The most common problem would be your ignition switch in the column. If you turn the key to run or acc and everything works check your starter relay switch and ignition relay. I had the same problem on my S-10 and found it to be a broken wire leading from the alternator. This is not a common problem so i would not worry about that. Be careful starting from silinoid because it will burn out quickly and a hazard of electrical shock.

3006 chevy trailblazer turns over but wont start


That year has not been made yet and we wil be dead if and when it is. 2006 trailblazer could be fuel pump, do a fuel pressure test. CKP sensor scan for rpm, check for codes. Does it crank fast or slow? Try taking a hammer and hit the bottom of the fuel tank while someone turns th key and makes it crank. If it starts replace the fuel pump. See if it is getting spark at plugs by taking a screwdriver and insert in plug wire after you remove from plug and hold just enough away from a metal bracket and have someone turn the key to start and see if you have spark. Do not touch metal part of screwdriver.

I need to replace the ignition switch on a 1999 ford taurus without the key


very simple, insert key in the ignition. Then insert a small phillips head screw driver in the middle hole underneath the steering column.You should feel the screwdriver head hit a hole.Maintain pressure on the screwdriver. Turn the key to the on postion(without starting the vehicle).You should be able to pull the igntion switch out with the key.

My husband got in his ford f150 1990 and went to turn the key and it was like there was nothing there. He figured He needed to replace ignition switch so he did that and still wont start. He put a new...


it could be the safety neutral switch (ignition switch located at the base of the steering column)..try putting it in neutral,reverse,drive then turn the key.could be a fuseable link blown thats connected to the battery cable,could be a starter solenoid,try jumping the solenoid with a screwdriver to see if the starter engages,if not then hit the starter with a hammer,either the bendix cover is rusted out(really typical with 1986-1991)and causing the starter to gum up with rust or oil or dirt so the bendix sticks down,the starter will not spin unless the bendix is up.,or the brushes are worn out and thats what hitting it with a hammer will do,loosen the brushes up enough to start working a little and then you will know if the starter really needs to be replaced.
