That will probably be your ignition switch. you can check to make sure but you have to take it out to test it. The ignition switch is below the steering column. You also need a chart to tell you which terminals are for which system and what your ohms should be. If i had to guess what was wrong with your vehicle i would Say it's the switch since your battery is good. If you haven't checked your fuses yet I would do that first before anything else. I hope I could be of assistance.

1996 Buick Regal turned off put gas in would not start makes no sound when you turn the key no click nothing tried all the tricks any idea whats wrong


make sure car is in park or neutral, if still nothing, make sure battery terminals are clean, just because the dash lights work does not mean there is good enough connection at the battery to start the car. Make sure battery is fully charged. If still nothing, sometimes giving the starter a tap with a hammer will get it going again. Good luck.

Could this be the battery?


This is a bad earth connection . Run a new cable from the battery to the engine or transmission , then run a cable from the engine or transmission to the body . No more trouble.

I would check the key switch first to make sure all circuits have power with the key on.
There is a fuse for the cluster too.

Had problems with starting , sometimes you turn the key and nothing , turn the key on off really fast then you would get dash board lights and she would start . then if you had to indicate it would cut...


This could be a tough one.

My gut instinct tells me the root of the not starting without turning the key back and forth is a ignition switch.

The water loss issue is likely unrelated. Suggest check hoses, hose connections, radiator, heater core, water pump, etc. for signs of coolant leakage.

Good luck with this!

My 2007 GMC Yukon will not start in cold weather. When I turn the key over the lights/dash controls come on, but the engine does not turn over at all. Nothing. Put a new battery in and still does it. It is a random occurance. Would not start for two days this week so I had it towed to the dealership and the next morning it starts without the service dept doing anything??? Bring it home and two days later it does it again??? Any ideas?

I have a 2006 Mitsubishi Grandis. Something weird is going on. The alarm doesn't activate/deactivate. When I turn on the ignition key to accessory, nothing happens. The internal lights do not work. ...


It may start the engine fine, meaning it has a good ground, BUT, the ground from battery to the body is NOT. Make sure that connection is good and clean.

My 1999 Trooper stopped running while I was going 60mph Now it wont start - nothing. All that happens when I turn the key is that the all the indicator lights on the dash board light up.


a defective crankshaft sensor would cause your engine to quit at any speed....but your engine should still turn over...thats the only suggestion I have beside checking and cleaning your battery connections.sorry I can't be of more help
