Have the battery checked for voltage and amperage. A dead cell in a battery will have power but nothing to turn the starter. If its not the battery try replacing the starter.

Vehicle wont start


First, is the security light staying on or flashing ? You have a problem with the chip in the key or the security system if it is.
Otherwise, you need to know if you have battery power at both terminals on the starter when the key is in the start position. One possible cause is the neutral safety switch.

You tried it in neutral but did you take it out of park and force it back into park? Just a suggestion since sometimes the switch that tells it that it is in park needs a bit of a nudge sometimes.

Will not turn over


If the lights work but no crank, it could be the security system or the neutral safety switch among other things.
Is the security light on or flashing ? Do the warning lights come on when you turn the key on ? Did you try cranking it in neutral ?

2003 Aurora, left key on and battery went dead. Recharged battery. Won't start. Turn key to on, security light out and check engine light on. Move key to start and nothing, back to on, one minut


Very interesting site here.. regarding your problem. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/
Another thought.. even though you charged the battery, it's not at all uncommon for a car battery to be very damaged by fully discharging. Especially if not new-ish. One or more cells in it may be bad causing the overall voltage to be under normal. This alone can cause the problem you have. I would try jumping it with another car or test the battery to see if it's got at least 12.7 to 12.9 volts when sitting doing nothing. Good luck.

95 buick park av. ultra will not start battery good & starter


If the engine will not crank, a mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch on the starter circuit.

It sounds like a bad connection somewhere, check the battery cable connections for corrosion and tightness, both ends. It could be the starter, starter solenoid, starter relay, neutral safety switch or ignition. Try moving the shift lever to the "N" position and see if that helps. When you say you have a dead key, do you mean you have no dash lights, (oil pressure light, battery light, things of that nature) no clicking, no nothing?

I have a 1995 Volvo 960 Sedan won't start


Try shifting the transmission to neutral and try starting the engine, if it starts, the gear position sensor is bad, which is very common on this car.
Or, the starter may be bad, not common, but possible!
