Nothing happens when you turn the key

'07 Elantra - when you turn the key, nothing happens -- nothiing electrical works - if you get out of the car, lock it (with remote), wait a bit, then unlock it, the car starts normally - the clock and radio need to be reset. happened twice in about a year but after the second time it has happened 5 or 6 times in last 3 months. then yesterday, it happened again but now it will not lock (with remote) and will not start.

07 chrysler sebring won't crank no start everything works but radio don't turn on? My car has a chip in order for it to start..did that nothing? ?? Please help me

What chip are you talking about ? The key transponder chip ? This is part of the -anti-theft system ! If you replace the chip it has to be progammed or it won't work, is the theft light lit on the instrument cluster ?

If this is the problem your having your best bet is take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop or have an automotive locksmith check it out .

2013 Hyundai Elanta will not start, turn key , new battery, nothing, all lights n dash work, could it be the alarm system OEM

If you have a second key, try that one. Sometimes 1 key will unlock, 1 key will start. If not it would be the anti theft or security system disabling the ignition module. Which is why it won't even try to turn over.

98 elantra will not start and headlights dont work

Check that the battery connections are tight and secure. If yes, check the starter motor connectors and check current to the starter while the ignition key is turned. If there is no current, try wiring the starter directly to the battery. If it turns, then the problem is in the wiring or it could be the starter motor fuse. If the starter does not turn, remove the starter and take it to an auto parts store for testing.
