Which engine? of the many and want country. ?
some are even diesel.
there are 3 phases to this.
cranking robustly
starts
and runs. and may stall soon after. or not.
at what point does this process fail.

if it dont crank we diagnose th starter system.
it fails to start (we check spark , then fuel) if both ok we check for lost compression (cam timing belt slipped>?)
if it stalls, lots more test.. over 50 causes.
this is what a tech does, diagnose. saving lots of time guessing and buying un-needed parts.
tell more, get more. but what engine.'

Check your connections on the battery and especially the ground connection on the engine...the problem you describe sounds like a bad connection....you may need to remove the battery cables and clean the posts and the battery cable connectors...also, there is a ground going to the engine block...follow the ground cable(black) down to where it is connected to the engine, remove the bolt holding the cable on and clean the area where the ground goes on with sandpaper to ensure a good connection...you may want to do this with the positive connector as well...it will have a crimp connector on it also, and you will need to clean it the same way as the ground connector...when working with the battery cables, make sure you have one disconnected from the battery to make sure you don't short them out

Car will not start on ignition, engine trying but just wont kick in


First things to check is fuel and spark. When you turn the ignition on do you hear the fuel pump prime? (sounds like a buzzing sound probably from under the rear seats) if it does then thats good! If not then it could be a fuse or even an immobiliser. Does it have an immobiliser? Or even a broken wire, etc. For a spark it's best to use an adaptor between the spark plug and ht lead, it will flash as you turn it over if there is a spark (there are other ways but it's prob best to google them). Would also be worth while to check all connections on the engine, etc. Hope this helps as a starting point. Oh and as you said it is turning over I would assume that the battery is ok but you may also want to volt test this to confirm.

2001 gmc yukon xl key in ignition won't turn to start at all.


The tumblers in the ignition lock may be seized, try cleaning it out first with a small spray of WD40 and try the spare ignition keys. The keys it self may be too worn down for the tumblers in the lock and if you have lots of other keys on your key chains, this will promote the lock to wear out quicker. Good luck and hope this helps and try turning the steering where back and forth as you try to turn the ignition key.

Maybe the security system was not set to valet when service was done. If the alarm was triggered for several times, the security padlock will engage.

My suzuki swift some times wont start..


if you are dealing with one solid click each time you attempt to start, then most likely starter isssue. if there are multiple clicks (like a machine gun), then there is a low voltage situation. maybe battery or connection
