Make sure your key is not worn out, spray a little lubricant in key cylinder and turn on and off. If it doesn't free up then you will most likely need to have key cylinder replaced.

SOURCE: 96 NISSAN MAXIMA SHUTS OFF UPON DECELLERATION OR WHEN STOPPED

Check to see if the floor on the passanger side is wet. If so, than your A/C drain clogged up and your ECM/computer got flodded by water causing all sorts of funky stuff happening. Right next to the gas pedal is a small cover attached to the computer. It has a clip in it. Remove the clip and tug on the cover. Look at the top of the computer to see if its rusted up. Remove the other side cover also, which is on passanger side floor next to your left foot(if you sitting in passenger seat). and check other side of ECM/computer. Check the ECM for rust on top.
If ALL of that looks OK, than I would replace the switch,(since you are telling me that the key got VERY hot) that is mounted on the back of the ignition cylinder. Its a white round switch that failes after a while especially car beeing 1996, just think about how many times that ignition has been turned ON/OFF since 1996. The mechanism in the switch failes, causing starting issues and funky electrical issues.
Does the car have a remote starter installed?? Or didi it have one in the past?? I have seen companies that install them cause some damage to the harnesses on the switch that is mounted to the back of the igniton cylinder. They use "scotch locks" to connect the remote starter and after a while the connection corrode and cause problems too.
Anyways, check the computer for rust first. Than I would install that switch on back of the igniton. You can buy the switch seperately. You dont need the whole ignition assembly/switch only. Switch is pretty cheap (approx $50 ?). Try that and post results. I would feel pretty good about the switch beeing faulty. I have ssen them fail in the past and that's where your power comes into for the starter circuit.(key getting HOT, switch shorting out, making the key hot and starting the car without the key)

Hey there, I would look at the switch on tha back of your ignition. Not the ignition it self, but the switch that's on the back of it. Its white round looking thing about 1 1/2 inches in circumference and it has wires coming out of it. I think that its gone. If you are sure, that your battery and battery connections are OK, than look at that switch. Part is replacable at about $50bucks for the part and than if you can put it in your delf, thsm you will save some money there too. Good luck

SOURCE: 1998 nissan altima gxe -ignition problem

Hi what is happening is that your turn off your car and left the wheels turned to one side and specially if your car is parke in a hill what you have to do is to force the steering wheel to the same direction of your wheels this will free up the ignition switch it is going to be hard let me tell you but it will work and this is why your shift don't work once you have the ignition switch free then your shift will work again

SOURCE: 2002 Altima engine won't start, but key does turn in the ignition

Is there a clicking sound? The first thing that I would check is to make sure that the starter motor is getting voltage. If it is getting voltage then I would say that the motor is bad and needs to be replaced. If it is not getting voltage then it could be a bad fuse, relay, or a bad ground. All of these are probabilities. The last thing that I would check for is a bad ignition switch especially since the accessories come on.

it sounds like the shift lock thinks the car is still in gear check the shift lock solenoid a make sure it's working properly and you may be able to move it to where itis reading that the car is in park if it does try turning the key on off and removing it if it works replace the solenoid

I have a 2001 Bmw 740i and I just replaced the battery and now the car will turn over but won't start and the alarm randomly goes off


It thinks you are stealing it!

You have fallen foul of the anti-theft system!

Number one tip, maintain power when changing batteries with a couple of lengths of wire or jump leads.

Disconnect the battery for 2 hours. Put your key in the ignition, but not on. Reconnect the battery. The ECU will pair the chip in the key and the chip in the ignition lock. The ECU will then release power to the ignition system.

At present the ECU thinks you are trying to steal the car with a key that just happens to fit the lock. Clever stuff eh? Let me know how you get on by clicking COMMENT under my post.

It must be 2 hours to dissipate all power in the car held by electronics.

New battery In mercedes no power


I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

2003 Aurora, left key on and battery went dead. Recharged battery. Won't start. Turn key to on, security light out and check engine light on. Move key to start and nothing, back to on, one minut


Very interesting site here.. regarding your problem. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/
Another thought.. even though you charged the battery, it's not at all uncommon for a car battery to be very damaged by fully discharging. Especially if not new-ish. One or more cells in it may be bad causing the overall voltage to be under normal. This alone can cause the problem you have. I would try jumping it with another car or test the battery to see if it's got at least 12.7 to 12.9 volts when sitting doing nothing. Good luck.

Not the Key but the ignition itself. Replace teh ignition module where the key is inserted to start the vehicle and that should resolve the issue.

Tryed to change the battery in my 2000 Volkswagon Passat


There is a way of running it by putting the spare key in the ignition and turning the ignition on but dont start the car, put the second key in the drivers lock and turn as if you are opening it until you hear 2 beeps, then press the unlock button on the remote while in the door.The car should beep once and flash the indicator lights.Remove the door key and remove the ignition key then lock the car using the remote.Open the car and try the ignition.Some systems lose the memory of the key chip so this may help you but with technology it works for some and not for others.

98 celica battery went dead replaced now it want crank


Try this: Unhook the battery. Reconnect the battery. When the horn starts to beep, cycle the ignition key in the ignition on-off 5 times. This resets the alarm; the cycling of the key. Please advise me if this works for you.
