SOURCE: 2002 chevy malibu won't start

Does the starter make any noise or click when you turn the key to start? If it does not, chk. battery could be bad, and battery cables could be loose or corroded. If there good and clean and battery is good try tapping starter see if it will turn and start if it does or still clicks starter bad. It could be ignition switch if it does nothing at all, but if it clicks most likely its starter.

SOURCE: ignition switch on a 2002 chevy trailblazer

under the steering column, there are three or four little holes in the plastic covering. If you look inside, one of them (the one on the right side toward the dash) there is a brass pin inside. This is the pin to release the key. As far as the key not turning, I have had the same problem. The first time I replaced the ignition switch and that solved the problem. However, this makes no sense because the ignition switch has nothing to do with the tumbler being locked. GMC thinks that my anti theft system, which is inside the ignition cylinder is the problem. By removing the ignition switch, it reset the pass lock anti-theft system and temporarily fixed the problem. So, try removing the ignition switch and then plugging it back in. If that doesn't work, your in the same boat as I am, and we may both need new ignition cylinders.

Probably due for a trans service--which is flushing the trans and replacing the trans fluid and filter.

You need a new ignition lock with transponder chip and key with transponder chip. Then you need to pair them. You can either do this at a dealership, or you can disconnect the battery for 4 hours, put the ignition key in the ignition but not turned on, connect the battery, wait 15 minutes for the system to reset and pair and then cross your fingers.

The first thing I would do is clean your battery connections very good. you may have to remove the plastic covers off the cable ends to get them cleaned good. Also make sure you get the connection bolts tight.

It sounds like your ignition module is starting to go bad. As it gets worse it will be harder and harder to start, until it doesn't start at all. Your crankshaft sensor could also be going bad. Hope this helps.

There is a sensor that the fan is connected to that is plugged into the engine block that senses the temperature. Maybe the wire is broken. Trace all the wires from the fan to wherever they are connected and find the one that is not attached or cracked or shorting. That sensor may also be bad.

Change starter on 2002 tahoe now motor wont start


If you had battery unhooked and assuming that it is turning over try this Put your key in turn it on dont start wait 10 mins remove key wait 10 seconds repeat this a total of 3 times. If that dont work try a different key do the same thing. This relearns your key to the ignition it started with Gm cars and trucks from 1999 to to 2006. It is a big problem but there is no recall that I know of. If that dont work a dealer needs to probably replace and reprogram your ignition switch and keys
