It's a no spark or no fuel problem. do you hear the fuel pump humming when you turn key to on position? if you do then pumps working. have you pulled a plug wire off engine and put a screw driver in wire and grounded to motor while turning engine over to see if it's getting any spark? have you checked all the fuses under the hood in the black box? i hope this helps!!

Won't start, battery good, starter good, swapped relays and still won't start


Any issues with the ignition switch itself? They are mostly made of plastic pieces. With the exception of the actual cylinder. Also depending on how long you had the battery issue,it may have damaged the alternator. They tend to go hand in hand,unless caught early enough. The alternator gets overworked due to the weak battery.

I have a 1988 camry and i charged my battery a day ago snd tryed to start it again the next day and it was dead again. Do i need a new battery?


It definitely sounds like the battery has had its day. Unhook the battery from the vehicle, charge it....leave it unhooked over night, and attach next day.... if the battery has life, it could be an accessory in the car is taking the power. if not, replace battery

My jeep won't start or even turn over


you need to check the voltage at the battery when you have trouble. should always remain above 12 volts.
If not then the battery or the connections are bad. first test the battery right at it's lug terminals, then check the terminal connectors. battery or cable or connectors - def sounds like major voltage issue in the battery area!

Van will not start when its cold. it cranks and cranks. once you do get it started it restarts fine. have checked spark and fuel all is good. changed air filter also. no lights come on


I saw something similar to this on a 1991 dodge van a few days ago.. turns out it was the battery. It was odd, because it cranked over fine and had spark and fuel, but would not start. If your battery is good, then confirm that your fuel pressure is ok

The only thing I can think of besides some serious electrical issues is your alternator. It sounds like a weird issue, but the alternator deals directly with giving your car power.

Have you tried jump starting it? Low voltage can cause lots of issues. It could be a bad alternator.

I have towed several of these with same problem. Sounds like to me it needs to go back in for the ignition switch again. Unless it's not going into park. If it's not going into park it would be a shift linkage issue and needs to be adjusted. Chris J.C. Towing & Recovery

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.
