle and/or they even removed the starter.

honestly, it just sounds like bad luck with a failing starter solenoid

Takeing about 5 turns on the key before starter

If you hear a "clicking" sound when you hit the key, it is likely the starter solenoid. Sometimes they stick, especially if its cold where you live. Hitting the key numerous times will jar it enough so the car will start, sometimes. You'll likely need to replace the starter if this is the case.

My car will start sometimes and then other times I have to keep

If your here just one click when you turn the key to start then i suspect you have a starter going bad.If you heard several clicks while turning the key over once then that would be a weak battery.:)

1995 ford f150 makes single loud click when trying to start

Does it make the loud click just once, or will it continue to click when you turn the key?
If it is just once, then there is still a bad connection someplace for the main power. If it continues to click every time you turn the key to "start", then it is probably the starter solenoid itself that is bad. There are two big terminals (bolts) on the solenoid, and if you connect a 12V test light or meter across them, you should see power there. If the light doesn't go out (or very dim) when you turn the ign. to 'start', then the solenoid is bad. If the light goes out and the starter doesn't turn, then there is something wrong with the starter. I suspect the solenoid also because it works better with a strong charge on the battery.

95 olds achieva starter not engaging

The click you hear is the starter relay. Check for continuity thru relay with battery negative cable disconnected and switch in start position. If no continuity, it probably has burned contacts. Sometimes these can be taken apart and contacts filed/sanded cleaned.

Car wont start...sometimes

Sounds like a bad starter solenoid, usually cheapest and easiest to replace the starter and solenoid as a unit. It is always best to check for power between the solenoid and the starter with a test light, if the solenoid clicks but the test light doesn't light up you have found the problem in the solenoid.
