1988 Trans Am will not start when ignition is turned all the way.


Take a test light to the small wire on the starter and have someone turn it to the start position. If the light lights up and the engine doesn't turn over, I would suspect the starter itself. If the test light doesn't light, try it in neutral and repeat test. If it still doesn't light up, it may be the PRNDL switch or the ignition switch itself.

2009 HHR Standard (not automatic) Key Stuck in Ignition


FYI this is now a free dealer fix--Service Bulletin--not a recall. chevy sent letters reregarding issue. Mine was the lock cylinder housing was faulty, the piece that holds the springs to the pieces in for the key shape poped out. temp fix is you can unplug wiring harness under steer wheel to disable the car and remote will still lock door and alarm still works. Of course mine went out on a saturday afternoon. you can remove the lock cylinder yourself and take to locksmith, they can fix the cylinder probably for under 10 bucks. i luv it a 16000 car stuck because 1/8" by 1/2" piece of metal comes loose.

1990 7.3 ford diesel wont shut down


You need to determine if the problem is in the ignition switch or the fuel shut off solenoid in the Injector pump. As you stand in front of the truck facing the engine, the wire that goes to the FRONT connector on the DRIVERS side top of the injector pump will be the shut off solenoid.

turn the key to "run" and then disconeect that wire, if it "clicks' then the problem is most likely the ignition switch. If it doesn't then run a jumper wire from the positive post of a bettery to the connection. If it clicks then the problem is the ignition switch, If it doesn't, then the solenoid has failed. the fuel shut off solenoid is available and not hard to change. Just be sure to pay attention to to the spring and how it is assembled. You can purchase the fuel shut off solenoid from mid west fuel injection, there may be other places but I know they have it. Ignition switch should be available form most any auot parts store.

For a while my 95 buick lesabre would start and cut off on me mid drive; hot, cold, full speed to not fast at all. now the car wont start. i have changed the starter, altinator, bat, plugs and wires,...


Just because you hear the fuel pump running doesn't mean the fuel pressure is correct, put a fuel pressure gauge on the car, 41-47 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch)Position the ignition switch and the A/C system in theoff position. Install a fuel pressure gauge to the vehicles fuel rail or fuel pressure test port.Confirm that no leaks are present, and visually verify the PSI reading on the gauge with the ignition in the on position.

Nope the tumblers in the ignition cylender are worn and bent causing the key to be stuck. Ask any locksmith and they will agree

How to reset change oil sign


I believe you turn the ignition to the on position (engine not running)and fully depress the gas pedal to the floor 5 times within 10 seconds. Sometimes you have to start the procedure over if it doesn't work the first time. Make sure you smoothly press the pedal all the way down and come all the way up each time. You should then hear a audible ding letting you know it reset.

I have a 1982 lincoln mk v. It wont start. I replaced the Ignition spark module and the coil . I even used starting fluid to see if the problem was fuel. But it still wont start.Please help.


Make sure it is not firing.Since you installed the ignition module,the plugs may be fouled out by fuel.If so,replace the spark plugs,and it will start.If there is no spark,the stater in the distributor will be the most likely problem.The stater is the other part that goes out,if the ignition module doesn`t.I hope this helps,let me know if I can help you any more.
