Your ignition barrel has failed. It is just a tube with a lot of switches in it and they fail sometimes.

SOURCE: security light on and car not starting

Put the key in ignition and leave in the on position for 20 minutes and it should start after that. I had the same problem with a 99 chev silverado an it worked for that. Hope it get you going. Thanks.Bear001

SOURCE: No Start when key is turned

Ma wish to check starter it could be bad or have loose wires on it. There may be a starter relay in the fuse box under the hood it may also be bad.

SOURCE: won't start getting nothing when i turn key

Recheck all your connections, battery. starter, look for fuseable link on small wire going to starter. Might want to chk.that wire with test light when key switch is in start position and see if it lights. If it does not light might be starter switch under dash on steering colume.

SOURCE: can't remove key from ignition. battery is dead

If the battery is dead, the ignition keys will not release from the ignition. If there is no signal from the transmission shifter that it's in park since the battery is dead, then the ignition lock will not release the keys.  After charging the battery or jumping the blazer to start it and the key's still will not release, try this. 
There is a "plunger" as part if the ignition. Under the steering wheel there is a small removable cap that you can take off and put a small screw driver up into and press the plunger in and it will release the key. Good luck and hope this helps, Keep me posted be glad to help.

My 2004 f150 wont start. i drove it to the store and everything worked fine. when i came out of the store, the truck won't start. when i turn the key nothing happens. i can hear a clicking noise coming...


I would check your battery. I would also look for loose grounds. The clicking you hear is your fuel pump turning on. I would check your battery voltage and, have the battery load tested.

Not starting nothing at all


little to broad could be fuel system or electrical systems, it's not starting as in when you turn the key it makes no noise at all or when you turn the key it cranks but does not turn over? or does it start then die immediately?

Try to start car and nothing happens. replaced


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.

Abs light flashing sometimes, engine not starting sometimes


Are you absolutely sure it is the ABS light that is flashing?

Also, to confirm descriptions, when you state that when you try to turn it back on you get "nothing, doesn't even crank" are you saying there is no click for the starter relay, no starter engagement, and the engine doesn't spin over?

Your description of the noise when you turn the truck off sounds a bit like the sound a muffled backfire might make. Maybe the truck is running really right, but that wouldn't explain the ABS light flashing. It could explain the Check Engine Light (CEL) flashing as running rich enough to backfire would be an emissions issue which would cause a flashing CEL.

Clicking noise...car won't start


well if when turning the the key and you get a flashing dash lights that tells me that your ignition module is bad. i would also check the connections under the dash you could have a shoryt or a few loose wires.
