    I changed the transmission on a jeep Cherokee 1994 4drive. It worked fine. I parked it for the night. The next day, it did not work. The engine refused to start. It seems that the spark plugs were not activated. Any ideas what could be causing this?

I had the same problem drove me crazy I got pissed and started buying parts I changed the Starter and it was fixed go figure. It can be a lot of problems causing this, but if nothing else take the starter off and take it to advance, autozone or somewhere like this have it tested if it is the starter it cost me about 80 bucks and 30 minutes of my time. GOOD LUCK!!!

Could this be an Immobiliser problem? or Gear Inhibitor switch?
If the vehicle is Automatic try running the selector back and forth into neutral and try again? no luck? try park.
Does your vehicle have a Immobiliser fob/key? if key type does the light stop blinking/go out when inserted? if a fob are the batteries o.k.? also has the fob been dropped or become damp? (It may need re-coding @ Chrysler Dealer).
Finally if all these check out then I would be looking for a possible fuse blow then onto to Starter or solenoid.
All bases covered there. Me thinks you are going to be busy? I'm sure you'll sort it.
Good Luck!

Try running the gear selector through all the gears then back into park. If the same thing happens then set your emergency brake, place the gear selector in neutral, while pressing on the brake pedal try to start it. If this works you may have to replace the switch that senses when it is in park. Good Luck

2016 ford edge wont start

no sound = check for battery connection. Turning on lights to see if they are bright or dim helps to find out if your battery is fully charged or not. If you get nothing, it might be a dead battery, or like I stated, just a poor connection. Start with the simple thing first. Battery connection..

I have a 2010 Hyundai Veracruz had dead battery was dead, tried to jump start, no luck battery is fully recharged. Turning on key all dash lights and gauges works but nothing when key is turned on. N

If you are sure the battery is charged and nothing happens when you turn the key you have a poor wiring connection somewhere or possibly an poor connection internal to the battery. First, turn on the headlights, then try to start the car. If the headlights go dim when you do that, you have a bad connection. If they stay bright, you are not completing the starting circuit. The most likely cause is a bad battery post connection. Remove the terminals and clean them to shiny metal then replace and try again. If that does not work try it again with a new battery.

2005 trailblazer ignition key will not turn

If you had a dead battery, its likely the code in the radio part of the key no longer is synchronised with the car. Only a dealer can fix that I'm afraid, unless there is a guidance (check, changing the keyfob battery for example) in the car's handbook. Good luck.
Note that when it sometimes (very occasionally) doesn't work its usually due to some kind of radio interfererence just at that moment nearby. There are cases reported here in UK where several neighbours at the same time can't use their car because of some localised radio interference problems.

My 1998 ford escort stop running no lights

start with the battery. needs at least 11 or 12 volts to start the car. By no lights, do you mean nothing, absolutely nothing comes on? no lights on dash when you turn key to on? If so, need to check battery connections. are they both tight and clean? Is battery fully charged? Before you can diagnose the car you musthave a good battery that is fully charged. Then you can try and start it. If it still wont start or crank over you may have a main fuse out that would be under hood near battery.

Nothing happens when I turn the key

The battery is dead, or the battery cables are loose. Try adjusting/tightening the battery cables first. If that doesn't work, the battery is dead or just discharged. Try to find someone that will give you a jump. Good luck.

Car wont start.charged battery,nothing when i turn the key.

if you hear a loud click and nothing happens sounds like the starter has a dead spot in it. Sometimes tapping on the body of the starter with a hammer will make it crank.
