this question could get lots of banned answers, watch out.
car stated is this a World war 2 jeep (willis?)'
no year,?
no country.? they sell them and make them outside usa,

the car for sure needs service, the only thing active is head lamps
key off, (and horn and alarm)
1: does the car drive? ok.
2: do the head lights work and glow bright.
3: when you do drive is the CEL lamp in the dash glowing (check engine light)
any way its an electrical failure. if car drives ok...
my guess, HVAC controls messed up.
or a damaged Ignition key switch.

Anti theft shorted out.


You should look for the alarm fuse and relay and replace them.
Is it the factory alarm or what brand?

My 96 grand Cherokee wont start.turns but does not start.i need to keep turning ignition on and off several times till i see the gas gauge finally turn on then i can start it.today it didnt start for


try with the antitheft bypass.
the problem seems to be the door switches which are not working giving fasle alarm to anti theft device. use contact cleaners on the door switch with the cabin light active on door open. you may then evaluate wether working or not. check all the doors one by one

When i try to start me 2008 sonata the alarm goes off and the engine will not turn over. what can i do?


Your Sonata is equipped with a "Keyless Entry & Burglar Alarm" system. When the Burglar Alarm is activated, it KILLS the starting system through the used of a relay called the "Burglar Alarm Relay". This mode prevents engine starting with the key.
Solution #1
Disarm the system with the Keyless Remote (key fob) If you don't have this remote (or its battery is dead) replace the battery & try disarming again.
Solution #2
Enter the vehicle & insert the key in the ignition and turn the ignition switch to 'RUN'. Wait 3 to 5 minutes until the alarm stops. You should then be able to start the engine.

Have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose this issue.

Pontiac grand am 2004 3.4 6cylinder installed brand new battery altenator & starter all good car started took it for test drive everything shut off car wont start. lights radio still come on


Sounds like the security system activated or the ignition is bad. If you have an alarm installed remove it. If you don't then replace the ignition switch after checking all fuses in the fuse panel. There is one that can blow and will give you this symptom.

Ignition Problem. I put in my car key into the ignition keyhole and turned right. Heard the click sound then the turning of the key became very loose and can be turned to the right and left easily but...


Sounds like Ignition Switch. Stealer part only for Hundai unfortunately. Pull the plastic cover off the column and you should be able to see the switch , its plastic and held on with a couple of screws.

Ignition troubles


unplug connector at ignition switch, bridge terminal 30 [battery power] on connector and terminal 50 power to starter solenoid. engine should turn over. plastic ignition switch can wear and not make contact. at times the lug on ignition barrel that turns the switch breaks off.

The engine will not turn over


If you car has an alarm try depressing the Valet switch and de-activate the alarm. What happens with car alarms is they are auto activated when the battery is dead and re-connected. Also go to the starter itself and find the solenoid. There are usually one or 2 single wires attached to the rear of the soleniod. One is an ignition bypass and the other is 12VDC from the start switch. Have someone turn the key and check for 12VDC on the wires. Only one of them will have voltrage when the key is turned to start. If you have 12DC on the wire terminal with the key turned to start then you have a bad starter / start soleniod.

Clicking Noise when trying to start vehicle


check your key remote if it is not programmed the alarm will go into the kill switch mode and will not allow you to start your engine Having the same trouble with one of my keys I haven't found a way to reprogram it without calling dealer and paying a chunk.
