Check the ground wires on the negative post to the engine block and to the body. Something may be broken or corroded. Check the connections to the starter relay at the end of the positive cable. Look at the fusible links (thin wires) from that same connection going into the wiring harnesses for anything broken or melted.

HI, I'm reading your problem,
Let me explain something about your car.

2005 Ford Taurus, The key on that car has Chip inside of the key and receiver on the ignition switch,
Check if the key you are trying to use is Black and has a plastic head.
If not you need a key with that characteristics.
But if you have the right key, Remenber if you had drop on the floor, or hit with something,
Because some times they come damaged, with insignificat thins.
Remenber if you left the key close to a magnets like speakers.

If nothing aply at your case, you need to call a place Aloha Smith, they have the computer to program or reprogarm your key. IF not you can't start your car.

OK.. I hope this information work for you.

Thank's for submit yous question on fixya.com

SOURCE: 1990 ford f-150 nothing happens when ignition is turned on

Solenoid was not mentioned as replaced.

If it was not part of new starter...that's the culprit.

Ignition switch (smaller wire) activates the solenoid (heavier wire) which in turn activates the (high current) starter.

Drove to the store,turned off the car,5 mins later tried to start it and all it does is crank and crank but wont start.NEVER had a starting prob. before! alternator is good,battery is good,starter is...


Yes, they can. With no warning whatsoever, in some cases. Do you not hear it turn on for a couple seconds with key on? Try some starting fluid sprayed into the engine, then crank it. If it fires up and runs a few seconds, you know it is a gas problem.
The definitive test for a bad pump is to check for power on the pump wire at the gas tank connector, when the engine is cranking over. If power there and no pump, the pump is bad. If no power getting to the pump when cranking, the pump circuit needs checked-check the fuel pump fuse, there is also a fuel pump relay under the hood.

With or without the fob, you should get lights. Check the installation and the battery voltage between the engine metalwork and fuses.

Electrical problems


Same thing is happening right now on a 2002 Monte Carlo. When the key is simply turned to ON, all of the lights on the dash starts blinking rapidly. When I attempt to turn the car over, there is no CLICK or anything from the engine - nada. Ignition turns and the dash goes dark, as if it wants to TRY to start - but nothing happens.
But, when I press the brake pedal (and the key is just sitting in the ON position), all of the blinking lights stops flashing and just stay lit. Therefore, I changed the brake switch, thinking it might make a huge difference. Didn't really help at all. When the key is turned, you can hear the fuel pump engage and everything seems to be ready to go. But, the car won't start (it will only start when it feels like it)...hit and miss, pretty much.
Does anyone know the TRUE solution to this issue? Does the ignition need to be replaced in order to get this car to crank over

Car wont stsrt


will the engine crank when you turn the key, and will not start or does nothing happen when key is turned on. If nothing happens when you turn the key, you may have an dead battery. if it will crank and not start, may not be getting fuel or the engine isnt fireing. Check fuel first, then check to see if it the spark plugs are getting fire.

1985 3.8 ford thunderbird have replaced plugs cap module on dist checked timing new fuel pump and still wont crank,any ideas?thanks


If you can't hear hum from fuel pump when key turned to on only, not start, check behind side cover panel in trunk on drivers side, for inertia switch. Has a button on top or side, push it in to reset. Pretty sure drivers side, but if not there, check other side (passenger) in trunk area, behind side panel.

1989 Thunderbird won't start.


Ignition switch is more likely. If it's consistently making contact in the same position every time, the relay sounds like its working. As far as the EEC, I honestly don't know for sure but it doesn't sound like it. All the best!

Car wont start


If you are getting spark to the plugs, (and assuming nothing has happened to screw up the timing of the spark), the only thing that would cause the car not to start is that you are not getting fuel into the cylinders. You can check this by squirting some ether into the air intake of the engine. You can get some start spray at an auto parts store.
