First check your battery and make sure it is charged up. A low battery will do this as well Next if the battery is up check your starter as it sounds like the solenoid switch on your starter could be faulty. Probably need a new one Make sure all your battery cables are clean and tight.as well on your battery _ starter and your ground to the engine.

Changed ignition barrel on suzuki ignis 01 now.it will only start by bumping it once started there is no warning lights on and it drive fine you try start with key it clicks or does nothing


Why did you change the ignition cylinder? Sounds as if the ignition switch is not working properly. This switch is usually attached to the back side of the ignition cylinder and the barrel portion of the cylinder turns the switch. You can remove the switch from the cylinder and insert a screwdriver into the switch and turn it manually. If nothing happens when the switch is turned, it could be defective

In my 1999 dodge caravan the ignition only turns the engine over after repeated attempts.


Sounds to me like the ignition switch itself. If there is no click or absolutely nothing and after several key turns it will work then the ignition switch itself is going bad. I'm not positive if this vehicle has a security key. If it does try another key if have more than 1 for the vehicle or get a replacement key. The ignition switch will either need replaced or could be the switch no longer able to read the security key if it has one.

When i turn my wheel to the left only my front right tire makes a nosie


if its a clicking sound only when turning then it sounds like a bad cv joint that needs replacing.replacing the complete half shaft is the best way to fix this.if its a squealing noise then the front end components should be checked and possibly the alignment.

Turn key on nothing ,trun key off and on three or four time then it start


Either u got problem in ur ignition switch contactor(it is located aty the end of ur ignition key assembly) or the starter solenoid.

Do u hear any clicking sound when u try to crank ur ignition key? if u hear some clicking sound that means ur starter solenoid got problem.


If u don't hear ny clicking sound, that means ur contactor in the switch is at fault!


better bring ur car to ur nearest garage to fix on that, if u can fix it it by urself try it.

Ignition switch will not activate starter motor consistently. Sometimes no, sometimes with a second click of key. Cleaned ignition switch contacts and wire harness connector contacts. Could a relay be the...


Bad ignition switch and starter symptoms are similar. The engine will turn sometimes and will not turn some other times. If it is the switch you will not even here a clicking sound. If the starter is bad you might hear a clicking. If the distributor is bad than the engine will turn every time but it will not start running or will start but not run properly (misfire).

Making a nosie on driver side but when i distconte


is it a very fast wizzing noise?

if so the seloniod on the starter motor has gone! give it a tap with a hammer if you can get to it or put the car in 2nd gear and take the hand brake off, make sure the keys are not in the ignition and push the car forward it until you feel the engine turn, it wont start but should free off the starter motor.

Engine will not turn over or make much of a sound.


It sounds like it is probably your ignition switch. Either that or your starter selenoid.

it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,
