If it just clicks when you try to turnover the car this indicates a problem in the starting circuit. I would first try having the battery checked. You can remove the battery and take it to your nearest auto parts store and they can check your battery. It should be located in your trunk on the passenger side underneath a plastic tray. Even though the accessories are working, there may not be enough power to turn over the car. If you have already done this, the next thing I would check would be the starter itself. If this is the first time you've had this problem, you can also try tapping on the side of the starter with a small hammer or rubber mallet. It could just be stuck in a burnt spot on the windings inside. Let me know if this helps.

YOUR STARTER MIGHT NEED TO BE REPLACED. BEAT IT WITH A HAMMER NEXT TIME AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL START.

My 1962 Buick electra 225 wont start. When I turn the key the accesories come on but the engine wont start. it doesnt even try to start.


Sounds like the relay in the starting motor circuit has failed, or a starting motor/solenoid problem - have them checked. This can also be caused by a problem in the ignition switch.

Engine wont turn over and no lights with key in accesory position


What about with the key in the on position -do the warning lights and gauges turn on? That would mean the ignition switch has power and can turn on.
Any theft alarm activated, immobilizing the car?
Won't turn over- you mean won't start or the starter won't spin the engine over? If it won't start, ignition spark or fuel problem. If the engine won't crank, problem is in the start circuit- from battery to starter, and from battery to ignition switch to starter. Park/neutral safety switch is in circuit between key switch and starter.

Bmw 740 il key broke in half at remote part car


Yes it is, but just having the key near the ignition is enough to start the car. If you can turn the ignition with the broken key, hold the broken part in your hand and see if it will start. Hopefully the chip isn't damaged. I know that when GM keys are replaced, they glue the old key under the dash to make it work. Hope this helps.

No crank


shorting to start motor will allow the motor to turn but the ignition system is still off.
try with key turned to ignition position.
suspect starter solenoid on starter motor.
suspect fuses maybe there is a fuse which has blown.
suspect ignition key switch maybe defective.

When the ignition is turned off, accesories remain on,


sounds like you may have a short. i would replace all the relays that control those items first to eliminate that.

Poss ignition problem


Hello!

Sounds like a stuck ignition relay. 
Try tapping with something ******* the ignition switch when this happens, see if it helps.
If it does consider replacing the ignition switch.

Hope this helps!
