There are several things that must happen for it to work. My first thought is the solenoid circuit. IF that's good, then a relay isn't giving the go-ahead for the starter circuit to engage. Assuming the brake circuit is working, and the car really knows it's in PARK (I had a Dodge that had a misaligned linkage and the key wouldn't engage the power to the starter) then the ignition switch might be the problem.

SOURCE: car wont start when i turn the key

The first thing you need to check is whether the key has a pellet in it or "chip". If it does...the problem is most likely your key lock cylinder. Go buy a new key lock cylinder....KEEP YOUR OLD KEY. Take your new lock cylinder down to any Chevrolet dealer to find out what the VATS number is for your key....then have the dealer cut you a new key with that same VATS number...then go to your vehicle and remove the negative battery cable...this does two things...1. It resets the computer after a five minute period of no power...2.. allows you to work on the steering column without power on it.

Remove the steering wheel with the aid of repair manual.

Put the new key lock cylinder with the wire running down the steering column. Then put the steering column back together....Hook up the negative battery cable, then use your new key that was CUT and your car should start

SOURCE: car wont start possible ignition switch problem

Im assuming you're saying it will NOT start. If thats the case but the engine turns over then there could be three possible problems. Number one is no fuel or fuel pressure, number two, no spark from your spark plugs or number 3- bad ignition module. if these are good, then it could be more severe such as bad computer, bad crank shaft sensor....etc....in any case, checking for fuel problems or ignition problems is the first thing you should do.....most likely, it's one of those 2 faults.......good luck

Car wont start


My routine to check non-starting motors: (petrol/gas models)

  • Check immobilizer status
  • Check fuel supply -does it reach the fuel rail when starting. If not OK, check 12v supply to fuel pump when starting. If OK, fuel pump maybe dead.If not present, check fuel pump fuse and relay.
  • If fuel supply is OK, check spark ignition. If not OK, follow the supply circuit backwards to the ECM. Coils and/or ignition amplifier connector should have one 12v supply to it when ignition switch is on.
For Diesels with 'common rails' you can take same approach for fuel. No ignition testing possible. The diesel fuel pump still needs battery power. It will make some sound when IGN is on. If not, check ALL fuses and relays.

Use a 12volt test light and connect to the starter energiser wire, get someone to turn the key and see if the test light comes on, if no then the starter relay has packed in. A further test you can do, but YOU NEED TO BE CAREFUL, set car in park DON't switch the ignition on, and direct feed the starter to see if it cranks the engine, if yes you are back to the starter relay.

1500 Ram wont start, no crank no click nothing. Air cond and dash lights work just fine just wont start. Battery is ok tried to jump, no luck, put in different battery no luck.


First thing is to check is the ignition fuse/relay under the hood for a blown fuse or bad relay. If everything is ok then set parking brake with truck in park/netural and have someone to turn the ignition over to start and at the same time use a test light to check for fire at the starter solenoid. If no fire then the ignition switch or netural switch on transmission is causing the problem. If you do have power to the starter solenoid then the problem would be either the solenoid or the starter drive locked up on the flywheel. Be sure to remove the negative wire from the battery if you need to remove the starter. Hope this will help you.

You need to establish that you have 12v in the battery and that all connections are clean and secure. Lights horn etc do not give you voltage verification...your starter uses more amperage than anything else in the car. Once you are certain that everything is OK, check for 12v at the small wire on the starter with the key turned to start. If no volts, check the neutral safety switch or clutch switch Then check ignition switch for power in/out.

The ignition switch . where you turn the key at. If it has spark and you have checked everything else . When you turn on the key, the dashlights , are supposed to turn on and then go off as you turn further to start the car. If there are no lights lighting as you turn on the key , you may have a faulty igniton switch.
