Sounds like you have a bad ignition immobilizer or maybe the chip in the key is going bad. Did you try using your spare key to the car?

Car will turn over or start


Hi Kay, I'm glad to help! Kay, if you turn the key on and nothing happens at all. In other words: You do not here the engine turning over and sometimes the dash lights and guages do not work. Here's your most likely problem. Your vehicle has what they call a WIN Module which is the same thing as an old style Ignition Switch. When the WIN goes bad it's shuts everything down and nothing happens when you turn the ket to the start position. This WIN will need to be replace at the dealership because they will need to program the WIN and then program the KEYs to the new WIN. NOTE: DO NOT be alarmed if the tell you that you need new keys because they want program to the new WIN, sometimes this happens in fact so often that the manufacture started sending NEW KEYS with the WIN, But, only on some year models. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Kay.

Turn key and just a loud click starter not turning but I noticed when key is in start position all power seems to go out dash lights radieo dome everything goes out until key is returned to run pos.


Everything is supposed to go off in the start position. You would have power to the engine computer and other components to start.
If the engine is not locked up, it could be the starter or a bad connection with one of the battery cables.

I have a 1989 Toyota Corolla DLX 4dr, fwd. The car was running and starting fine (drove it to the store this morning) and when I go to move it later to let my roommates out of the driveway, the car wont...


Battery very weak
Alternator not working
Bad connections at battery posts, or bad connections on ground cable

If you can jump the car to start it, and it will stay running, take it to Advance Auto, Auto Zone, O'Reilly's, etc and have them test your battery/alternator.

92 plymouth voyager wont start and nothing work the windows wont go down the lock and unlock button does nothing idk what the problem is i had the battery tested and the battery is fine what would cause...


Nothing works? How about the headlights, do they work? If yes, then start checking all fuses in the Power Distribution Center or Box under the hood. If no, then look for a bad maxi-fuse in the PDC, and check for a bad fusible link between the battery and the PDC. The battery positive cable goes to the starter, but a pigtail lead off the positive would go to the PDC, to distribute power to all the various circuits on the car.
When you turn the key to on, does the dash light up? If yes, at least power is getting to, and going through the ignition switch. One could then check for power on the starter solenoid wire when key was held in crank or start position.
If nothing when turning key to on-no dash lights, nothing-then check for an ignition fuse in the PDC. If fuse is good check for power being available at the ignition switch connector. If no power there, check wiring between PDC and the ignition switch-if power is up to the switch, but nothing happens with key on, no dash or warning lights, then could have a bad ignition switch.
It just sounds like a maxi-fuse has blown, or a bad fusible link. Good luck.

Electrical problems


Same thing is happening right now on a 2002 Monte Carlo. When the key is simply turned to ON, all of the lights on the dash starts blinking rapidly. When I attempt to turn the car over, there is no CLICK or anything from the engine - nada. Ignition turns and the dash goes dark, as if it wants to TRY to start - but nothing happens.
But, when I press the brake pedal (and the key is just sitting in the ON position), all of the blinking lights stops flashing and just stay lit. Therefore, I changed the brake switch, thinking it might make a huge difference. Didn't really help at all. When the key is turned, you can hear the fuel pump engage and everything seems to be ready to go. But, the car won't start (it will only start when it feels like it)...hit and miss, pretty much.
Does anyone know the TRUE solution to this issue? Does the ignition need to be replaced in order to get this car to crank over

Check the ignition switch steering in column, it goes bad also over time, you cant fix or rebuilt it and its expensive unit, will have to buy a new unit or one from a junk yard, assuming the battery has a good charge and new starter. try to play with the ignition switch by turning the key back and forth many times and see if you get some kind of contact to the dash light or starter while everything is connected.

Dash lights up when key is on go to start it and does not start


Connection at battery is loose. Happens all the time. those terminals that bolt to pos and neg shouldn't move will all your might trying to turn it with your hand. If they do then that's the problem.
