Sounds like the park pawl switck assembly located in the selector assembly in the car or on the side of the transmission could just be out of adjustment

I blew some fuse replacing battery.


Check your battery and starter connections. Are they all clean and tight, and correctly situated? Make sure no corrosion impedes electrical power.

Doesn't sound like you blew any fuse. You might have to look at a wiring diagram to test the starting system. With the key held in start, there should be power on the small wire at the starter solenoid (mounted on the starter motor). That is a good place to start-use a test light or voltmeter to test. If the small wire shows power, have the starter tested at a parts store. If no power with key held in start, then you do need a wiring diagram. The starting system is not all that complicated-it is pretty straightforward.

Turns over but won't start


I would start checking fuses for power. It could be a battery cable issue or something in the fuse box. The dash lights would not be powered thru the key switch, but the other stuff would be. Provided the key switch is getting power for accessories.

Go to your computer search for fusebox diagrams and find out where the starter relay is, most likely its a square black box inside the under hood black square fuse block.

Have your battery tested to start the fact that the radio and lights work are not an indicator that the battery is good. if in fact battery is good and you hear a click and nothing else then make sure you got power at starter from ignition switch and power going to the actual starter motor while some one holds the key in the crank position. Do this safely. the starter should have power on the B+ terminalwhich comes directly from the battery. It also gets power when in the crank position to engage the solenoid in the Igniton terminal when engaged the power from B+ is tranfer to the the starter motor which in turn turns the engine if this isnt happening for you replace the starter

This sounds primarily like a starter on it's way out. The next time the starter will not engage the first time, have someone else hold the key into the start position and you tap the starter with a hammer and if it engages, replace your starter. Let me know if you need instructions on how to do so.

Make sure that the starter solenoid is being activated and getting power to the starter. All battery connections and starter motor connection must be squeaky clean since any resistance in a 12 volt system may have a serious impact on power flow to device. Ignore the radio, heater etc during startup - the car is designed to turn them off when you turn the key to start so all power goes to the starter motor only.

Engaging the Starter


Check to make sure that when you turn on ignition switch the solenoid is receiving power to engage the pinion gear and feed power to the starter motor. It is new so I suspect it is not receiving juice. U may have some bad connection causing the intermittent issue. PIA.
