SOURCE: 97 Geo Metro will not start

IF you are able to jump the vehicle using cables connected to another car then it is a power issue, if the vehicle stays running after starter you can most likely rule out the regulator, it sound like the battery is weak and dieing, it can be strong enough to run the radio without having the power to start the ignition.

How can I start with a screwdriver?


BAD idea. Just get a new key from dealer. You must bring the title, your ID, and they should be able to make a key. Might cost $40 or so, but you won't have ruined a $200 steering column.

Title: What to do if you need a replacement ignition key

Overview:

There are times where you may need a replacement key. This can be the cause of a lost key, a key going bad, upgrading from the non all-in-one key to the all-in-one key.

Please keep in mind that if all keys are lost, there is NO WAY to program a new key to you car and a replacement TWICE module will have to be found with a key, either new (costly) or used and be married to the car via the dealer.

Symptoms:

Need a key, key is giving intermittent "bad key" messages and will not start the car, etc.

Experience Level:

Easy

Tools Needed:

Probably none, or a small tool to take the door off of a key via the hole in the side for the all-in-one key.

Time Needed:

Not much.

Parts Needed:

Key Blank from Dealer about $40 This is cut to your car.
Key Top from Dealer about $40 This is the "key guts"
all-in-one guts from Dealer about $90
all-in-one guts from ebay about $30-$60
key door from dealer for all-in-one key about $15

Procedure:

There are a few cases that can be covered

Case 1: Non All-in-one key replaced by non All-In-One key.

Subcase A: Have a non all-in-one key that is going bad

Solution: The dealer will have a replacement top for the key. Get the top, replace the top of the key and have it reprogrammed for the car. Total cost about $40 + $30.

Subcase B: Replace with all-in-one key because they are neato and / or the other key is lost.

Solution: Order the "Key Blank" from dealer and obtain the guts for the all in one key from ebay or the dealer. Have keys programmed by dealer. Total cost about $35 + $30 + guts cost.

Case 2: All-in-one key replaced by All-In-One key.
Subcase A: Have key but is not working.

Solution: Get guts and have it programmed. Cost about $30 + guts cost.

Subcase B: Lost key, need a new key

Solution: Get Key Blank and guts and have it programmed. Cost about
$35 + $30 + guts cost.

Outcome:

Very nice. Replacing the non all-in-one with the all-in-one dramatically increased the range of the remote. over the banana style remote.

Notes:

- Replace the battery in the guts if you get them off of ebay.
- You have to have all keys and remotes to dealer for programming.
- The guts for the non all-in-one key do not have the remote guts
- The guts for the all-in-one key have the security and remote in one
- The key shaft from the ebay all-in-one key can be discarded

I have a 2005 chevy equinox and when i turn the key, everything comes on when i turn the key but the car will not start however my boyfriend goes under the car ith a screw driver and does something with...


could be the ignition switch, loose or corroded wires to/on the starter assembly (big or small wires), or the solenoid on the starter is bad which is part of the starter assembly and best if replaced all together. Find out from the boyfriend if he is jumping dc+ from the big live wire to the small wire and thus getting power to activate the solenoid (bad wire or switch). If he is just tapping the starter assembly and it activates, internal contacts are shot, and it will quit all together soon. Starters and brake lines are much easier to replace at "your" convenience before there is no option.

Car won't start. its got a hot battery. Turn key, dash lights up but does nothing,not even click. got under car to ckeck starter used screwdriver on selonoid and it turned over fine. turn key switch...


If your car rolls over when you short the selonoid then the possibilities are limited.
The most likely is your neutral safety switch
the others are the ignition switch or damaged wiring.
