It sounds like you have your starter solenoid wires on your starter crossed try switching them.

Will srart by the starter but not by the ignition and won't stay started


First let's define some terminology. The job of the starter motor is to "crank" the engine, if it does this, weather the engine runs is going to depend on the fuel system and the ignition system and good compression. Try this: with one hand, hold the key it the "crank" position, with your other hand, move the gear shift (slowly)from park to reverse to neutral to drive. Make sure you foot is on the brake as it may start in gear. If it starts while doing this, you have a bad neutral safety switch.
Also, It wont stay running when you crank it by jumping the starter if the ignition switch is off. Try doing it again with the key on. If it starts with the key on, and you jumping it at the starter, you probably have a bad, or out of adjustment, ignition switch. If it does not start, with the key on and cranking by jumping the starter, then you probably have a fuel or ignition problem.
Try the above and get back to me. I can walk you through how to check for fuel and spark if it still wont run.

2004 2.2 Olds Alero starter will not start unless I jump the solenoid


My daughter had an alero and frequently it had issues with the security features and had to follow the reset procedure to get it to start. I cannot remenber the reset procedure but it is available online in a lot of places, as so many people have had issues with that car. Something to the effect of putting it in neutral and turning the key to the on position but not try to start it, leave it there for 10 minutes or something and then the car will start. The security lamp would go out. I just rememembered after typing all of that, that the security lamp in the dash display would light or flash when that was the issue. My daughter solved all fo her alero problems. She bought a Mazda 3 , You didnt buy that from Off lease.com during the past year or so did you? Maybe her old car???

All comes on when key is turned on, starter will not engage when key turned to position. new starter, new battery, starter attempts to start car when jumped at starter relay 87 w/key on. car had started,...


Does the car have a factory security system? it may have a starter kill on it.
also check for voltage at the starter solenoid while someone holds the key to start position, you could have a faulty ignition switch.
the engine light stays on when the key is on until engine starts.

When i turn the key on the engine starts but when i let go of the key the engine dies


I think your ignition switch is bad. The car is starting and running for a couple of seconds, right? Not just cranking with no fire? Can you put key in on position and jump starter externally? If you can jump starter but car won't run then definately problem in ignition switch.

1994 gp 3100 ,wont start, turn key getting all the dash lites but starter not engaging, security lite is flashing, the car was drove to my hse i know it runs any ideas, battery is new, key is a #7.with key...


You need to set the parking brake, Turn the key on let it sit like that for 10 mins. the sec light will either start flashing or will stay on or go off when done (This will reset)
REPEAT 3 times!
Then you should be able to start the car after the 3rd time!
