Either your starter is out and on the newer cars this if the steering wheel is locked the key wont turn try jiggling the wheel and turn the key at the same time and see if that works

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.

I replaced the ignition lock cylinder in my 92 cabriolet and I turned the key and it started first swing, then I was putting the steering wheel covers back on and it just turned off... When I try to turn...


If it's an automatic check fuse #15 wether it's a stick or automatic you should have power at the red & black wire coming out of your ignition switch when you turn key to start postion and power at the red wire going into switch at all times. if no power coming oit on the red/black wire you need an ignition switch. if there is power coming out of switch try putting car in nuetral (for auto trans). if still nothing you'll need to check for power at small wire going to starter when key is turned to start. if has power then need starter if no power you'll need to check starter interlock relay.

My 2008 silverado won't start battery is charged


No, it isn't an ignition issue.

Check power to the starter motor solenoid.
If this is getting power when cranking, then the issue is with the starter motor solenoid or starter motor. Replace.

2001 jaguar s-type won't crank battery new and charged. Turn the ignition car won't make a sound


many things will cause no start problems could have faulty ignition switch.use test light see if power going to starter if not check ignition fuse to starter.if power going to starter, more likely starter solenoid or starter faulty.if ignition fuse okay and starter and solenoid okay still no start problem could be in the ignition switch or inhibitor switch faulty.code scan for faulty theft security system which will also cause no start conditions.

Ok so I bought a 94 Chrysler concorde... the guy told me you have to turn the key multiple times before it starts...the starter doesn't kick in until basically it wants to...lol he said the ignition...


You may be right. Sometimes a starter test doesn't reveal everything. But before you pull the starter, do this quick test. It should confirm if problem is the starter or the ignition switch. When the car won't crank over, pull the small wire off the starter solenoid (on the starter), and check if it has power when key is held in crank position. You need a helper to hold the key in crank. If the wire has power (use a testlight or meter to check for power), and the starter won't crank, pull the starter off for testing or replacement. But if there is no power on the wire when key is held in crank, then it confirms that power is not being transmitted from the switch to the starter. Not to say for sure it is the switch, could also be another part in the path from switch to solenoid (like the neutral safety switch). But more common for the ignition switch to go out first. Either replace the switch or continue testing your start circuit. Post back with results or for further help. Good luck.

2004 chevy tahoe won't turnover or start by being jumped


The ignition start circuit is the path from the ignition key in cranking mode to the solenoid on the starter. The path travels through a starter relay and a neutral safety switch before it reaches the starter.
This must be the circuit not working on your car.Make sure battery and starter connections are tight.Check for power at the starter solenoid terminal with a testlight when someone turns key to crank. If you have power there, they sold you a defective starter. If you have no power there then it could be the relay or the neutral safety switch.

1982 corvette:start terminal has power on it constantly ignition switch ok. do they have a start relay if so where is it?


starter problem maybe solenoid which is the only relay for starter. If it won,t turn over try this have a buddy get under the starter with a hammer and somebody else turn the ignition key on and hold it while the buddy taps the center of the starter if it starts up that means the bendex in the is bad.Buy new starter.If it does nothing replace solenoid on the starter.
