    Thanks, How hard is it for a novice to change this "lock" out?

    Any special tools required?

    Can it be done from the interior?

It could be caused by a problem with the ignition lock cylinder and the sub assemblys,especially if the two problems occured at the same time or relativley close to each other.

    Is the lock cylinder on the steering column or in the dash?

Townace won't start!!! Help!!!

First thing I would do is make sure the batter cables are secure and tight to the battery post and make sure the red cable is to the + side of the battery and black is on the - side of the battery. They need to be tight and snug in order to put out the amps needed to start the car. YOu can also put a trickle charger on the battery over night at the 2 amp setting and make sure it is charged up. I would guess one of those problems is what is causing you your grief.

Good luck

06 malibu. 2.2 starter wont engage and steering wheel wont lock.

You can't even hope to diagnose this type problem without knowing how it works . The starting system is all computer controlled ,turning the key to the start position sends a voltage signal to a control module . The BCM or PCM ,the module will send a message to the PCM on GMLAN serial data buss , the PCM will energize a relay by suppling a ground which will send B+ voltage to the solenoid on the starter . The PCM will do that if it see the transmission is in park or neutral and not anti-theft system problem . Hooking up a factory scan tool is the first step in diagnosing this . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

2005 Altima won't start, hear clicking sound coming from fuse box,key stuck in ingintion,won;t turn over,tried to jump start.

the clicking that you hear is coming from the starter relay. sounds like your ignition starter switch or ignition lock cylinder is bad.

I hooked my car battery up backwards on my 05 Toyota corolla and now it won't even try to turn over when i try to start it. The battery is not the problem.

  • When you hooked the battery up backwards you blew the 100Amp main fuse. You have two fuse boxes. One under the hood and one under the steering wheel. i recommend a look at the fuses in general. Which that 100 Amp fuse may bring some life back to the car there could be some more stuff to look at depending on how much (if) any damage was done.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

2005 sedona won't start all of a sudden. Doesn't make a sound except for a tiny whirring sound like the feul injectors. Replaced starter...still won't start. checked all fuses...they are good....

you could just have dead cell in the battery which isn't getting enough amps to the starter,, have the battery LOAD checked,, that will tell you if the battery is actually good, just because it registers 12 volts isn't necessarily an indication that the required amps are present.

The car won't start; lights, ac, radio etc come on but car won't turn over or even click; checked battery cables; put different battery in; still won't start

Check the starter and the starter relay or fuse. A client of mines car was doing the same thing, it ended up being two issues, the starter not working anymore, and a relay that was bad. If I am not mistaken everything should be labeled in the fuse box under the hood and will tell you where the fuse/ relay is for your vehicle
