Possibly bad ignition switch lock, or bad shifter interlock solenoid.

SOURCE: 1996 Chevy Blazer battery draining/won't start

What normally you have to look for is that your belt is running properly because your car might be running a lot more off the battery and not so much of f the alternator, but normally if the alternators bad it will drain the battery even if the cars not running.. Yes your first thing you would want to do is check the wiring and al that just because thats cheap and easy but most likley you wanna get the altenator tested...you can get that done at advance auto.. please rate me if you get a chance and if you have any other questions just let me know ill check up on your problem..

Thanks,
Steve

SOURCE: Key stuck, won't turn, won't shift...replace ignition switch?

Try to shift your key in either direction while try to turn your steering in left and right direction. May be its steering lock which is attached to your ignition key preventing shifting of key. If not, then its obviously your ignition that has gone.
If you decide to change ignition then as a last try Dip your key in lubricating oil and then insert in ignition to turn it on. May be it can help.

Have him put in a new one, sounds like this one is defective. A bad starter solenoid will drain your battery when car is shut off.

After new battery put in, battery is dead in a few days.


When you shut down the car some circuit in the car is using current at an excessive rate so as to drain the battery. To repair you need to locate the source of drain. You can do this by connecting an ammeter to the car battery and while the car is turned off monitor the amperage reading. You will see a draw. Then pull fuses, one at a time, till you see the drain virtually disappear. Now you have identified the circuit that is responsible for draining your battery. If you cannot fix it, at least you know where the hassle is and you can always pull that fuse when you leave the car unattended for a few days so that the battery is not drained. If getting to the fuse is a hassle you can always replace the fuse with some wiring and a switch that you place in the glove box and all you do is turn the switch off when you remove the key. Presto - cheap fix!!!!!!

Battery being drained over night


Check to be sure that your hood light is turning off when you close the hood. Seriously. (Common problem.)
Remove the bulb from the hood light to see if the problem persists. If the battery no longer drains, replace the hood light assembly.
Also, run the car for a short while, then turn the car off. Leave the car off for an hour, then feel the back of the alternator. If it is hot, the diodes are bad in the alternator.

Postive battery cable very hot


Turn off and check positive cable for wear, if the cables outer covering is damaged, it can short to the chassis or other metal parts of the car.. and cause the cable to heat up. Leave it in that sate long enough and it will eventually melt. or in extreme cases cause a fire. If you find any damage, then replace said cable immediately

My Car keys freqently get stuck in the ignition what is the problem?


Hi, The key that you have cut is too rough and needs to be filed abit.
To get the key out of the lock spray some lubricant in and wiggle it till it comes out. DW40 or Graphite lube is good. Good luck

2000 buick regal key gets stuck and car will not turn over


The stuck key could be the following. There is a cable that runs from the gear shifter to the ignition switch. Jiggle the shifter in park and simultaneously gently move the key to off and pull the key out. The key in and not fully turned to off will drain the battery.

I have a 2001 oldsmobile sihouette I disconnected negative battery post for ten min then put back then I parked van now when I go to start it securety lock is on and I can't start car and it reads cal...


you have to do that cycle 3 times,battery needs to fully charged.
Hood to stay closed,doors also(roll down the drivers window)
Kill the DRL headlights if possible(try putting the E-brake on)
Crank and leave key on,10 min or till light goes out,then key off,,no need to wait 5 min here,crank again.leave key on,,,,,3 times.
By the way,disconnecting the battery in that vehicle will not do anything like clear codes or memory,may need the radio code in the owners manual also.

My car is stuck in anti theft mode and I cant get my car to start


The problem is your Vats security system. This causes the car to either "not start" or "shut down" while running. (depending on the system) If the security light flashes, i guarantee that this is what the problem is. 1st trick, turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start.
Cheap fix:
----- http://vats.likeabigdog.com/
----- Bypassing the key
Never worry again fix:
----- http://newrockies.ca?ap_id=judd0081
----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey **** system out of your car all together. Good info on both sites
