If you have a keypad to enter numbers on the door you may have to enter the security code, if not call the dealer. If you have Onstar they may be able to reset the ignition remotely. The only other thing I can say is try disconnecting the battery for about 10 minutes, then reconnect and try.
Your car thinks it is being stolen. It reads the key chip for security and lost the circuit in the keyswitch.

Car won't start after putting in a new steering column


Did you make sure that the ignition switch is plugged in properly? It is mounted to the top of the column under the dash back by the firewall. If it is plugged in properly you might switch it out with the one on the column that was removed.

I replaced the ignition lock cylinder in my 92 cabriolet and I turned the key and it started first swing, then I was putting the steering wheel covers back on and it just turned off... When I try to turn...


If it's an automatic check fuse #15 wether it's a stick or automatic you should have power at the red & black wire coming out of your ignition switch when you turn key to start postion and power at the red wire going into switch at all times. if no power coming oit on the red/black wire you need an ignition switch. if there is power coming out of switch try putting car in nuetral (for auto trans). if still nothing you'll need to check for power at small wire going to starter when key is turned to start. if has power then need starter if no power you'll need to check starter interlock relay.

Cranks and then goes dead


First check your fuel pressure it should be 41-47 psi with key on and engine off if its below 32 psi replace the fuel pump and filter.If fuel pump checks out to be good then take ignition switch out and check for burned ignition switch wires and worn ignition key tumblers and ignition lock cylinder.These cars are known for faulty ignition switches and ignition lock cylinders.Ignition switch gets to hot then it won't start until it cools off.

Drove our 2002 F550 Diesel...shut it off and it would not restart. The dash lights do not come on and the motor cranks fine.... just won't start. Robbie


If the dash lights don't come on then the ignition key switch is no powering the electronics and the diesel pump cutoff solenoid - there is no way for the engine to start.
You need to replace the ignition switch

For that the steering column will have to be dismantled - it's a quite complicated job and if you have never done something like that before you should leave it to a repair shop. Anyone will do, no need for a dealer's shop.

THE CAR WON`T STAR, IT SHOWS THE THEFT ALARM SYSTEM IS THE PROBLEM, HOW SHOUL IT BE DEACTIVATED?


first try another fob, then another ignition key. If none of these work then you need to find the alarm controle module some where under the dash by the steering colume. once you have located the controle module trace the wires usally a red with block stripe back to where it is tee tapped to the wires of the ignition switch. unplugging the tee tapp should allow you to start the vehicle. but the alarm will be deactivated
