The theft system may not be reading key. Remave key and try again. Key or sensor trouble.

SOURCE: turn key all light come

You didnt list the type of car this is, the most common thing that causes this is the starter, i just had a saturn, the customer had the same problem we told her it may be the starter but cant be 100% sure until it actted up, she didnt want to replace it unless we were sure, so we kept and drove the car around for 5 days and finally the last day it didnt start and it was the starter , same problem turn key and nothing no noise and no start, i would have the starter replaced and go from there, its a mater of time before the car just wont start,hope this is helpful.

I own a 2002 Dodge Intrepid earlier I drove my car car ran fine 3 hours later I go back out to get in the car and the car won't start all my lights were on turned the key to start the vehicle nothing...


clean battery cables very good.use grease on ends andposts.slice insulation back a bit to see if there is white powder corrosion inside if so replace cables.but bet cleaning posts and ends will do the trick use grease.

check the crank shaft position sensor located on the upper drivers side of the bellhousing.Check the plug and wires too.if its going bad it will create a no spark condition.

02 Chevy Cavalier - Fast Clicking Noise When I Turn Key


your battery isnt holding enough charge to crank the starter.thats what the clicking is. try charging you battery for a good 8-10 hours, if it still does the same thing you'll need a new battery.

2006 ford mustang wont start after driving the car for a few hours cut car off and parked for about a hour or so when returned to get back in car to leave the car would not start the lights inside the car...


Sounds like an electrical mess up. Im not too familiar with ford and newer vehicles. It could be the starter getting jambed. The make a grinding/clicking noise..Something like a selenoid? Just ideas..
