We'll go from the more obvious to more complex:
- Is the battery charged
-are battery terminals clean
- are battery cables tight on ALL connections, including starter, ground
- Do the lights and accessories come on
- when ignition switch is turned to start, is there a clicking sound (this would be the starter solenoid engaging)
-Does vehicle have a security system that when engaged prevents it to start
- Did this problem exist before or did it just appear abruptly.
-check fuses
-put shifter lever in N -try to start( possible bad neutral safety switch)

Simple, free and doesn't hurt anything; Use ONLY your car's ignition key in the ignition - in other words, have NO other keys attached to the ignition key while in use.I had this same problem, increasingly worse (as I added keys to my car key ring). Finally, I seperated my ignition key from my other keys, and so far, no anti Theft problems!

Won't start how ? When you turn the key to the start position does the engine spin or nothing happens ? no crank no start ! Or when you turn the key to start position the engine spins but the engine doesn't start an run ? crank no start !

When I turn the key nothing happens. No clicks, no crank. All of the lights work properly. No dimming or turning off when I try to start. This has happened a few times before. The first time I put the car...

Ignition switch....the electrical ignition switch. To verify, find the thick white wire in the harness coming from the switch and do two things; first, check for power at this wire, when you switch the key position to start. If nothing, power the wire momentarily with the key in the run position, and your car should start.

Key turns to "start" position. Nothing happens, key doesn't spring back to "run".

Sounds like the link between the lock cylinder and the switch is broke.

Wouldn't start. Turned ignition switch. Nothing happened. Interior lights & headlights worked.tried 2 hours later & car started.

Does your security light flash if you turn your key to the 'on' position? If so, this is a Passlock problem. It should restart after 10 minutes. Here`s a possible solution that has worked for me. Have a new key cut from origional key or best condition key you have. Buy some Electronic cleaner and spray lots into the lock cylinder. Then, put your key in the ignition and turn from off to on position several times (5 to 10 times quickly). Then remove your key and spray again and repeat key turning. Do this several times. I don`t recomend any spray that is oil based. I no longer have issues with my Passlock system and I have almost 500 000Kms on my Impala.
