Question about 1995 Chevrolet Lumina
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.
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

sounds like you have a bad starter try to hit the starter with a hammer to see if it starts if it does replace starter or check for power at the small wire on the solenoid
