    Engine won't turn over with key switch. It will turn over if I short out the battery terminal on the solonoid to the ignition post of the solonoid. Engine turns over but will not start with the key in the on position. Put in a new key switch, but still doesn't start. Could it be the neutral safety switch? or the starter?



    Thank you

    Have you tried jumping it - and does the starter make noise, either a click or a spinning sound, if that all checks out you could have a seized engine (blown up)

Could be your neutral safety switch. if your car starts in any other position other than park, or neutral, its faulty and a new sensor is a cheap/easy fix. could also be loose throttle linkage

I have a 2003 grand am 4cyl i have three codes PO137,PO141, PO442 and since i parked it on the 17th and then never went anywhere till the morning of the 19th my car wont start it rolls but wont catch...


The 137 code is low input,rear o2 sensor,141 is a preheat fault at the same o2 sensor,the 442 is an evap leak (like a loose gas cap )
None of these codes would cause a no start condition.I think a fuel pressure test should be first,at least see if you hear the pump run for about 3 seconds as the key is turned on,don't have to crank it just turn the key on and listen (or a helper) at the fuel filler neck.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee wont start ???


sounds like a bad fuel pump. open the gas cap and listen when you turn the key to the on position, not all the way to engage the starter, you should hear a buzzing for 5 or so secands that is the fuel pump in your gas tank. if you dont hear that buzzing the intank fuel pump is probley not working.

2003 grand am wont start


Check obvious problems first. Do you have any indicator dash lights on when trying to crank the engine? A security light means your Passlock system is malfunctioning. If you can turn the engine, then the battery is most likely ok but you can disconnect it for about 5 minutes then reconnect it which will reset the computer. I had an issue with a 99 grand am dieing after starting. Pushing the key in kept it running. Turns out my ignition switch in the dash went bad.There are three coil packs in the v-6 and two in the 4 cylinder. A loose wire would more likely be the cause. Check the fuses under the hood in the convenience center. A bad computer, module near the coil packs, or a bad hall effect cam sensor could cause the fuel injectors to not fire and cut off the fuel supply. Check the fuel pump to see if its working by turning the key to on but not cranking it. If you hear a 2 second sound of the pump then a click then the fuel pump is most likely working.

Turn key wont start- it cranks


check plug for fuel pump in harness near gas tank for corrosion and it may also have seoerated wire where it comes out of connecter the seperation may be from pulling on wires when pump replaced insulation may look alright because it streaches.

Have a 97 grand am that cranks but wont start. changed the ignition switch. injectors are working and has spark to plugs. need help this is my only car


Do you hear the fuel pump make a whirrring sound when you turn the key to the on position ? You should be able to hear it. If not , the fuel **** is not working. Check the shutoff valve and see if the reset button is up. If it is up, press it down and try to hear the pump again when you turn the key to "on\'. If the shutoff is OK, but you don\'t hear the fuel pump. Replace the fuel pump.
