SOURCE: starting engine problems

It seems to be a PCM failure. (Power control module). I would suggest that you take it to a good mechanic. it is fairly easy to remove and reinstall. But if it is a different PCM you will have to do a re-learn on the PCM. that is not that easy. but if you find somebody to do it, it is worth it. Be sure and tell them you know that it is the PCM. I really hope this works for you. it is worth the try. Better than having all those problems.

All you need to do is turn your steering wheel to the left all the way till it stops then put your key in while still holding the steering wheel to the left, turn the key to the on position this should release your steering wheel!

SOURCE: key won't turn in the ignition

You may need to have they key reprogrammed at your local dealer. The keys have a transponder built in them as an anti theft device. If the transponder becomes damaged, it will need reprogramming or replacement. *NOTE* This costs MUCH more than just having your key copied (between $30 and $75 US)

SOURCE: Truck Wont Start and Battery Runs Down.

get a load test done on you battery and alter nator and check your starter for corrision check battery connections before you jump start it and when hooking up cables to your truck let it charge for a few minutes before you crank it if alternator is fried it will only run on juice of battery then will die.the clicking sound is your starter trying to engage but not enough cranking amps left in battery if you can get it going or take the battery out and take to a good auto shop and get them to load test it no point replacing a good battery just to find out it is alternator or starter
I personaaly think it may be alternator but suggest you test if battery is good starter as well ! more thing check that battery terminals are clean and tight

SOURCE: 2001 Chevrolet Blazer LS 2-dr, 4 wheel drive, 2 cranks to start

Try replacing the fuel filter first, but it sounds like your loosing your fuel pressure prim when the fuel pump is not working. The fuel pressure should be 62-65 PSI with the engine not running the the ignition key turned on and should drop about 5 psi when the engine is running. If you turn the engine off and check the fuel pressure, it stat steady for morn then 15min. If it drops fast, then you have a leak at your fuel pressure regulator (common) or your return fuel check valve which is located at your fuel sending unit.
Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter, it could just be to dirty to pressurize the fuel system fast enough giving you the hard start.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck

Why does the engine turn but wont start on a 2001 chrysler voyager


Hi, it's hard to turn the wheel because the power steering only works when the engine is running.
your non start issue could be several things? So start by checking the basics like petrol,plugs,fuses etc....
also did the car stop when you were driving or after over night?.
Is your car petrol,diesel?

How to replace power steering pump on a 1992 Grand Am


To remove the power steering pump you need to remove the drive belt and disconnect the pressure and return lines from the pump, then remove the mounting bolts. This will allow you to remove the pump. To replace with a new or reman pump just follow the directions in reverse. After you have re-installed the pump, fill your pump reservoir to the FULL COLD mark. You have to raise just the front of the car so you can move the wheels freely, this will allow you to bleed the hydraulic system. (you don't want air bubbles :) ) With the key in the on position (don't crank) turn the wheels all the way to the left position, check the fluid and make sure it's still at the FULL COLD mark, if not, add more fluid. Then turn the wheels to the full right position and then left again several times without hitting the stops, and make sure again that the fluid is at cold fill. After turning the wheel back and forth several times, make sure the fluid is clear and bubble free. Start the engine and check the fluid. Let it off the stands and take it for a test drive. When you return, check the fluid at the FULL HOT mark, if it's lower, add fluid. Remember to check for leaks!! For easier procedure, make sure to have someone help you or you'll be doing a lot of running around :) Good Luck

Why would turning the steering wheel while cranking engine gets my car to start?


The ignition switch in the column most likely has a break in it. So when you move the steering wheel, it moves the wire so it completes the connection when you turn the key. Have the ignition switch replaced.

How to bleed power steering system to a 1997 chrysler sebring


Very simple!!! I posted this under how to bleed the steering system in the "Tips" section....you can do this yourself and is very easy.

Sebring Coupe And Avenger
  1. Check the power steering fluid level, and add if necessary.

Use only MOPAR ATF PLUS automatic transmission fluid type 7176, DEXRON II automatic transmission fluid, or equivalent, in the power steering system.

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle to lift the front wheels off the ground.
  2. Manually turn the pump pulley a few times.
  3. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and to the right 5 or 6 times.

If bleeding is attempted with the engine running, air will be absorbed in the fluid. Bleed only while cranking the engine.

  1. Disconnect the ignition high tension cable and, while operating the starter motor intermittently, turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and right 5-6 times for 15-20 seconds. During the bleeding procedure, make sure the fluid in the reservoir never falls below the lower position of the filter.
  2. Connect the ignition high tension cable, then start the engine and allow it to idle.
  3. Turn the steering wheel left and right until there are no air bubbles in the reservoir. Confirm that the fluid is not milky and that the level is up to the specified position on the dipstick. Also confirm that there is very little change in the fluid level when the steering wheel is turned. If the fluid level changes more than 0.2 inches (about a 1/4 inch), the air has not been completely bled. Repeat the process.

    // // 0) preLoad.src = ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_ImageArray[i]; } ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.lastIndex = 26; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.populateLog = theForm.elements['ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_PopulateLog']; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.treeViewID = 'ctl00$cphLeft$chRepairTreeNav$tvTOC'; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.name = 'ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data'; //]]> var _strTreeScrollHidName = 'ctl00_hidTreeScrollPos'; c17hydro_19.gif

      Check whether or not the fluid level changes between when the engine is running and when it is stopped

    Car will not start and steering wont unlock


    Your steering wheel may be jammed. This happens when you park on an incline and the force of the car rolling back jams the steering. Try to turn the steering wheel hard in one direction while trying to crank, then the other direction if the first doesn't work. You may need to take pressure off of the steering lock by pushing the car a little bit.
