    my aztek hasnt ran for some time. symptoms starting with dash lights,bells and whistles sounding at any given time, along with not starting sometimes. I was told this was BCM related so i replaced the bcm (200$) and had it reprogrammed at the dealer, who then informed me this new bcm wont hold a program, siting a fault in the a fuse box. I relaced this fuse box, tried old bcm and new, still wont start. it has all dash light when on, fuel pump, radio etc. starter can be jumped. good battery. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Do the dash lights come on ? They should come on when the key is turned to the on position. If nothing happens check the engine relay. It is not too expensive to replace if you really want to eliminate that as the problem. Check all wires going to the starter and make sure it is wired correctly.

Why am I having problems starting my Bravada. There is power, the started worksb, but when I turn the key nothing happens.All the dash board lights come on but no starter engagement?


do the dashboard lights go out when key turned to start? when you say nothing happens,is there a click? does the motor turn over,but not fire? is it an automatic,meaning is the gear inhibitor switch preventing starter from working?have you tried a jumper battery?putting a jumper lead from the battery earth to the engine ground helps sometimes,if earthing cables broken

Why won't my highlander start.Nothing happens when key turned to start. Starter not turning.


If you went straight to starter with jumper cables and you got nothing then , then pull and have starter bench tested. Also make sure you haven't trigger some kind of security on your system that would lock you out from starting. you should see a security light flashing if you did.

I have a 2009 Ford Escape that intermittently will not start. I bought it used from the dealer for my daughter to drive to school which is a couple of miles from home. This is what happens. I put the key...


Believe it or not I have found that one key will start my 2009 Ford escape and the other will not-even after replacing the battery in the key. I though it was a dead battery or possibly the starter but it is the key. I haven't figured out how to get the key repaired. Thank God I had a spare one!

I have a 1996 chevy truck and with the key off my lights are on and my back light is on and when i try to start it there is nothing?


Is the lights being on draining the battery, if not then you have two problems, first check the lights, unplug connector from headlight switch and see if that turns lights off, if so then replace the headlight switch, next is the starting if battery is fully charged and nothing happens when key is turned then i would start by checking the starter, with a test light have someone hold the key in the start postion while you test starter, the back of the starter seliniod you will see two connections, one is a big connection with a battery cable going to it, that cable should have power at all times then theres a small connection next ti the big one with a small wire, thats the trigger wire that should have power when key is in the start postion, if theres power to both then replace the starter and thats the starting problem. good day.

if you turn headlights on and turn key to start do you hear clicking? if so starter is possibly bad,lets trouble shoot your problem.suggest you check the fuses under hood in black box,make sure those are good. when you turn the key, you should hear at least a click or else the starter is not drawing current.try turning the headlights on and at same time turn the key and try to start, if lights go dim the starter is drawing current, does it click? if so then bad starter. if no noise at all,,still could be a bad starter.suggest that you remove the starter and have it checked out.also make sure the car is in park for sure before you do any of this. hope this helps!!

mcdevito75 her, My immediate thought is a dead or weak battery, but it could be a bad starter also, here"s what to do, inside the car turn the key 1 notch to the on position, note the dash lights, now turn the key to start and note the dash lights again, do they go dim?? if they do you most likely have a weak battery, if the dash lights do not dim, open the door so the interior light comes on, any interior light, try to start the car, if the interoir light dims, you have a weak battery, if it does not dim with the key all the way to start, check and clean the battery connections, and suspect a bad starter. Any electrical appliance can go bad very quickly. Also if the battery is2 years old, replace it.

I have a 1997 Grand Am 2.4 SE that won't start


Check battery full charge, battery terminals are clean, cables aren't cracked, broken or corroded and alternator first.

Which your having replaced your starter with new already. If you're still getting nothing it sounds like a bad ignition switch.

They wear normally and need to be replaced. But as a helpful hint don't place excess keys or weighty trinkets on your ignition keys.

They wear on the seating of the key in the ignition and often promote failure in the ignition from bearing the dangling weight.
