Try turning steering wheel and then turn ignition. It should work, if not, the ignition cylinder may need to be changed out.

My ranger shuts down randomly and then wont restart anywhere from 30 minutes to more then a few hours iv tried the enersha switch and fluid levels im thinking its probably a sensor


This sounds like it could be a fuel pump that is failing. As you drive it heats up and once it gets to hot it stops working and then you will have to wait for it to cool down before it will start again. Driving around with a full tank of gas can help keep the pump cooler for longer periods of time but it will need replacement. I hope this helps you.

What a drag is is to have your vette come home on a wrecker!

Subaru Legacy 1995, will not start. Battery is fine, replaced battery connections; fuel filter, spark plugs and wires about 1 year old. Engine turns over and over, and over, just can't get it to ''fire,''...


was the check engine light on? have it scanned for a code if it was. remove the timing cover just enough to peek and just make sure the timing belt isnt broken. do you smell gas coming out of the exhaust while cranking the engine for 10 seconds? if not it could be gas related. or pull one of the plug wires off a spark plug and hold it a 1/4 inch or a little less away from the engine ground (ANY METAL PART OF THE ENGINE)see if it archs while cranking for 5 seconds, if it does not arch suspect that the camm and or crank sensor is a bad. PLEASE NOTE: this information is based on what you have told me. however if you have it scanned and give me the code pulled i will be better equipped to help you. if u run the tests i gave you and come up with nothing you may have to take it to your local technician for more complex tests to be done.

If this is a security issue you will have a code stored. Best bet is to get the PCM data and codes before doing anything else. If you don't have the knowledge or information to work on this car there is no way for the home mechanic to do anything.
