Ignition switch will not engage/turn to start car


Hi Beth usually when shifter is stuck there is a locking mechanism and keeps shifter from engaging unless brake is depressed to release the lock. If you hear a clicking sound when pedal is depressed then switch is probably ok and its probably the steering wheel lock. First try with your spare key to start the vehicle(old key may be worn ). If that doesn't do it then try with WD 40 a very little in ignition key hole or on the key work it slowly and see what happens. If none of these suggestions work its probably the steering wheel lock and that requires surgery. Keep me post best of luck

pull the starter and fix the solenoid or replace the solenoid. It is engaging the armature with out engaging the pinion into the ring gear or the pinion override clutch is failed. Have a reputable auto electrician check it on the bench

I cant turn my key to the off position on my 2000 chevy malibu ! what is the problem ?


is the car fully in park if it is then u may have a prob with the park lock. In normal operation the key wont turn off all the way if it is not in park check to see if the censor is working or engaging. If all is working correctly then it might be that the tumblers in the ignition lock cylinder are the problem

Yes, you damaged steering column lock and switch. Just replace ignition/lock switch and connect all wiring and lock lever and you should be good to go.

My tailkights are not working at all. My Park in the car is stuck and won;t come down with motor started.


turn engine off. Turn key to OFF position, (no lights on dash lit). Step on brake, pull shift lever to neutral. start car, put in drive and go. this is emergency bypass.

When the key is ON, the shift lock soneoid is engaged and won't release till the brake is applied. Since you don't have brake lights, it means the solenoid won't unlock.
check for a blown fuse or a bad brake switch on the brake pedal.

OFF is the first click clockwise from LOCK. it goes, LOCK, OFF, ON, START.

2003 malibu will turn over but wont start.instrument cluster inop


Is the theftlock light lit up on the dash? It it is you may have a problem with the GM manufacturer theftlock device. The Theftlock system prevents the vehicle from being started without its own key and shuts of the fuel injectors which is typically why it turns over but won't start. It's quite problematic on mine and locks the car so you have to replace the cylinder.

If the "Theft System" light is flashing on in the dash sit in the car with the key in the "On" position. When the light stops flashing it will light solid for a second then go out. Open and close the driver side door, turn the car off, turn and start the car. This resets the theft lock and I kid you not it works.

How to get my key out of the ignition


Please try this:

Turn on the engine and place gear in Neutral, engage the e-brake, then switch off the engine.
Try to move the key into the 'LOCK' position. With the common ignition assembly placed, this should not be possible.

From this point, place the gear into park and turn ignition towards the 'LOCK' position (there may be a button, or the need to push the key further into the keyhole). You should get the key into the 'LOCK' position and allow you to pull it out.

Let me know if this works and provide feedback. Thanks!

When you try to start car the alarm goes off and car wont start and horn goes on and off the locks click back and forth


'99 camry: with alarm sounding. turn key to "ON" position and press in and hold alarm button (red two position (in /out) on dash board. Button should go from flashing red to solid red. Release button when it stays lit (solid bright red) . Alarm is now in disabled mode and engine should crank when key is turned to "start" position. "Thank you" for over the phone tech support at Richardson Toyota in Texas.
