Could be the key...new car keys are equipped with built-in electronic devices that are set to specifically work only on a specific car....try an alternate key if you have one on hand....or it could be a relay....which is located in your fuse panel, and probably listed under ignition.....you can't tell when a relay is bad by looking at it when it is plugged into it's slot in the fuse tray.....you might have multiple fuse blocks on your car...check your manual for locations and fuse/relay locations/labels.....if you have an identical relay that is used to relay a signal to something like wipers or an other non ignition accessories....use it to check your ignition relay by unplugging it from the non ignition accessory plug and plugging it into your ignition plug to see if the car starts....you may have set your car into defensive mode by accidentally setting off your alarm system....there is a reset code or list of actions you have to do to reset the alarm in your manual or check on-line in forums or your manufacturers web site.....lastly....your ignition switch may be shorted out or a wire may have been cut or dislodged.....now your getting into a problem that will probably require you to tow your vehicle to the nearest or your favored mechanic/dealership. This will fall under a specialized area of auto electrical specialist......if you have a high quality code reading machine....plug it in and see what transpires....it might tell you more than you know about your problem now....can hurt...borrow the neighbors code reader.....have him/her set it up and operate it so you don't end up having to buy a new one because you operated it incorrectly....chin up....never say never....research the problem on line.....


Good luck and I hope I was of some service to your need.

You can jump across the celonoid on the starter. If the engine turns over then your problem is either the celonoid or the starter switch.

You could have a start that has gone bad and will need to be replace,or your having a Passlock system problem.

Your Passlock may need to relearn the ignition keys, if the ignition lock has gone bad like my in-laws Grand Am Gt, here is what i did so they will not get stranded any more. Buy a Passlock by pass module for around $70.00. You can orderone from GMPASSLOCK.COM in the mean time try resetting the Passlock. Good luck

Ignition keys relearn takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure
1.) Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
2.) Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start.
3.) Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF.
4.) Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds.
5.) Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes.
The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.
6.) Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password.
7.) With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles.

Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.

SOURCE: dash dead ,turn key

It there is a problem with the dash, there is probably no power to the anti theft module in your ignition. The car is in anti theft mode due to not being able to read your key transponder. Basically if it cant read the key, it thinks its being stolen. Either fix the dash lights, or fully bypass the security. All the security info you need is on here including how to bypass it.

2005 grand am no start no dash lights only power locks when turning key. New battery and ignition switch. What can it be?


No dash lights? no warning lights? Then ignition is not being turned to ON. Check all your fuses. Recheck your replacement work. Battery cables clean and tight? Headlights work? If lights are bright, battery is good and cables are good, so key to ON should light up warning lights on dash. If not something up still with your ignition switch.

I turn the key and nothing no lights on dash battery is good and fuses!!


Check for power to the ignition switch via test light or better a multimeter, could be a blown fusible link, usually housed in engine bay , or faulty ignition switch...
Work your way forward from the battery, testing power to and through all fuses, connections.

Do the headlights or hazard lights work...

2000 Pontiac sunfire won't start makes no noise when turn key over . headlights and radio work and dome light .. I have replaced steering column and ignition switch


This could be a couple different things causing your No-start condition. first thing I would check (Battery is good) access the starter solenoid, the small single wire connection is the start signal. Test for 12 volts here with DVOM or test light while someone turns the key. If there is 12 volts reading, the starter solenoid is defective. If there isn't 12 volts reading check all the fuses (with test light).
The second item causing the trouble could be the Neutral Safety Switch (Auto Trans) or Clutch Safety Switch (Manuel Trans) These could be open or out of adjustment.
Hope this helps you...

2002 chev impala, will not start. fuel pump and gauge not working on dash. When i go to start all lights go out on dash and than they will come back on in 3 or 4 seconds?


Have the battery tested if no good replace. Check for power at the starter cable and then while someone holds the key in the crank position check for power at the trigger wire of the starter. If you have power but no crank or click then you may have a bid starter or the engine is seized. If no power on the tarter little wire which comes from the ignition switch make sure you fuses and relay is good and that your ignition switch is working. If the battery tests good have your alternator checked as well.

I have no power at all when the key is in , no light in the dash nothing


Do you have headlights with the headlight switch on? That would eliminate a battery connection problem. If things like headlights and brake lights work, one should next check that power is getting to the ignition switch. If you pull the connector under the dash off for the ignition switch, there should be a hot-at-all-times wire going to the ignition switch. Check with a test light or voltmeter. If no power to the switch, back to the fuse box by the battery-an ignition fuse may have blown. If power is available to the switch, suspect a bad ignition switch.

No start or no electrical power inside or outside of the vehicle


No headlights, horn, or brake lights? I would expect nothing at the ignition switch, either, then? No warning lights or gauges with key on?

Any chance the battery is discharged? It would have to be very low or dead if connections are clean and tight. Inspect the cables, take them off and clean the terminals of corrosion, tighten them down good. Check the ground where it bolts to metal-if not a good ground, power will not flow. From the battery, power is sent through fuse links and maxi fuses in the power distribution box, to distribute power through all the car's circuits. Either a fuse link or a maxi fuse will send power to the ignition switch. Another will send power to the headlight switch, and another will send power to the fuse panel under the dash, powering those fuses that are hot at all times (like the brake lights and horn).
It sounds like your power is not getting from the battery to the power distribution box, if just nothing works. Bad battery or bad connection, possibly.

2000 Nissan Altima will not start, battery is good tested at 12 volts. key in switch reminder is the only thing you can hear nothing else is powered?


None of the main fuses have power ? Do the headlights and interior lights work ?
Do you have power from the battery cable to the box ?
Could it be a problem with the key switch ?

92 plymouth voyager wont start and nothing work the windows wont go down the lock and unlock button does nothing idk what the problem is i had the battery tested and the battery is fine what would cause...


Nothing works? How about the headlights, do they work? If yes, then start checking all fuses in the Power Distribution Center or Box under the hood. If no, then look for a bad maxi-fuse in the PDC, and check for a bad fusible link between the battery and the PDC. The battery positive cable goes to the starter, but a pigtail lead off the positive would go to the PDC, to distribute power to all the various circuits on the car.
When you turn the key to on, does the dash light up? If yes, at least power is getting to, and going through the ignition switch. One could then check for power on the starter solenoid wire when key was held in crank or start position.
If nothing when turning key to on-no dash lights, nothing-then check for an ignition fuse in the PDC. If fuse is good check for power being available at the ignition switch connector. If no power there, check wiring between PDC and the ignition switch-if power is up to the switch, but nothing happens with key on, no dash or warning lights, then could have a bad ignition switch.
It just sounds like a maxi-fuse has blown, or a bad fusible link. Good luck.

I have good battery in car but no dash lights and car will not start or when i turn the key nothing 'no click no speedo lights


Do you have power to the fuse box under the hood? if not then check the integrity of the Positive battery cable. This could also be the ignition starter switch down low on the steering column tube under the dash, the switch comes apart and you loose power to the car. You will need to buy a 12 volt test light probe to do the testing, about $4 at any Autozone or Advance Auto parts. Below is a picture of the starter switch I mentioned.1_29_2012_1_04_33_am.jpg

2009 HHR won't start. Battery is good.


Is the security light on or blinking?If not then do you have power to the starter.You can check this with a test light.You should have power when you turn the key to start.The test light should light up.Should be the small wire.I believe it is purple in color.If the security light is on then you will have to get the codes to see what is causing the no start.Hope this helps.Good luck.
