The first thing to do is check the brake lights, if they don't work find out why and repair them, the brake light circuit powers the park lock solenoid.

Dodge jouney wont go into neutral or start battery is good


Sounds like it may be a flakey shift position indicator switch. The switch tells the ignition when the transmission is in park. Vehicle is designed to not start unless transmission is in park so if the switch is malfunctioning the ignition may not get the signal that it is in park.

Have 98 grandam no power at purple wire at starter


Purple wire runs from Park/Neutral position switch (or clutch engage switch M/T transmission) straight to the starter solenoid. First, assuming 60A ignition switch fuse under the hood in the power distribution center good, check for 12V at YEL wire (from ignition switch) at the switch when ignition moved to START position. If 12V present at YEL, but absent at PPL (also in START position), replace the Park/Neutral switch. If no voltage present at YEL wire then must verify 12V at RED (242) to ignition switch next. If present replace ignition switch. Hope this helps.

Battery fully charged, car wont start, cant remove key, 2004 cadillac cts


There is a magnetic switch on the 'park' position. The car only starts or releases the key in 'park' is enabled. Maybe this switch is not working! Try to replace it!

1996 Pathfinder Auto. Wont start. Turn ignition key , all lights on dash, headlights OK, hear a click. Spoke to mechanic who said to hold ignition on whilst moving auto lever. Did this and car eventually...


You need to adjust the park neutral saftey switch. the problem you are having is the truck thinks the it is not in Park so the truck will not start unless it is all the way in park. Take the keu turn half way and move shifter to neutral and see if it starts. Then I cam tell you how to adjust it.

When i turn the key to start the truck upit turns to run but wont go to start, it turns all the way but doesnt start


Not much to go on---but I'll try here.

Ok first thing check to see if truck is in park---sometimes it may be in park but the park switch will not start truck unless the switch is depressed.

try putting truck in neutral with foot on pedal to start truck-----if starts the problem is with the switch.

If not, then you have a ignition switch problem---there is an ignition switch box under the dash on topside of steering column with has adjustment screws mounted to column.

loosen screws and slide ignition box toward the steering wheel to achieve the start position of the ignition switch box to start truck.

Car ignition wont start or turn


Could be a bad lock cylinder or broken ignition switch (under the dash on top of the steering column). If you disconnect the switch from the control rod that comes from the cylinder and the cylinder turns you need a new switch.
