You Pontiac should still be covered under warranty so best that you have the deal address this issue. It could be a faulty ignition switch or a faulty safety neutral switch, regardless. Have the dealer address this issue and please keep us posted.

Thank you for using fixya

I have a 2009 G3 and have recently been having the identical problem! I'm going to call for an appointment this week with my local GM shop. Hopefully as you note, it's just something like a faulty switch!
Thanks for the insight! Brad-

SOURCE: 2003 Trailblazer- no power after key stuck in ignition

Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.

SOURCE: 1987 Toyota Camry starter problem

Probably the starter solenoid. I'm assuming it's a standard transmission. Does pushing the clutch down hard make any difference? There is a safety switch on your clutch pedal. If it's automatic, it would definately be the solenoid. And no, pumping the gas has no effect on the starter. It will help to flood the engine though. ( and that's a bad thing)

Make sure to check all of the connections from your battery to the starter and especially check the ground and the body to engine ground.

This is usually the problem.

Thanks,

SOURCE: Car dies while driving, now it won't start sometimes

Could be a fuel pump that is going bad. Some times when fuel pumps go bad they cavitate and pump not just gas but also air. If you get too much air in the line and not enough gas the car won't start. Have a mechanic check your fuel line pressure.

SOURCE: Sometimes The Engine will not Turn over or Start after Key turn

most likely there is a problem with the starter. The solenoid is part of the starter assembly.

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.

if an ignition switch fails, sometimes you can jiggle the key and it will start right up. its very hard to tell. but if you can start it by bypassing the ignition switch, then its the switch itself. go to this site for more detailed info--- aa1car.com/library/1999/cm119948.htm---this page should help. click on top link.

I have an R reg Hyundi accent MVI Coupe and suffering serious stress. sometimes it starts sometimes it doesnt. When I put key in ignition and turn it ....nothing happens. it almost appears as if their is...


I have the same model and year Coupe, and have problems starting it sometimes. I'm not sure it's the same problem you're having, as you say nothing happens when you turn the ignition key. On mine the engine turns over but doesn't start. It usually happens if I've been driving, stopped and then tried to drive off again.
In my case it's the ignition lead - to get it going I have to pop the bonnet/hood, pull apart the plugs that connect the two halves of the ignition lead together, then reconnect them.
I'm guessing the plugs are just slightly loose and/or the contacts need cleaning (haven't gotten around to sorting it properly yet). Loose plugs would explain why it's okay until after I've been driving; presumably the plugs get shaken loose during the drive.

Might not be the same problem on yours but it might give you somewhere to start.
Hope it's of some help!

Some it starts


my 97 geo metro will not start when I turn the ignition key. The radio will work, buzzer etc. I can jump it with another car and it will start and run. If I turn ignition key to start, there is absolutely no crank, no click, no nothing. Could this be ignition module, bad battery, voltage regulator, starter?
