The break safty switch could be mixed up with the break safty switch.If the car will start without you steping on the break,the wires are mixed up in the harness or the car was put together with the break safty switch on the gas insted of the break.

2001 Sebring Wont start unless gas pedal pressed down. Just keeps turning over until I press the gas with the key turned then it starts. Check engine light is on.


First, go to AutoZone, Big A or any chain autoparts store, most have free CEL code reading, that will tip you off in the right direction.

Sounds like you have a EVAP issue, and the fuel system is losing fuel pressure, so when you press the gas, you are calling for more fuel allowing it to pressurize faster. Instead on quickly turning the key on, turn it to ACC (Lights and chime) wait 5 sec, then try to start. Most cars will start the fuel pump and pressurize the system for a quick start.

Also check if you smell gas around the car.

Have to press gas pedal to get engine to turn over


Pedal pressing has nothing to do with it. You problably have a bad starter or battery. Check your connections too.

Pontiac firebird 1994 v6 wont turn over unless gas pedal is pressed i just changed fuel filter. what could this be?


When you say won't turn over, do you mean that in order for the starter to engage you must press the gas pedal? Or do you mean that the vehicle will only fire and run once the gas pedal is pressed?

After I know that I can better answer your question

1988 22r pickup have to pump the gas now before starting 15 to 20 times. i didnt use to have to pump the gas before every start if it sits more than 10 hours it wont start unless i start pumping the gas...


Seems like the choke is not turning on. The 22r uses a carb if I'm not mistaken. pump it a couple of times then try pressing the pedal completely down before trying to start it. Then press the pedal half way down. the point is to set the choke when you press the pedal all the way down.

My '85 chev k20 wont start unless i press the gas, then runs perfect


It probably has a carburetor. You have to press the accelerator to set the choke. Sometimes, when it is cold, you have to press several times to spray gas into the engine in order for it to start. This is normal for a car with no fuel injection.
