I changed spark plugs and wires..but car wont start..what do i do??

Your year--make--model didn't post for some reason? That info would be helpful.
If no spark, check primary voltage to the coil. Are you missing anything else, fuel pressure--injector pulse? Engine cranking, do you have rpm signal?

I have a 1999 Olds 88 that won't start.

If you have no warning lights, either a fuse is blown or the key switch is not powering the computer and the rest of the ignition system.
If you check the fuses and all are in good condition, I would suspect the ignition switch.

I just bought a 2006 Impala (I dont know if its an LS??) I can see the dummy lights for abs & traction but the maunual says they should light up for a second when starting the ingnition. Mine does not...

Usually many models with different equipment, they use the same dash to reduce parts inventories, as a result, you may have unlit "accesories" because your vehicle does not have them. The vehicle has a self check phase when you first turn the key to the "Run" position. Everything you car is equipped with that has a monitor light will light up. you may see bleedover light slighlty illuminating things that are not in your vehicle, but they may be used in other vehicle trim levels. You will know for certain when a light bulb is directly beneath the indicated item..

If the lights light up for traction control for example; when you first turn the key to the Run position, your car is equipped with it. If it has it and the light did not light when the wheels spin, there may be a sensor malfunction that should be checked..

Pass key wont turn in new ignition cylinder but dummy key will

The keys probably differ in length. Matching teeth will not reveal this.

Dummy light for cooling system

Hello, the fox coolant warning light flashes when key is first turned on to let you know that the light and its controller are working. On my fox, the controller is shorted and the coolant light flashes every now and then, like it has a personality. Anyway, this information comes from my expirience with foxes and it is backed up by the bentley repair manual. If you need any more advice feel free to e-mail me at Have fun!
