Clean both battery connections by removing the connectors and cleaning the posts and connector interiors with a cleaning wire brush from your auto parts supplier. Wash your hands afterward to prevent mysterious holes in your clothes. Hope this helps!

If the key will not turn it is possibly associated with the steering lock. Try turning the steering wheel back and forth while trying to turn the key. If that does not work, it sounds like you may need a new ignition tumbler.

This one has stumped everyone. Any suggestions folks?

My ignition cylinder is jammed and i cant turn the key to start the car its a 2001


One thing you can try is spray cleaner and lube into the key hole, then work your key in and out to mix it up, then put your key all the way in and tap it lightly with a small hammer, then jiggle the key back and forth until it turns. Note: sometimes this works sometimes it doesn't. Caution: If you get it to turn do not turn it off again, remove it and take it to the dealer to make you a new one. If it never turns you will have to tow it to the dealer or call a locksmith.

Pt wont start or turn over


try to get a jump from a friend and see what happens, does the same, faulty starter, may need replacing, try to use small hammer and tap lightly on the starter couple time and have a friend start the car while you tap lightly on it. check ignition switch where you stick the key in. stick the key in the ignition and turn the key back and forth jiggle and wiggle it and see if your igniting will make contact. do it several time to test and see if its the ignition problems, this part is not cheap to replace.

Sounds like a short somewhere. Check the wiring around where he put the radiator in and make sure nothing is pinched, chafed, pierced or otherwise out of place.

Turn the key but nothing happens all electrics


Not all replacement parts are good. I would guess that the new ignition switch is bad. Its also possible that the wiring harness is loose where its connected to the ignition switch. You could try jiggling the wires.
