Possible internal starter motor problem. If the battery is good, try tapping on the starter while someone holds the key in the crank position. If the vehicle starts, the starter motor will need to be replaced
You will have damaged some of the critical electronic components on the engine when you connected the power source up the wrong way.
Until you identify and replace all the damaged components you will not be able to start the engine. To begin with the starter motor solenoid and starter motor will most likely be damaged. You would need to check with a mechanic or auto electrician on all the items that will be damaged as a result of connecting power up incorrectly.
Are you saying the engine will not crank, or crank but will not start ? None of the engine sensors come into play until after the engine is cranking. Cranking problems can include the neutral safety switch and other factors with the crank circuit back to the key switch.
shorting to start motor will allow the motor to turn but the ignition system is still off. try with key turned to ignition position. suspect starter solenoid on starter motor. suspect fuses maybe there is a fuse which has blown. suspect ignition key switch maybe defective.
Hello I have simular problem the ignition on is stuck in that position with the key turned off and out of the ignition switch.It feels like the key switch is spinning freely in the ignition. Do I need an ignition switch?
the shifter has a park neutral lock out device. it will not shift out ( see left side of console for hidden cover, move lever inside for emergancy shifting) until you start motor, step on the brake and then the solenoid in the shifter box unlocks the shifter.
but that is not the problem.
back up. car will not start or the car will not crank.
turn key ,nothing happens. turn key , just hear starter solenoid click turn key , motor cranks, grrrrrrrrrrrrrr, but will not start.
when it wont crank, you will need a test lite to ck the small wire at starter for a 12 volt signal when commanded to start by the key. also make sure there is 12 volts from battery going to larger wire on starter. if so and still wont crank, starter replacement is probable. (assuming grounds are clean) they can be very intermittent. another quick test would be while trying to start, holding key in start position, rap lightly on starter with hammer to see if it kicks, if so, replace starter.
