I think the switch in the locked position, is not allowing other voltages to go to the rest of the engine and car. Only the starter realise seems to work. Without power on the ignition, the motor can't start.
Try wiggling out the key, so you can use a better key, or at least can find out what is blocking the main switch.

the switch is located next to the peddle, what you can do is to connect the cables and eliminate the switch.

In this case it is wise to change out your ignition switch. It sounds like the internals where the key fits into, some of the slots have lost their spring. Luckily you own a classic car that is not hard to take column off and replace it!

SOURCE: I can't turn the key to starter position

Had this problem. Key would turn round and round and never catch. Sprayed some liquid wrench in the key hole. Works great. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it keeps working.

SOURCE: where is the starter relay on a 94 Honda Accord

Yes, it sounds like your solenoid is bad and staying engaged against the flywheel, you could do an amperage draw and a voltage drop test to find out for sure, but you will need an DVOM and a amp clamp. Or you could take it into an auto parts store and they will test it for free. Hope this helps.

Car will not start, its not battery, I was told its a fuse, need diagram of fuses to which one affects starting car


Car will not start how ? A crank- no - start or a no crank - no - start < meaning when you turn the key to the start position does anything happen ? Starter engages an spins the engine an doesn't start an run ! Or when you turn the key to start the position nothing happens ? Who told you it was a fuse ? Are there any light's lit on the instrument cluster , SECURITY ? If Nothing happens Find the starter relay an jump pin's 30 & 87 , if nothing is wrong with starter , battery , battery cables it should spin the engine . Is your vehicle automatic transmission or stick ? Automatic has a neutral safety switch , won't let vehicle engine spin unless in park or neutral . Manual has clutch switch , won't let starter engage unless the clutch pedal is pressed . Both of these switches can go bad . There are videos on youtube on basic electrical trouble shooting . Also on testing starter circuit . How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit

Car won't engage starter


At the starter relay, you have two red or purple wires, one goes to the starter and the other comes from a 30amp fuseable link. Is that fuseable link circuit hot ?
From the key switch, power goes thru the alarm relay, then the clutch safety switch or automatic selector switch, then to the starter relay. The fourth wire on the starter relay is a ground.
You should be able to put power to the starter relay on the white or yellow wire coming from the safety switch to make the relay engage.
My guess is something wrong with the alarm system.

So the problem has been occuring for a year and you are just now trying to fix it? Sorry, I just simply do not understand why people do this...keep driving it until it won't drive anymore even though you KNOW it has a problem....Maybe you can explain this to me???

If you can hear the starter clicking when you try to start it, then you have a bad starter. If it makes no noise at all. then you most likely have a bad clutch switch.

Press on clutch an dosent send power 2 the starter


Pressing on the clutch doesn't actually send power to the starter. It's merely a safety switch that won't allow the starter to engage until the pedal is depressed. Follow the clutch arm up under your dash, and you should be able to see the switch. Either the switch is stuck, or your clutch isn't going down far enough. You should be able to determine the problem once you see it. I had one guy who couldn't get his to start, and the only problem was the floor mats were in the way.

When i push my clutch pedal down the starter engages, what is the cause of this?


Hi!!

The clutch switch is designed to prevent vehicle from accidentally engage the starter unless the clutch pedal is depressed. (It is the equivalent to the Neutral Safety Switch for automatic transmissions.)

Pressing the clutch pedal by itself will NOT activate the starter unless the key is in the RUN position.

Check your ignition switch. it may be stuck on RUN.

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck!!

My 1990 Toyota pickup: normally to start it you press the clutch all the way in while turning the key. Now this is not working. The last time it did start when I pressed the clutch in there was the sound...


Push the clutch down while you are looking at the switch, it is right at the top of the clutch pedal. My bet is that there is a gap and the pedal is not engaging the switch. The sheet metal on the fire wall probably gave way. Check it out, then you can reinforce the firewall that the clutch safety switch is mounted on. Good luck. I just had this happen tonight. Much quicker then tracing wires.

Im have a 40 watt fuse that blows when i start my truck occasiona


It could be either the ignition switch,clutch safety switch(if applicacle)or the starter solenoid,I'm including the circuit diagram for you,one of the 2 or three if it's manual trans has short,if the fuse is blowing as soon as you turn the key on(not engaging the starter)it will be in the switch itself or the clutch safety switch.If it happens when you go to engage the starter it's most likely the solenoid.
