No it is probably your ignition switch in the steering column.

Intermittent starter problem, sometimes turns, sometimes not. changed battery, tested bad, starter worked twice, stopped turning. changed starter, still wont turn.


Many European cars have relays that trigger the starter,maybe yours is bad? New battery and new starter? Need to check battery connections to vehicle especially ground wire to engine block. Starter face and flywheel housing have to be clean for good ground connection.
When it won't start do you try key numerous times? Sometimes (rarely) bad keyswitch.

My 1997 chevrolet cavalier (standard) wont do anything when I turn the key to start. The battery is good. It was doing just fine. When I stopped and tried to turn it off the key would not turn off. Finally...


check the linkage rod between the ignition key switch and the electrical ignition switch itself for movement when you turn the key from off to start. if it doesn't move then you probably have a broken ratchet gear or rack gear in the steering column at the ignition key switch. if it does move that you probably have a bad electrical ignition switch.

IS THERE A FUSE FOR THE ECU ON A 92 EAGLE TALON


I don't think so. I got a 95 and I've done all kinds of electrical checking for various things and to my knowledge there isn't. There's fuses for the ignition and engine along with other electrical items but no specific computer fuse that would turn off a computer. I assume the car won't start?

If your car is simply not starting it could be something as simple as the neutral safety switch if you only hear a click turning the key. Disconnect under left side dash. White and has a green and black wire coming from button behind clutch pedal.

If car cranks but just wont start then could be numerous things. Check the 30 and 40 amp fuses under hood. Make sure battery terminals are connected tight and clean with brush tool if needed. If battery is fine and charged, I assume you have checked, then I'd focus on the ignition system.

ignition switch (in steering column)
neutral safety switch (disconnect above pedal)
starter relay (under radio)
starter solenoid
starter

If cranks then neutral, ignition and relay switches are fine
If clicks then ignition and relay fine but neutral switch or solenoid may be bad

Sometimes dead ignition


Connections are the most common either on the battery or the starter solonoid. Next would be a starter, but you would usually get a click down on the flywheel where the starter engaged but could not turn over. Finally an ignition switch, unlikely but contacts there do sometimes go bad there as well.

LED light will not go off...i had to replace battery finally..is this the problem?


I had the same problem it turned out to be my ignition switch of all things... sometimes it would turn on and sometimes not... I called AAA on 4 occasions my regular mechanic could not find anything on the diagnostic test and recommend I go the inexpensive route and replace the battery. It was not the battery I ended up taking it to the dealership the experts to give it a diagnostic and it turned out to be the ignition switch, never had problems since.
