It sounds like the wiring to the key was rerouted to the button. Does it come with the push button as standard, or was it installed @ a later date?

Thank you for contacting Fixya. Does this help? Let us know.

SOURCE: my ford f150 wont start, battery is good, have a

On the firewall is the starter motor relay. There are 2 large battery sized cables to it, and 1 smaller ( 16 AWG ) wire that is orange or orange with a stripe ( forget the color, want to say white or tan ).

When you turn the key to the start position, check the smaller gauge wire for +12 V. The case should be ground. If you do not get +12 on the orange wire, try starting the truck in neutral ( apply the parking brake, chock the wheel, etc normal safety precautions ). Test for +12 V at the small wire. This is the output of the DTR ( Digital Transmission Range ) sensor or in common terms the Neutral switch. The start position on the ign switch runs through the DTR to the starter motor relay coil.
If you have a stick, the DTR is replaced by the Clutch Pedal Position Switch ( clutch must be pushed in to start ).
If you have power to this ( at the times the truck won't start ) next is to check the both battery cable ends to see if they are corroded and making intermittent contact ( not probable but possible ).

What other motor will work in a 2000 chevy s10 2.2 4cy i like to stay 4cy

The days of switching engines without major modifications to the powertrain computer and engine harness are long over.
I don't think there is even an alternative from GM for the 2.2L. The only other engine choice for the s10 was a v6 engine, and that would require major modification for your truck, the computer and harness for one.
Best to replace an engine today with the exact same engine, and from the same year to ensure that all electrical connectors are the same and don't need changing, and that parts will match and bolt up the same. An engine swap is pretty easy, but a different engine may require hours of modifying wiring, connectors, parts, etc. Only a fanatic or die-hard modder would attempt it.

Tranny wont go in any gear. Tranny mod,saftey switch ?

No if no gear will engage then the transmission has failed and will need to be rebuilt, there is nothing else that causes this, there is no such thing as a "Safety Switch" for the transmission

2000 diesel ram 3500 starter will not turn engine 20% of starts. After clicking key a few times, starter will turn. Starter was replaced and same thing happens. Is there something else in the start circuit...

relays are common on dodges, go in fuse box, pick another one such as horn,a/c one that you dont need to run but know is good and swap it out. try that, it could be the ign. switch too, neutral saftey switch on a auto, and clutch safety switch on a manual. make sure nothings jammed underneith clutch pedal also and your pushing it all the way down. check for dirty battery connections to. good luck!

I have a 2004 jeep liberty and i put the key in and it will not turn. the dome lights work and everything else but i cant turn the key at all!! the steering wheel is not even locked nor pushing the brakes...

try turning the steering wheel to the left a little then to the right keeping steady pressure on the key . it also might be the saftey nutural switch sticking mounted on the steering colume under the dash.

My 1998 s10 2.2 truck will not start

-If the starter is only clicking or it is acting as if the clutch pedal was never pushed down- it is either one two things, (1) the click, click sound may be due to a bad battery connection or bad wire contact to the starter motor. (2) the neutral saftey switch which is attached to the clutch master cylinder on the inside of the vehicle, (under the dash) is deffective or needs adjusting-it is easier to simply replace it., no complex tools are needed for either repair, just a voltmeter to check wire connections on the battery to starter motor, or a small screwdriver driven socket to remove the screws holding the lower part of the dash together (below the steering column)- I hope this was helpful, I ran into a lot of problems after I swapped an engine and rebuilt the transmission on my 98 s10 but I eventually worked most of the problems out.
