  • Check the oil. What motor is in it? It probably has a bad crankshaft sensor.

Where is the safety switch for a 2006 chevy malibu


Safety switch ? For what ? Park neutral safety switch ,is this what you mean ? Your vehicle not starting ? There is a lot more involved then just that switch.
Circuit Description
For ignition switch power modes refer to Body Control System Description and Operation. Once the ignition is placed in the Run/Crank position, the control circuit of the Run/Crank relay is grounded by the body control module (BCM). With the Run/Crank relay switch closed, battery positive voltage flows through it and on to the park/neutral position (PNP) switch. With the PNP switch in either the Park or Neutral position, battery positive voltage will flow to the starter relay coil supply voltage input terminal of the powertrain control module and the coil side of the starter relay. Placing the ignition in the START position sends a message to the engine control module (ECM)/powertrain control module (PCM) requesting engine start. If the ECM/PCM has determined that the transmission is in Park or Neutral and theft is not active, it will ground the control circuit of the starter relay. Battery positive voltage will then flow through the switch side of the starter relay to the S terminal of the starter solenoid, cranking the engine. For remote vehicle start (RVS) information, refer to Keyless Entry System Description and Operation.

Truck will turn over but wont crank,no fire to coil,replaced coil still no fire


No fire to the coil or no fire from it? There's one wire from the ignition circuit to the coil that energizes it. If there's no power to the coil there, replacing the coil wouldn't gain anything, and the problem would require several steps to try to diagnose.
If there is power to the coil, but no spark from it to the distributor, then the first two things I'd consider are the ignition control module and the reluctor assembly in the distributor.
I would need to know more specifically what you checked and how.

Shuts down for no apparent reason ?


Three possibilities come to mind (not sure what you mean by switch plate assembly). Ignition coil, pickup coil and ignition module. When it stalls you'll have to check to confirm there is no spark. If there is none you'll have to replace one component at a time until the problem is solved. Testing is difficult under these circumstances. If there is spark when it stalls you have a fuel problem.

Won;t crank


Hi, if the car engine fails to crank, there is a fault in one of the components in the battery/ignition/starter circuit. Low battery (Check battery voltage, recharge if low, or jump start with another vehicle or battery charger). Bad starter relay/solenoid (Check for voltage at relay, if relay has voltage but there is no "click" when key is turned to start, replace relay). Bad ignition switch (Check to see if voltage reaches starter relay/solenoid when turn to start. If not, check for open P/N switch and brake or clutch pedal switch. Replace ignition switch if defective).

94 Dodge Dakota V6 manual transmission will not crank over


Most likely to be one of two things: a bad ignition switch or a blown starter fuse. I think at the front left side of the engine there is a relay box on top of the engine, inside this is a 40amp fuse for the starter. Replace this. (It may be in a different location on a '94 - check your owner's manual) Wiring harness faults at the steering column is a common problem with Dakotas and these can develop a short circuit that will blow out the starter fuse. You may want to carry around a spare fuse with you.

Changed water pump on 1994 dodge dakota sport


Hi my name is Allen!
Not sure how changing a water pump could cause a no start, but it sounds like the main Ignition Fuse may have blown some how, or you accidently knocked a connector loose some where. Check the PCM and make sure all the connectors are plugged in tightly.

For further asistance you may contact me through FixYa!
