Check the neutral safety switch, your vehicle should have it mounted on the steering colum. A purple wire runs to this switch from the starter and a yellow wire runs from the neutral switch to your ignition.

I have a 94 chevy g20 van w a 350 when I turn the key there's nothing not even a click. I can get the starter to turn underneith with a screw driver but it won't engage just free spins

Assuming you have a good battery there is a small wire that goes to the battery terminal on the starter (big red wire) That is where you get power to ignition switch. this is a fusable link wire If you pull on it slightly and it streches it is burned into.Resist the urge to replace it with a non fuseable wire, it is at any parts store

I have a 2000 chevy malibu ls. at first..we just thought that the battery needed we bought a new battery.. then it still wouldnt we bought a new starter and replaced that..and it...

DO you hear a clicking when you turn the key to start? Solenoid relay make a click sound when energized.
If the solenoid is not mounted on the starter motor then it will be near the battery
The key switch sends power to the solenoid. the solenid is a big remote controlled switch,and it takes power from the battery to the starter motor

My car won't start at all I just replaced the battery still nothing. It won't turn over at all..

Check to see IF the battery is fully charged, the cables are on the correct posts, also check the starter solenoid, the cable going to it..perhaps a fuse relay is used between the starter and key switch?? or bypass the key and use a jumper cable from ground to the starter itself, if it shows movement, the solenoid could be the problem?

When I turn the key it only clicks, starter does not engage

It's either a bad battery (low on charge) or a loose ground wire. If you are SURE that the battery has 12 volts (yes, even a low battery will run your lights, radio, door ajar chime, etc., but won't have enough to start the car). If the battery is fully charged and your volt meter shows 14.4 volts (fully charged battery reading), then it's a ground wire. There are two locations. The negative battery cable itself on the battery, and the location on the frame or engine where the cable connects to.If these are ok, check the positive cable connection on the starter.

1994 C280 wont start

You left the key too long in the ignition switch. This sent an alert as if it were being stolen. Remove the key from ignition. Lock all doors. Wait about an hour or so. When you open the doors, put your foot down on the gas pedal and release. Put the key into the ignition and turn the car on.  Make sure you have the shift in "Park" position.
