Well, if you have a problem with the security system not allowing you to crank, then you have a problem that can be fixed only by the dealer.

Check your key and verify that it doesn't have a dirty or wet resistor on the security ignition key. This is a common problem with this type of security system.

Good luck on fixing this problem.

Car wont start after leaving key in ignition,ie went to start car, but phone rang, key in ignition, now wont start.this has happened my wife on several occasions. starts fine on a push


Check the fuse box for the starter relay, and pull out to check pins for corrosion / bad contact. The fact it start on a bump with the key on leads me to suspect the start / crank position of the electrics. Get a knowledgeable person to run through the crank circuit with a meter, also check the condition of earth straps and starter cables. Could be the ignition switch is faulty?

2004 nissan frontier cylinder wont crank over sometimes


First thing to check would be the starter solenoid-mounted on the starter. In the starting circuit, that is the most high use/high wear item. A tech would wait for the no start condition, then check the solenoid wire for power when key is held in the cranking position. If power is there, it indicates a faulty solenoid. If no power, trace the signal back to the ignition switch-from solenoid to starter relay to clutch switch to ignition switch.
There are contact points (plates, really) inside the solenoid that become pitted and burned from use, and eventually wear down or out.

Installed brand new starter, battery fully charged, and still wont crank. It starts when I kick start it. 1988 nissan pathfinder. What else could be the problem? Relay switch? Or ignition? Please help


Check the ignition switch, and the wiring to the starter solenoid. Get someone to turn the key to the crank (start) position and check for voltage at the starter solinoid. Check the starter relay and all fuses.

Starter wont crank on a 2000 oldsmobile intrigue


Check your manual if you have it. I believe you need to have the key in the ignition in the ON position for about 10 minutes to reset the security system.

IS THERE A FUSE FOR THE ECU ON A 92 EAGLE TALON


I don't think so. I got a 95 and I've done all kinds of electrical checking for various things and to my knowledge there isn't. There's fuses for the ignition and engine along with other electrical items but no specific computer fuse that would turn off a computer. I assume the car won't start?

If your car is simply not starting it could be something as simple as the neutral safety switch if you only hear a click turning the key. Disconnect under left side dash. White and has a green and black wire coming from button behind clutch pedal.

If car cranks but just wont start then could be numerous things. Check the 30 and 40 amp fuses under hood. Make sure battery terminals are connected tight and clean with brush tool if needed. If battery is fine and charged, I assume you have checked, then I'd focus on the ignition system.

ignition switch (in steering column)
neutral safety switch (disconnect above pedal)
starter relay (under radio)
starter solenoid
starter

If cranks then neutral, ignition and relay switches are fine
If clicks then ignition and relay fine but neutral switch or solenoid may be bad

My 04 bmw ignition doest start


If it doesnot crank at all look for starter/starter relay/starter relay fuse. Most probably wiring coming to starter is loose, try to tighten it more (push towards starter). Also I would check antiteft system (if it is provided for your car) as some BMW have immobilizers.
If it cranks no start look for spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, coolant temperature sensor, O2 sensor, fueling system (fuel pump cutoof switch, fule pump relay, fuel filter).
Please kindly let me know if you need more information, or kindly provide me with more details to assist you better
Good Luck
