The way this car was made is for this problem to ONLY be fixed by the dealer! No other repair shop just cost me $700+ dollars. There are no other solutions. Sorry.The dealer will say it's a cluster.It's because of the built in security system, and no it can be removed.

SOURCE: 2000 oldsmobile intrique will not start

If your battery terminals aren't loose or corroded, and your battery is good- and obviously, you starter is okay, and it wasn't jammed in the ring gear--- 1. Automatic transaxle not in park. 2. Broken, loose or disconnected wires in the starting circuit. Inspect all wires and connectors at the battery, starter solenoid and ignition switch. ( on steering column) 3. Faulty ignition switch. 4. Engine seized. Try to turn the crankshaft with a socket and breaker bar.
Hope this helps.

The click you hear is the starter relay. Check for continuity thru relay with battery negative cable disconnected and switch in start position. If no continuity, it probably has burned contacts. Sometimes these can be taken apart and contacts filed/sanded cleaned.

SOURCE: Intermittent starter not cranking engine.

Neutral safety switch is possible, also ignition switch. I'd clean both ends of battery cables for starters (no pun) thoroughly. The bottom connections are exposed to grease and road grime, also connections at solenoid. Clean them with good wire brush

2002 chevy impala won't start if I jump starter

Is the security light on or flashing ?
The yellow wire goes from the key switch to the neutral safety switch, then to the starter. So bypassing the neutral safety would make the starter crank the engine, but would have nothing to do with the rest of the engine.

Mini van wont start battary charged new altanator and starter all wires are grounded

Do you mean it won't start, or won't crank.
You should have a neutral safety switch between the key switch and the starter to prevent you from cranking the engine in drive or reverse.
A defective switch would keep the engine from cranking.
A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter on the wire from the key switch and go from there.

Have an Oldsmobile 1997 Achieva security light stays on and won't everyhing but still won't start , would like to know would the Pro VATS Full Bypass work on it.

If the security light is on, then you have a failed antitheft system. This light is only for this. If you bypass the system, your car will work perfectly again.

Check the ignition switch connector. Check for 12v on the start circuit with the ignition in the start position. Check neutral safety switch connector. Check for 12v in and out of the N/S switch when the gear selector is in neutral or park and the ignition is in the start position. If you have 12v there check at the small terminal on the starter solenoid. If you find 12v there and on the big terminal there would appear to be a starter problem.

Engine wont turn over, put new starter in, think its the neutral safety switch

Check for 12v --power - to the small wire on the start solenoid on the starter with someone turning the key to start.
If there is no power to that wire--yes could be your neutral switch at fault,
Did you try start in neutral ? with brakes on off-course!
If it does start then it is your neutral switch.
