Check ALL FUSES!!!!!!!! Believe it or not I workd on a Buick Century mid 90's model and a fuse marked for injectors was bad and car would not turn over from ign switch. This also caused a no charging problem at the same time cause ign switch sent no signal to alternator to charge.

Does the car have a factory security system? it may have a starter kill on it.
also check for voltage at the starter solenoid while someone holds the key to start position, you could have a faulty ignition switch.

drill out the lock with a 5 mm drill bit to the depth of the key, the drill will turn the lock and probably start the car when it is drilled out just enough and the key will still work in the lock if you push it right in only any key will now fit and this key will fall out going round corners... you can get the ignition barrel and key for about £25 from car breakers, and now the lock is drilled once you push in the buttons on the bottom of the barrel it will come out easily = theres always an escort on the breakers, any MK4 escort lock will fit, get the door locks and keys too if you dont want more than one key with the car - having mismatched keys reduced the resale value also.

Starter not work but can bump start nissan sunny "N" reg


Rock your car back and forth. The starter is stuck between teeth. I had a jeep that had the same problem. It had teeth missing on the starter motor. This seemed to do the trick
