91 Mitsubishi Pajero, wont start get power to the power solenoid when turnig the key. What would be causing this problem?


Check the start fuse first. Then try to start it neutral, not park. It could be the fuse, the safety neutral switch, or the ignition switch. My guess would be the neutral saftey switch.

My 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee wont start sometimes, but if I put it in neutral then try to start it..It starts .. What is the problem with my baby.......


Test/Service/Replace

The circuit on newer cars with automatic transmissions has a neutral safety, or neutral start switch installed between the ignition switch and the starter. The ignition switch cannot operate the starter motor unless the transmission is in park or neutral.
Late model vehicles with manual transmissions have a starter/clutch interlock switch that requires the clutch to be depressed to the floor.
Neutral Safety Switch
Normal operations of a neutral safety switch provides a quick check for the adjustment of the gear selector linkage.
  • To do this, move the selector slowly until it clicks into the PARK position.
  • Turn the ignition key to the START position.
  • If the starter operates, the PARK position is correct.
  • After checking the PARK position, move the lever slowly toward the NEUTRAL position until the lever drops at the end of the NEUTRAL stop in the selector gate.
  • If the starter also operates at this point, the gearshift linkage is properly adjusted.
  • This quick test also tests the adjustment of the neutral safety switch.
  • If the engine does not start in either or both of these positions, the neutral safety switch or the gear selector linkage needs adjustment or repair.

CAUTION
Since you must work under the vehicle to adjust most shift linkages make sure you properly raise and support the vehicle before working under it. Also, wear safety glasses or goggles while working under the vehicle.
A voltmeter can be used to check the switch for voltage when the ignition key is turned to the START position with the shift lever in PARK or NEUTRAL. If there is no voltage, the switch should be adjusted or replaced.

Turned the key and the car did not start, car was not firing and no noise from the starter ... then turned the key and the car started ... went out for drive and came home ... turned the key again and...


Hmmm it could be the ignition itself, sometimes the inside parts wear out and do not engage as they should. The next indicatioin that its your ignition is the key will stick in it from time to time. Als, I know this sounds wacky, but when it wont start, put your foot on the brake, put the car in neutral and try to start the car. See if this works also.

I have a 96 cavalier.it wouldnt start by using the ignition key,so i shorted the solenoid and it started...got home and it still wouldnt start,so i did the same thing and it started,then all the warning...


it can be the ignition switch or the neutral safety switch. put the transmission in neutral to see if it will start, if it does then the neutral safety switch is bad. if not then check your ignition switch

Key wont start engine


is the starter turning?then it is a fuel or ignition problem.if there is no starter action,it could be the safety neutral switch,put it in neutral and see if it turns over.,or a dead or defective battery or connection.also,the car has an immobilizer that kills the starter.
if the key is a copy with no chip,the car will not start

I put the key in the ignition and turn it forward i see my lights come on and radio comes on but when i try to turn key to start the car it wont turn


The solution lies in the interlock with the shift linkage. Make sure the transmission and therefore the shift colomn make it into park or neutral.

1996 Bravada wont start (no response to key turn) and key stuck


battery is dead, battery cables are loose, or your vehicle is not in park all the way. Put it into neutral and try to start it there.

Key stuck in ignition


Under the steering column is an access plug. Remove the plug and insert a small shaft driver into the hole and push up gently, the key will release.
