02 jag x type turns over gets gas has spark turns over starts to hit but want tried starting fluid where to go from here new battery new plugs new alternator timing chain not broke

ok have you checked the cam postion sensor signals?if they are good, next check the inertia switch on the passensger side kickpanel and make sure the switch is deactivated that cuts fuel off to the engine,if the pump is working and all fuses good, then make sure the center security light is not on solid after the inition is turned on to phase two.If this light stays on then its a security issue whereas the inition isnt recognizing the key,If all this works,then go under the hood,disconnect the coolant temp sensor on the passenger side of the engine ,its a19 mm socket,to remove but just disconnect the sensor connector then try and crank it...These will make the s type not run at all...This is a step by step troubleshoot for these cars that I have ran into

96 olds achieva wont start unless daylight running lights come on when ignition switch is turn on

You may have a key that has a transponder hidden in the plastic key head. If the security light is on, that means that you DO have an antitheft feature that is not working properly and is most likely causing your problems. Take a look at this link, it explains the security issue and some symptoms. Along with some DO IT YOURSELF solutions.

I'm having trouble with my ignition on my 01 bravada when you turn the switch all the lights gauges and radio work as they should but car will not start any ideas.

Yes, this is most likely the anti theft security system. This system is KNOWN to FAIL on just about all GM cars from the late 80's to mid 2000's. Check out this link for info on the subject and possible DO IT YOURSELF solutions.

My 1996 nissan quest gxe wont even power solinoid or starter when i turn key.dash lights come on only im positive its the factory security can i reset it

this alarm system is reset with the key being turned in the door, lock and unlock the driverside door and then see if it starts if not then do the same to the pass/side and see if it starts if it doesnt then you may have a bad starter, the best thing to do is check for power at the small wire on the starter if theres power to the small wire with the key in the crank postion and there should be power on small wire if there is then replace the starter, hope this helps.

My 2005 Saturn Ion2 ocassionally refuses to start. There is no clicking noise or anything. The engine doesnt turn over at all. A mechanic changed the battery then the starter to no avail?.....any...

I would check the ignition switch. When it doesn't start, I would check to see if you are getting power to the starter when the key is turned to the starting postion.

1992 Oldsmobile 88 Royale.... won't start, but all lights come on

Try turning the key to the on postion-not crank, just to he postion right before cranking. leave it in that postion for 15 min, Do this three and after the third time go ahead an try to start it. Hopefully this will reset your security for you.

Car wont start second time since i bought recently

Hi centi1999.First of all,from what you discribe,it will NOT be you fuel pump.Accually,the problem that you describe is very common.The security system has a problem.The pass-key sensor will most likelt be the problem.You have to replace the key cylinder lock because the sensor is not sold seperatly.Try this,try to start the car,after you turn the key all the way forward,let it go.the key will stay in the run possition as if the car had started.leave it there.It will take about 5 to 10 minutes for the security light stops flashing.Then turn the key back to the off position,remove the key,then try to start the car.This should reset the security system for a while.But,you will have to replace the pass-key sensor to fix the problem.Good luck.
