If you've checked the starter and it's good, you probably need an ignition switch. The ignition switch is a little plastic box located under the dash. It is hooked onto or near the steering column.

    I just replaced one of these on my grandsons van. I had never heard of one until i started troubleshooting his van. It was simple to replace. Just two little bolts/screws.

SOURCE: no ignition

DOES THE ENGINE TURN OVER(CRANK)? IF IT CRANKS BUT NO START THE TWO WHITE WIRES FROM THE IGNITION CYLINDER IN THE STEERING COLLUMN ARE PROBABLY BROKEN AND WILL NOT SEND THE RESISTANCE FROM THE KEY TO THE SECURITY MODULE. IF THIS IS THE PROBLEM YOU NEED TO CHENGE THE IGNITION LOCK CYLINDER OR INSTALL A RESISTOR UNDER THE DASH THAT IS THE SAME RESISTANCE AS THE KEY ON THOSE TWO WHITE WIRES. SORRY BUT SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED A MECHANIC/TECH WITH KNOWLEDGE OF THIS PROBLEM TO HELP YOU.

SOURCE: Turn key, nothing happens

It could be the park/neutral switch, next time it doesn't start try wiggling the shifter in park while turning the key, or shift to neutral and see if that will work. if that doesn't change the problem I would replace the ignition switch.

SOURCE: my 2002 Alero wont start

Since you've tried the 10 minute relearn process with no luck, Try this same process 3 x in a row without trying to start in between. Will take a little over a half hour. If this still does not work, and the security light is solid (not flashing) this indicates a bad TDM. (passlock security computer)(Theft Deterrent Module). A new one will cost about 700 bucks. But this entire system is able to be bypassed permanently. If all else fails, check out this link. Its full of info on how the system works, along with "do it yourself" ways to fix it. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

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.

Antitheft or Security system failure is a common problem on GM vehicles. Every time you put your key in the ignition, the vehicle's security system reads the signal from your key to make sure it is OK to run. When it receives the "correct key" signal, the security system allows the starter to turn over, and/or the fuel injectors to function and your car works like it normally does every day. If you were to use a different key, or try to hot wire it, the system would shut down these parts of your car, thus making the vehicle completely immobile. This is GM's way of preventing vehicle theft. The problem is that the system is known to fail quite commonly. It has been failing consistently for around 30 years. When it fails, two things can happen. First, you turn the key and nothing happens at all. Lights work, radio works, windows work... just not the starter that you need to start the vehicle. This is a "starter immobilizer". Second, you turn the key and the vehicles starts just fine, but then stalls in 2-5 seconds. This is a "fuel immobilizer". It literally cuts off the fuel injectors and stalls the vehicle to immobilize it. These are normally, but not always followed by a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. These lights are to inform you of the system's failure to collect the information it needs from your key to the computer. If your security/antitheft light is on, odds are you will be stranded soon, if not already. Remember that the security system controls the security light. If the system is failing, the light may never warn you of the failure. There is a lot of info on this site that you can read up on. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Car wont start


Could be the linkage between the lock cylinder and the switch, or the trick was just a red herring and had nothing to do with the problem.
Will it crank in neutral ? Do you have power at the starter ?

I have 2003 Monte carlo when its hot outside and sun beating down on it, I turn the key and nothing happens. I have to try several times then it starts.


Next time this happens, check out the dash and see if there is a light on somewhere that says SECURITY. When the anti theft begins to fail, it can disable your starter making the ignition seem like its doing nothing. If you see the security light when this happens then id say 100% that this your problem. This link explains it and gives you some DO IT YOURSELF fix it options. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Turn key and nothing just silence.


It could be either one of those. If your ignition key has the little chip(black plastic with metal in the middle) on it between the teeth and handle it could be the VAT security module or the key itself. Does this happen sporadically or is this the first time that has happened?
