Monte Not Turning On

I have a 2002 Monte Carlo, and it will not start at all. I will not even turn over. I am not sure if it is my oil pressure gage, my battery, or my starter, or maybe something different from all of those. For a while m security light has been on, so I am in desperate need of help, please.

    I have a 2002 Chevy Monte Carlo SS, every now and then it will not start. The battery is, lights etc...all continue to turn on, car just doesn't want to start at all. Also the Security light has started coming on recently, not sure if it is related to the car not starting sometimes or not. Have seen other posts with same issues. I am starting to think the problem may have something to do with the relays. I opened that box and jiggled them the last couple of times this happened and car started. I will have these checked. Does anyone know if this could be the problem?

    Now I'm concerned. My security light has been coming on lately too in my 02 Monte Carlo.

If security light has been on I'd look to the cause of that first. It may have locked out the starting system.

04 monte carlo ss engine temp slowly goes up and oil pressure gage bottoms out at idle. Drive and engine temp stops raising and starts to slowly decrease. Next stop, at idle cycle continues. Oil pressure...

Sounds like you need to replace thermostat assy and add new antifreeze and as far as your oil gauge, replace the "oil pressure sending unit". That should solve your problem

Low oil pressure came an wont shut off even after a oil change then even put some lucas oil in 2000 monte carlo

First step is to remove the oil pressure sending unit and replace it with an oil pressure gauge to make sure you don't have an engine oiling system problem. If you have good oil pressure you probably just have a bad sending unit.

Oil pressure gage only works about 25 percent of the time. Otherwise it stays on zero. 2002 Monte Carlo with 3.8 engine.

Make sure your oil is at the proper level. If your car seems to be running good I would check the wiring the the oil pressure sender. Not sure where yours is located but if the wiring looks good you could just have a bad oil pressure sending unit.

No fuel pressure at fuel rail. No reading on fuel pressure gage when turning key on.

Replace the fuel pump. It is electronic and isn't powering up. Make sure you check the fuses first to eliminate that as a problem. There are 2, 1 inside the vehicle in the fuse panel and one in the power distribution box under the hood.

2002 monte carlo. won't start when I turn the key until about three trys. no click or nothing . already had transmission switch replaced.

If you're not doing anything else but turning the ignition switch back and forth, I would say that the ignition switch is a definite suspect.

2002 monte carlo overheating

Better make sure the fan works. There is a switch on the radiator that turns the fan on when it gets to a certain temperature. It could be the fan or the switch. Your thermostat is not your cap, it's in a different location. (Usually at the engine end of the upper radiator hose) Get the leak check! A good garage can pressure test the system to see what leaks you might have.

Starter continues turning after I release the key.87 monte carlo

Hi, Check and make sure the starter relay is not sticking. If it is not, then the bendix in the starter is probably bad or not shimmed properly. You can check the starter when you remove it, be careful of the torque. Good Luck to you. Hope this Fixsya!
