Where is the safety shut off for a 2003 Pont Aztek


There is no safety shut off switch .First off you say it still won't crank , I'm assuming you mean it won't start an run . If you turn the key to the start position an the engine spins ,that is referred to as the engine cranks . You have a no crank - no start or engine cranks - no start . A fuel pump would have nothing to do with a no - crank -no start problem . If the engine is cranking an not starting check for spark at spark plugs . Is there a security light lit on the instrument cluster ? a anti-theft system problem will cause a crank - no start problem . A short on the five volt reference circuit will cause a crank - no start . A shorted map sensor , shorted TP - throttle position sensor

Clutch start safety switch problems


ok before you change the switch try taking the wire off the switch then with the car in neutral jump the wires and try start your engine once it start you know you have to replace that switch

My 2004 Rx-8 will not start. It will not crank over and it has a full charge on the battery. I was having some problems when i engage the clutch it would take 4-5 seconds to start cranking over and now im...


think its a sensor on the clutch pedal ,a isolator switch but to be sure ask a local mecahnic to give it the once over to confirm my idea as to what could be wrong

I have a 2003 Saturan Ion that won't start


Hi, this is what you should do when your car won't start. Diagnosing a no-start condition requires a logical approach to figuring out what might be preventing your car from starting. First, if the engine won't even crank over when you turn the ignition to START, your car obviously won't start.
When you turn the ignition key to start your car, voltage from the battery flows through the ignition switch to the Park/Neutral safety switch and/or brake pedal or clutch pedal safety switch (you have to push the pedal down before the circuit will complete) to the starter relay or solenoid. When the relay or solenoid is energized by voltage from the ignition switch circuit, it closes a contact that routes more power from the battery directly to the starter to crank the engine. The starter motor spins, pushes the starter drive gear to engage the flywheel and cranks the engine.

If the engine fails to crank, there is a fault in one of the components in the battery/ignition/starter circuit. Check it out.....
  • Low battery (Check battery voltage, recharge if low, or jump start with another vehicle or battery charger).
  • Loose or corroded battery cables (Inspect, clean and tighten BOTH ends of BOTH battery cables).
  • Bad starter relay wiring connections or ground connection (Inspect, clean, tighten wiring connections).
  • Bad starter relay/solenoid (Check for voltage at relay, if relay has voltage but there is no "click" when key is turned to start, replace relay).
  • Bad starter (Jump battery voltage direct to starter to see if it spins, or remove starter and have it bench tested at auto parts store).
  • Damaged starter drive or teeth on flywheel (Remove starter and inspect drive gear and flywheel teeth, replace damaged parts if necessary).
  • Bad ignition switch (Check to see if voltage reaches starter relay/solenoid when turn to start. If not, check for open P/N switch and brake or clutch pedal switch. Replace ignition switch if defective).
  • Open P/N safety switch, or open Brake Pedal Safety Switch (automatic transmission) or open Clutch Pedal Switch (manual transmission). Bypass switch with jumper wire to see if engine cranks, or use test light or voltmeter to check for voltage passing through switch when ignition is turned to start.
  • Engine seized due to bearing failure or internal damage (Use socket and long handle to see if engine can be turned by hand, if not engine is locked up).
  • Engine hydrolocked due to coolant leak from leaky head gasket (Use socket and wrench to see if engine rotates, remove spark plugs and see if coolant comes out or engine can not be cranked with plugs out).

98 Jetta won't crank


is it a manual tranny. sometimes the safety switch that tells the car not to start if the clutch isnt pressed go bad or the plug on the clutch lever pops off. the switch is under the dash connected to the clutch lever the plug is on the other end that pushed the switch pin in.

97 Jetta will not start


Sounds like there's no spark. Change the ignition coil. This is a common solution for cars that won't start due to lack of spark. To check for spark, pull a spark plug wire and hold it near the manifold and have someone turn the key to crank. If you don't see an arc of spark coming from the wire, this would confirm your spark problem. Hope this answers your question.. Best of luck.

Hi! i think you must describe more problem symptoms;
DESCRIPTION The starting system includes the battery, starter motor, solenoid switch, ignition switch, inhibitor switch(A/T), ignition lock switch, connection wires and the battery cable. When the ignition key is turned to the start position, current flows and energizes the starter motor's solenoid coil. The solenoid plunger and clutch shift lever are activated, and the clutch pinion engages the ring gear. The contacts close and the starter motor cranks. In order to prevent damage caused by excessive rotation of the starter armature when the engine starts, the clutch pinion gear overruns. http://hmaservice.com/viewer/dispimg.asp?path=/data/Passenger/HY/HMA/ENG/SHOP-images/HY-SM13-IMAGES-ENG/ebkd010a.gif INSPECT SPARK TEST 1. Remove the spark plug cable. 2. Using a spark plug socket, remove the spark plug. 3. Remove the ignition coil. 4. Install the spark plugs to each spark plug cable. 5. Ground the spark plugs. 6. Check is spark occurs while engine is being cranked. 7. Using a spark plug socket, install the spark plugs. 8. Install the spark plug cable and ignition coil.
