Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a 2002 monti carlo. The car at times will not start.Symptoms Lights come on in the interior but the starter will not turn on. The security light comes on and goes off at random. The most problems seem to occur when the car is driven in rain or just sits in the rain. I think there is some kind of short occurring the interior lights come on and when I turn the key to too start the engine it almost kills all the interior lights, this doesn't happen all the time. Help Frustrated

it may be the ignition switch itself. If it is a manual transmission it could be the clutch safty neutral switch located on the clutch pedal.

My 97 monte carlo wont start i turn the key on and the only thing that turns on is the fuel pump we check the starter and it is fine we changed out the ignition switch and it still wont start when we turn...


try this-make sure the battery is in good condition (charge it if you can) turn everything off (radio, heater/ac/fan, no interior lights)-turn the key on (not start and leave it on for 15 minutes-without turning it off after 15 minutes, turn it to crank-if it is your security system it should start. You have a security module that, over time, is not happy anymore with the feedback it is getting from your ignition switch, and it is disabling your starter. There are a number of fixes ans work arounds for this, but sometimes if you can get it to start it delays the eventual total failure for a while. Try this first, then get back to see if we can help more.

My 2002 Monte Carlo will not start.I drove to work on Friday and could not strt when I was going to lunch. I've checked my battery and cables, fuses, starter. I even shorted the started and the car...


This sounds like an antitheft security problem. When this system fails, it shuts off the starter and the injectors because it thinks its getting stolen. You can jump it at the starter which is a good sign that the ignition is locking the starter out. Starting for 2 seconds is a good sign that the injectors are off. Read this link and compare these symptoms.

98 monty carlo / wont start unless the ignition module fuse is disconnected. already put another ignition module and coil pack on . tried another computer too.


Is there a light that says SECURITY somewhere on the dash? These cars are notorious for failing anti theft systems that lock out the starter. This link explains and offers DO IT YOURSELF solutions.

try car to car boost-battery charger may not be working correctly or set on low amp charge -interior lights and dash may all light but battery may not be strong enough to energize starter have battery tested if battery good than check for power to the starter if power-- starter may be shot can remove also and have tested at most auto stores free if no power battery -wiring-or connection issue would need to test fuse panel-ignition switch and starter solenoid

I HAVE A 2002 MONTY CARLO .the track off light/SECURITY LIGHT


The security thing could be the interpreter, but here is something for you to consider. Do you have another car that has security. Another GM or a chrysler? If you have another key on the ring that gets too close to the field generated to intercept the crystal in your ignition key it will shut it down for a while. I had an 01 Impala and a 99 LHS, and I had to remove my LHS key because it was causing this same problem.

The Trac off light is because of the ABS. Traction control uses the ABS to control the slipping of a tire. It cannot work if ABS does not work. Get the ABS fixed and you will probably find your traction control will work again too.

Hope this helps.

2002 Monte Carlo SS starting when it wants


The Starter silenoid is probably what the problem is. And the knocking could that be a loose starter? The two problems doesn't seem connected.
