The pass lock system receiver located in the ignition lock cylinder is most likely bad.

Car would start but wouldn't stay running. now when i turn the ignition, instead of turning over it makes a strange sound and a little bit of smoke came up from around the battery somewhere


I think you mean "idle".
If you have not already, remove the battery cables and clean the battery posts.
Let me know if it still does not crank.

My geo metro is flashing trouble code 12. But seems to be running fine. I've disconnected the battery but it still flashes when connect the battery again. Any ideas what the problem could be?


Code 12 means the ECM is functioning correctly. No trouble codes stored.
Is there an actual problem with the car ?
Is the check engine light staying on ?

Checked Cables how?

Looking & Touching isn't doing anything

You have to do a voltage drop test or remove
& clean the ends. I would do both

Remove the starter & have it tested at parts store,
assuming you don't know how to do a voltage or
current test while cranking.

Car wont start. when key is turned i get weird clicks.


You said you checked your battery, did you check volts and amps? It's possible that your battery is not functioning properly. You may need a new one. Does it start if you try to jumpstart it?

My 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee started perfectly yesterday morning. After stopping, turning off the car for about 5 minutes it would not start. I had it towed to a repair shop, where it started and all tests...


A definition: cranking is what happens when you turn the key, the starter engages and turns the engine. (term comes from when that was done with a crank that you stuck into the front of the engine to start it, before electric starters were invented) Turning over is the same as cranking. Starting is when the engine actually starts, even if for a brief moment.
Now...if the engine turns when you turn the key it is cranking. Was it doing that? If not, the problem is either in the battery, starter/starter relay or security system (sometimes) or the ignition switch. If it is turning and not starting, then the engine needs to be checked to make sure it has spark at the plugs, and fuel going into it. These problems are different ans some can be easily solved.
