SOURCE: A4 steering lock does not engage and car won't turn over

The steering locks don't necessarily engage when the key is removed, I always turn the wheel before exiting to engage it. There are several positions that will allow the pin to lock in but if between these, it may seem that it isn't locked.

Fuel pump wont start when ignition is on unless you hold fuel relay switch


Normally the fuel pump relay should only turn on the fuel pump for a few seconds if the engine won't start. It is a safety to prevent fuel pumps from running after the engine dies in an accident. The safety detects the engine running by alternator output on most cars, but oil pressure switch on some. But sounds like the relay is bad or loose?

I just installed a new key switch in my 2006 trailblazer it is a napa part now when I start it it will only run for a few seconds and die ?


That is because of the vehicle theft deterrent system ! Do you have a security light lit on the instrument cluster ?
The Passlock?"¢ System is provided in order to prevent vehicle theft if the ignition lock cylinder is forced to rotate or the ignition switch is operated while separated from the ignition lock cylinder case. If starting is attempted without authorization from the Passlock?"¢ System, the powertrain control module (PCM) will disable engine starting. Start disable may be in the form of fuel disable or starter disable, depending on engine application.
The components of the Passlock?"¢ System are as follows:
?€¢
The ignition lock cylinder and key


?€¢
The ignition lock cylinder case, including the Passlock?"¢ sensor


?€¢
The ignition switch


?€¢
The body control module (BCM)


?€¢
The security indicator on the instrument cluster


?€¢
The powertrain control module (PCM)

Ignition Lock Cylinder Case, Including the Passlock?"¢ Sensor
The ignition lock cylinder fits inside the ignition lock cylinder case and operates the ignition switch when turned by a key with the proper mechanical cut. When the ignition key is used to turn the ignition lock cylinder to crank, start, a magnet on the lock cylinder passes close to the Passlock?"¢ sensor within the ignition lock cylinder case. The magnet activates the security hall effect sensor in the Passlock?"¢ sensor which completes a circuit from the security sensor signal circuit through a resistor to the security sensor low reference circuit. The resistance value will vary from vehicle to vehicle.
If a magnet from outside of the ignition lock cylinder case is used to attempt to steal the vehicle, the tamper hall effect sensor will be activated. This completes a circuit from the security sensor signal circuit through a tamper resistor to the security sensor low reference circuit bypassing the security resistor. If the ignition switch is forced to rotate without the correct key, or if the ignition lock cylinder is removed by force, the Passlock?"¢ sensor will be damaged and will not operate.

I have 2008 Sprinter 2500 (3.0 diesel) . it's been in an accident, after i fixed it, it won't start. Something doesn't let it do it. Does anybody know if I should reset the whole system at


the sensor keeping it from starting it is an inertia switch. it is a safety feature in case the vehicle rolls or is wrecked etc... it cuts the power to the fuel pump. generally it is located in the trunk of cars or in your case probably near the kick panel on the passenger side. usually has a button to pus to reset

01 mitsu galant do nothing,all lights on, chip key ok i think


Find a strip of white pasteboard (like the form used in the collar of a new shirt. Cut it in the shape of the chip key from the handle to the beginning of the key pin cuts (don't make it any longer than this; you don't want to grind pasteboard into the lock mechanism). Slide it into the lock several times to clean off any gunk that might have been deposited on the chip contacts. Clean both sides of the chip on the key with a paper towel or cotton swab dampened with rubbing alcohol, then dry it.
If it still doesn't work, you may have bent the contacts in the lock, and it needs to be taken apart for repair.

No fuel pump noise... no fuel pressure. If the shut off fuel safety switch is not activated is there a by pass plug for testing fuel pump?


Is power coming into the fuel pump inertia switch (AKA fuel cut off switch) and going out? they get burned connectors, check that first. also the ignition switches also come apart in this year Ford, the switch is located near the base of the steering column and it operated by a long metal rod coming from the igntion lock cylinder. Remember when doing these tests that the fuel pump is only getting power for 1 second unless the engine starts or is cranking over.

Can you tell me where the emergency shut off switch is on the 05 ford fusion 1.4 petrol please? had a small tip last night and the engine wont fire.


Its in your owner manual, or go to motorcraft.com, pro center, tech info, owner manual and look it up.

FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH

This device stops the electric fuel pump from sending fuel to the engine

when your vehicle has had a substantial jolt.

After an accident, if the engine cranks but does not start, this switch

may have been activated.


The fuel pump shut-off switch is

located in the front passenger

footwell area in the right upper

corner.


To reset the switch:

1. Turn the ignition to 1 (LOCK).

2. Check the fuel system for leaks.

3. If no leaks are apparent, reset the

switch by pushing in on the reset

button.

4. Turn the ignition to 3 (RUN).

5. Wait a few seconds and return

the key to 1 (LOCK).

6. Make another check for leaks.

My 1994 Ford Escort won't start and it keeps showing a light that says, "Fuel Cut Out," I don't know what this means so I can't fix my problem. Can you help?


in the event of an accident, there is a safety cut-off switch the stops the fuel pump. there is a reset button normally located in the rear of the car and is marked "fuel cut-off reset switch". it's possible this switch tripped.

Kia sportage will not start no power to the fuel pump


The fuel pump is always controlled by a relay. The relay is controlled by the ignition switch and some sort of safety cut out. But once you locate the relay, you can look at the diagram on its side, and figure out how to temporarily jumper the pump to on. But you will still have to figure out if the relay is bad, there is no ignition voltage, or if there is an inertial accident sensor that needs to be reset.
