This happened to me it was the starter. look up how to perform a bench test this will solve all your problems.

first do some checks. Step 1- find your gas line and look for the nipple to check if you have fuel pressure. "have a friend crank the engine while you push down the nipple: beware gas will shoot out:" hold for a few seconds to make sure its steady.

step 2- if there is gas pressure move over to your park plug boot. UN plug a boot from the spark plug and using a voltage meter check for a current. if there is current awesome, if not check the integrity of your wires, rotor cap and rotor (cheap fixes)

step 3- check your starter, un-install it the starter and or hot wire it to see if it activates (new starters look on ebay (30-80$) this will start to go around 170k miles or so. only takes some jacks and a jack stand to uninstall and replace.

hope this helps you out :) let me know if it doesn't ill keep looking for you

Starting problem


Sounds like the check valve in the fuel pump has failed.
You would need to have the fuel pressure checked before and after cranking the engine to verify. The check valve keeps the fuel pressure from draining back into the tank when the engine is off.

2005 ignition switch


Good day;
The following is the removal of the switch
1. remove the steering column trim covers.
2. disconnect the ignition switch harness connector.
3. turn the switch to the run position

IMPORTANT THE IGNITION SWITCH MUST BE IN THE RUN POSITION DURING REMOVAL IN ORDER TO AVOID DAMAGE TO THE IGNITION SWITCH.

4. remove the switch screws
5. remove the ignition switch from the steering column

if the ignition switch is replaced and a learn procedure is not performed the engine will crank but not start or will start and stall immediately.

30 minute learn procedure
1. turn ON the ignition with the engine OFF
2. attempt to start the engine then release the key to ON. the vehicle will not start
3. observe the SECURITY telltale. after approx 10 min the telltale will turn OFF
4. turn OFF the ignition and wait 5 seconds
5 repeat steps 1-4 two more times for a total of 3 cycles (30 min) the vehicle is now ready to relearn the PASSLOCK sensor data code and or passwords on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK.

IMPORTANT: THE VEHICLE LEARNS THE PASSLOCK SENSOR DATA CODE AND OR PASSWORD ON THE NEXT IGNITION SWITCH TRANSITION FROM OFF TO CRANK YOU MUST TURN THE IGNITION OFF BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO START THE VEHICLE.

6.start the vehicle the vehicle has now learned the passlock and or password
7. if you have a scan tool clear any codes if needed or disconnect the battery for 30 sec. the history DTC will self clear after 100 ignition cycles.

hope this helps

Cheers
