Possibilities
1-Battery is high enough to power dash and lights but to weak to turn the engine.
2-Computer may be sending an error message to the ignition system, sometimes legit, but quite often just a glitch.
3-Ground wire has came loose, small black cable under the hood attached to the car body or frame. In many cars, that one wire dis-connected will cause exactly what you're describing.
If that's not it,
4-You should try removing the battery for a few minutes, to re-set the computer, or you may have to do that manually, consult the owners manual before trying either of the last two. Hope I helped. Grimm

SOURCE: '98 Saturn SL1 won't start. Alarm system behaving

I had this same exact problem in a family member's Saturn. If you are opening the door with the key and not using the key FOB to unlock the doors, then the security system will not allow you to start the car. You will notice when this happens that the dome light will blink and you'll hear the relay in the BCM clicking.

In order to stop the security system from doing this: Make sure the car is locked with the key fob by hitting the lock button. Then hit the unlock button on the key fob once and then once again (I do it out of habit). Then open the driver side door, put the key in and it should start no problem.

There may be another circuit supplying power to the key switch, separate from the accessory portion. Check your fuses in the fuse/relay block under the hood. It could be a bad key switch, but you need to check for power into the switch first. Ignition switches usually have more than one hot wire in.

I was driving my 97 Celica 2.2, cruise control on at 70 mph. It just dies. No sounds.. Just shut off. Now won't turn over. Its auto it I would've tried to push start it. I'm thinking a ground cane loose...


Check your ground connections from the battery to the frame and from the battery to the engine block of your celica check all fuses and relays if nothing else check battery cables themselves for tightness and any corrosion

97 Chevrolet Lumina. Won't start. Lights, horn, radio all work. Tried jumpstarting. Still nothing. Tapped starter and it started but cuts right off. Noticed Security light flashing. Checked all...


You have a security issue going on. Try turning the key to the on position and leave it on without trying to start the car. Wait about 10 minutes and the light will stop flashing and come one solid. Then try to start the car. Turn the key to the off position. Wait 60 seconds and then turn the key to the on position. See if the light is still flashing. If it is then try the process again. If it isn't flashing and it is on solid then start your car.

Won't start. key works in aux position but not when turned all the way


If you have power in aux position(ex.)radio works but doesn't when you put the key in the start position,the ignition switch is bad,the contacts are warn out for starting/cranking&run positions,these are used everytime you start your car,but auxillary is ony used once in awhile(ex.)your sitting listening to music while waiting for someone to come,but if you do have radio in the run position,but no cranking/starting you could have a blown resistor on fire wall or fuse for ignition,or the starter has called it quits,good luck I don't know if the starter is clicking rapid or just one click or just no power not cranking or cranking a better description of everything that happens will make this alot easier

My 2000 lincoln ls doesn't crank or click when trying to start it, it does nothing? all the lights work, radio, signals and horn, I checked the fuel relay and the starter relay and the ignition fu


Sounds like an Ignition Module or similar device. Does it have an alarm? Turn the key to ON - not start - and put into Drive and then back into Park. It may be the shifter isn't fully engaged. Also, w/your FOOT ON THE BRAKE shift to Neutral and try to start it.

Lights,horn work but car wont start


Troubleshoot the starter. If your battery is good, then you WILL have power...the lights will work, horn, etc, but....if the starter is toast...you need a starter.
