    SVX are known to have a problem with the neutral safety switch. Shift into neutral and try starting, if it works, then the neutral safety switch needs to be adjusted.

My starter won't stop running after the car startswhat causes this

I need to know year--make--model?
Sometimes you can take starter motor off, lay in on the ground, hook up jumper cables properly from starter motor to battery, at the least, it should kick out drive gear and spin. When cables are removed the drive gear should retract. Could be something wrong with starter? It could be hung-up on flywheel for some reason? Could be a problem with ignition switch?
Usually two voltage circuits to starter motor, one comes from battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the start position. The start position should be spring loaded, when you release the key, it should spring back to run position, so that circuit, at starter motor, is no longer hot.

My ground wire for my starter is sheered off what can i do to fix it? i think the ignition switch stuck when i tried to start my truck and fried my battery and starter. its a 1997 yukon please help

The engine is the ground side of the starter
If your talking some wire you see coming out
of the starter it's self, then you replace the starter
& solve all the control side issues before you turn the
key on the next new starter
The battery may be okey

2004 buick rendezvous sometimes won't start. clicks but won't turn over. replaced starter, battery, and ignition switch. what now??

We just went through this with our 2003 Rendevous. Clicking like crazy but wouldn't start. Replaced the starter but still doing the same thing. Our next step was going to be replace the battery (which tested well) and the ignition assembly. Out of frustration, I hit the top of the hood and the headlights came on!! Further investigaton proved that the problem was a corroded ground wire on the battery. Hope this helps

Sometimes it starts, sometimes it just makes a click sound. can't seem to locate the starter to see if it's just a loose cable.

If you follow the positive battery cable it will end at the starter,
that you already know. Has to be at the back of engine
just before the trans

The clicking is a bad starter solenoid, not necessarily
the starter itself, assuming the battery is okey & cables
clean & tight

1994 ignition problem, battery is charged, sometimes starts when key is turned sometimes does not. I am not sure if it is ignition switch or elswhere.

Could be ignition switch, battery/battery connection, starter, starter solenoid, or starter relay. (phew!) Remove your battery cables and clean the posts and terminals. (There's a really cheap and easy-to-use tool for this that works VERY well. Cheap as in 1-2 bucks.) Get your battery checked, too. Just in case. If you're pretty good with stuff like this, remove the ignition switch and hotwire it. If it starts every time, it's your switch. If not that, replace your starter relay. Cheap and easy. If not that, Get your starter/starter solenoid checked at a parts store for FREE. (You'll have to remove it, but most can DIY.) Good Luck.

Won't start

there is no sensor that controls the starter motor, i suspect the problem lies with the ignition switch, there will be a single thin wire going to the starter motor, this needs to have battery voltage at it when you crank the ignition switch if you do not have battery voltage there then check it as it comes out of the ignition switch, i hope this helps

Car wont start

Probably some faulty wiring or maybe a dodgy fuse which is about to clap out and works sometime but not others. Don't know about Peugeot's sorry.
