Sounds like the switch is worn out. Happens a lot, it's probably the most used part of the car.

SOURCE: 06 jeep commander wont crank. No interior lights,

Check your battery cables. Remove them and clean the contacts, if the ends are replacements take them apart and clean. Use a wire brush or sand paper. Make sure you remove the negative first and reinstall it last. Also check the battery and fuse links. Your problem is in there some where the battery, cable ends, cables, or a fuse link. If still no start let me know the results and we can go from there if need be.

A second key was cut at a lock smith but the vehicle will not start


if the key turns and finds the spring loaded start position, fully
then the key is good.

if it wont crank , it can not start, short of being push started, with manually tranny , unstated transmission, makes my comments on the key line , useless.

1998 chevy asto van wont crank or turn over


Turn the headlights on and watch them while the key is turned to start. If the lights go out, one of your cables or connections at battery or starter is not good. If lights dim a lot but stay on, possibly a bad starter, it needs testing. If lights aren't affected by cranking position, turn lights off, pull the small wire off the starter solenoid, hook up a test light to ground and to the solenoid wire. Light should come on when key is held in crank. If it does, likely a bad starter solenoid. If no light, then the start circuit from ignition switch to starter solenoid is not working. Check for power out of ignition switch on the start wire with key in crank, to begin with. If powered, switch is good, need to check if neutral safety switch is good, and then check or swap in a new starter relay.
Post back with any results.
Good luck.

My 2007 dodge caliber wont start


You are dealing with 2 possible problem. The ignition switch,or the alarm, If you have a alarm problem the vehicle will crank then in 2 seconds shut down,this is because the key is recognized,now if this is the problem roll down a window and disconnect the negative battery terminal,put the key in the ignition but in the off position.After 5 minutes reconnect the battery and turn the ignition on but dont crank the engine leave for 1 minute. Then see if that resolved the issue.Now if its an ignition switch problem crank the engine and slowly let it go.try to keep the key in the position where it stays running. By the way there is a campaign of a recall dealing with a TIPM software update Re-configure ,anti-theft system. Customer satisfaction notice G42. You will have to see the dealer for this campaign.

Jeep wont start, engine goes to turn over but wont go all the way


Ok...what you need to determine next is if the fuel pump is operating. Turn the key to the on position and have someone listen at the tank. If you can't hear it, it's not on. (that can be pump relay, pump or sometimes asd relay) to quick check relays see if you can feel each click when the key is turned on. If you can get the pump to run by banging on the tank bottom go no further and replace the pump. Most relays are the exact same and can be interchanged as well (except abs relay)
If the pump is coming on the next item to check is the crank position sensor. You will need a digital multi-meter and a manual for the test, but if you shoot some carb cleaner into the intake and the engine starts (do while cranking) likely it is OK and then back to the pump or get a chiltons manual and a meter and do complete testing. Battery needs to be fully charged or any tests are invalid.

Car wont start. when key is turned i get weird clicks.


You said you checked your battery, did you check volts and amps? It's possible that your battery is not functioning properly. You may need a new one. Does it start if you try to jumpstart it?
