Re: won't start 200 Vitara
No switch on the brake but there is a neutral safety switch that would prevent your car from starting if you are in nuetral if you have an automatic transmission. If you have a manual, there is a cutch safety switch and you have to have the clutch all the way to the floor to trip the switch. Make sure your floor mats are clear of your clutch- I have seen that happen time and time again.
Try of engaging the emergency barke instead of pressing the brake pedal and see if that makes a differnce. Let me know how that works for you!
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

you mean it wont crank, no car starts with a dead starter. unless push started. wiggle the shifter lever, that is the PRN switch if the switch lies and shows not Park the starter will be dead by DESIGN. you can hot wire any starter solenoid and see if the starter works at any time. if it does , the its not the starter, its the key line. the key switch creates the key line signal. and goes to tranny then starter. if this line opens for ANY reasons, the stater (even good) will never crank. this is to prevent , the old Audi lady from running over her kids. it can be defeated. you can ever add an "override switch) many do after seeing $200 PRN switch, dang. ok you are impowered, (sorry so late )
When you turn the key on the ASD relay should turn on the fuel pump and power the injector, Do this lets cheat the system go to the ASD rely open the cover expose the inside have some one turn the key on does the ASD make contact? If not turn the key on collpase the ASD so it make contact do you hear the fuel pump come on? Now try this just as how you iopen the ASD do the same to the starter relay. Put the car in gear e brake on someone in the vehicle in case the car start and you are in front of it and it runs you over so at least they step on the brakes. Key on ASD exposed as your collapse the starter relay does the ASD relay turn on? Here why if you can control all the relay from under the hood you will need a ignition switch (the eletrical part)
Your VATS security system is failing. Quick fix, turn key forward 2 clicks till right before it starts. Leave it for 10 minutes. (no less) turn back key and then start again. should be fine. Getting these fixed is about 800 bucks. They sell a bypass for 200 online. I did the "10 minute trick" for over a year, till finally the Computer went. I ended up doing the 200 dollar bypass. Works great, no worries.
Wont crank, wont start, everything else seems fine???? Black chip on key? Read up on this link http://newrockies.ca?ap_id=judd0081
Recheck ALL the wiring, check the brake light switch and signal switch. Either on could have gone bad due to its age. Them suspect the controller for the lights. What do the 4 ways do? I think I would be suspecting the signal switch.
try this take a set of jumper cables and find a good ground on the motor and with the battery hooked up like normal run another test ground to the battery if motor starts replace ground cable. hope this helps THUNDERBOLTZ
