Its possible that you have two choice to check:
- Ignition Lock cylinder go to bad (located in the ignition switch)
- Neutral Safety Switch adjust (located on top trans)

Additionally, check wiring and harnesses connections. Keep us updated.

KEY WONT TURN IN IGNITION


OK, obvious first: turn it the other way. Don't laugh, I've done this.

Otherwise, barrel is jammed. Get a new barrel, dismantle the steering column and replace the existing one. You'll now need two keys: one to unlock the car and one for the ignition. You won't be the first.

My car has all the juice but when turn it over it won't even try to start but lights and dash all light up it says security in the message box it was very rainy yesterday when the problem began


I have this same issue - I've researched it to death. I've been told it everything from the BCM (body control module aka computer) to a bad ignition switch to a loose ground. The cost to getting it fixed runs into the hundreds of dollars. Fortunately it comes and goes and is not a permanent fault on my Impala. The security indicator lights because the computer thinks the car is being stolen. I swapped keys and it does seem to help but it still crops up now and then. The easy solution is to turn the key to the off position and (this is very important) wait no less than 10 minutes. Turn the key and your vehicle should start. 10 minutes is the time it takes the system to reset. During that 10 minutes reset period don't open the doors or turn the key at all. Hope this works for you as it continues for me.

1995 geo tracker won't start. I've replaced everything except the ignition switch. It used to click when i turn the key, now it won't even click.


DISCONNECT YOUR BATTERY AND RECONNECT, THIS SHOULD RESET THE BRAIN.

ALSO...WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, LISTEN TO HEAR IF YOU CAN HEAR THE FUEL PUMP COME ON...IF NOT, GUESS WHAT? HOPEFULLY NOT!... BUT,YOU MAY NEED TO REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP, IF YOU CAN'T HEAR IT WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, AFTER YOU'VE RESET THE BATTERY!

HOPE THIS HELPS!

THE IGNITION KEY WON"T COME OUT> I"VE TRIED


Under the steering column there is a small plastic piece that can be removed from the lower cover. Remove that piece. the hole will be big enough to put your finger in. If you look you will see the park lock cable where it attaches to the ignition lock cylinder housing. Push/pull lightly on that. It will move in one direction. As soon as you feel it move turn the key to the off position.
