1995 chevy lumina car will not start

I have ruled out battery, The lights and all still come on. When I turn the key it does nothing, no sound at all. The fuses under hood are good. Is there another fuse box located on in the car ? Do you have any suggestions as to what it might be? I am single mom trying to fix the problem myself.

    what your problem is is the key itself, it has a security chip in it and if worn out it wont let the car start, you can get a mechanic to do a wire bypass for it or you must get the ignition key changed after they scan the key for the numbers to redo it. your other alternative is to jump it using a screwdriver and jump the starter and solinoid. hope this helps that is my problem and to have the ignition redone costs alot.

Make sure the key is clean. The little metal tab in the black square on the part of the key that goes into the ignition must be clean so it can make contact. I had that happen to me, if that is not clean in there the lights will all work but it won't crank. It's all linked to a switch in the column that prevents the car from being stolen. Try sliding the key in and out a few times, or shoot WD-40 in there, worked for me.

Sounds like the inline fuse popped. It is located in the positive(red) cable coming from the battery to the starter. Just follow it from the battery down, and you should run into it near the starter. It will be a fat cylinder of rubber on the cable itself. The fuse is located inside that chunk of rubber. If it is burnt, cut it out, then strip the 2 ends of the cable back about an inch or so. Spread out the wires, push them together so they inter-twine, solder them if possible. Then wrap them good with a strong electrical tape or shrink wrap it. I hope that this will help you. Best wishes and God Bless. Oh, if you still need me, I'll be here. Take care.

Try to start it in neutral. the trans. has a safety switch that will not allow the car to start in anything, but park and neutral. sometimes the shift lever gets a little out of line with the gear indicator. also try firmly shifting into and out of park a few times. this may flip the switch. good luck

Try looking at the fuses one by one abd locate the fuse that says ignition or engine , if they are good look at your battery cables some of them have a fuseable link built in and it may have burnt out

My 1995 Chevy Lumina will not start when I turn the key. The engine does not make any sound at all (no clicking in engine), however the radio, horn, brake lights, and all other lights work properly inside...


sounds like you have a lame solenoid on the starter .i'd start there.get a voltage tester and test for 12 volts at the solenoid terminal if there is 12 volts and the starter still doest engage when you hit the key test the ignition wire on the solenoid when you turn the key it should apply 12 volts as well .if works then take the starter out and find a good repair shop and try a new solenoid first then the starter is next to test .

On my 1995 Chevy Lumina I replaced the battery, starter, fuel line and & filter but it still won't crank up, what could be the issue?


it could be the pump. have someone turn the key but not start and listen by the tank for a short 1 to 2 second hum. If you hear nothing then your pump is bad and you will need to remove the gas tank.
