Sounds like your Interlock switch on the Brake pedal switch or the linkage in the shift cable is out of time. Check brakelights.

There was a problem in vehicle lurching when started. There were 2 different ideas to solve this. One system would allow the starter to work and the engine to run, but made shifting out of Park impossible without a foot on the brake. The other system required the foot on the brake and this signal would allow the starter solenoid to get a pulse from the Ignition switch. Some required the Gearshift to be in Park or Neutral before the brake signal could clear the Ignition and provide a pulse.

So your brake pedal switch probably is out of position or broken. If it is good, then the Gearshift position must be slightly off.

Also check the small wires on the solenoid to see if Voltage is present whenkey is turned to start and foot on brake.

SOURCE: ignition

Sounds like the battery is dead, you have just enough power to have the lights come on, but no cranking of the starter. Try putting the battery on a trickle charger, or hook up jumper cables to another car which is running. Let it run with the jumper cables connected for two mintues before you try and start your car.

SOURCE: Engine turns but wont start

check the key that year modle has a chip in the key and if it was around something magnetic it could have lost it's programing. If that is not it the there is a fuel rail with what looks like a air pressure valve. turn the key on and press that valve if fuel sprays out it is your key. If fuel doesn't spray the it is your pump

Fuel shut off silenoid has no power


Hi Cody, As you have power to one side, the other will be the ground connection. Take out the solenoid and us a battery to check its operation. You may like to use the dis guarded one first, I'm suggesting this because it seems the problem may have been a bad earth connection. Once you prove the operation check the earth on the vehicle. Regards John
