2008 escape hybrid won't start when you turn the

I am not familiar with hybrids, but i think when you start, it's starting with the battery, so I think you have a bad connection, check and clean the battery terminals.

I am unabel to get my key out of the ingtion

The car thinks your shifter is still in gear. turn the key back on and then shift it in and out of park a few times, making sure the little button for your thumb pops out all the way when you put it in park. that should release the key.

Good luck

I replaced the ignition lock cylinder in my 92 cabriolet and I turned the key and it started first swing, then I was putting the steering wheel covers back on and it just turned off... When I try to turn...

If it's an automatic check fuse #15 wether it's a stick or automatic you should have power at the red & black wire coming out of your ignition switch when you turn key to start postion and power at the red wire going into switch at all times. if no power coming oit on the red/black wire you need an ignition switch. if there is power coming out of switch try putting car in nuetral (for auto trans). if still nothing you'll need to check for power at small wire going to starter when key is turned to start. if has power then need starter if no power you'll need to check starter interlock relay.

Stuck eldorado key in DTS ignition now car won't start

Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

'91 LS400, trunk will not open. key will not turn, electric latch switch clicks but won't open. valet lock in open position. Tried 1) disconnect battery, reconnect battery, use switch, push down on...

If you hear the sound of the electric latch switch, then it's working but stuck somehow. Just put the key in the switch and turn it to the right and then pull up the trunk or ask someone to help you. it will open. I tried it today and it opened with me. It was stuck from inside by some kind of a broken plastic pieces. Just removed it and now it's working fine. good luck

Ok i changed the crankshaft sensor and it has a nascar flip switch to start it with it will try and try allmost turn over but wont what else could i check

Sounds like you say it's trying to start? Check a spark plug or two to see if their wet with fuel or dry. The compression could be low for alot of reasons, ( flooded, overheated, oil gassed from past flooding). Why does it have a flip switch as the security system has to have the key to let the computer turn on the fuel injection and the spark. Has the truck been checked to see good spark? Has fuel been added to the air inlet to see if it'll start with added fuel? The ingtion switch turns on 6 circuits and 4 of them have to be good to set the engine to runing. The ingtion lock cyclinder the engine control computer and the body control computer and the instrument custer module all have to agree that the right key is in the lock or they will not turn on fuel control and spark management. It's almost impossible to make a 93 or newer dodge run hotwired even the transmission controller has to approve the key and all of these modules have to be of the same VIN and not be dead.

Starter turns over and starts as soon as i let off the key it kills Ive change the starter silinoid and it still dousnt work

The ballast resistor is bad or the ingtion swich is. witrh the key on their shold be power at the ingtion coil. if not check at the ballast resistior it shoud show a test light on all terminals. with slightly different brightness. jumper wire to the positive on the coil from the battery positive shold keep it running. find the broken wire or the bad part with the test light. the starter solind only turns on the spark while cranking. even the key switch can be bad or the wire coming from it.
