With the gauges going to zero it's an indication the battery don't have a good charge or the battery cables need cleaning, tightening. In other words when you turn the switch over, all the components are draining the little power it has or you have a bad battery cable connection.

2002 chevy corvette wont turn over


first ensure good baytery and connections both at battery and connecting points . check all fuses associated with starting and security ignition etc... check dash lights in run position if on proceed if off look into that first. check to see if the security light comes on for a few seconds and goes off. if it does then proceed to start/ if security light stays on or flases continiously then look into security issue. if when key is in crank over or start position listen to hear if you can hear starter relay/ solinoid on starter try to enguage if not trying to start check neutril safety and or clutch swich is working etc if all this is checking out ok use test light and see if when in start position there is power at solonoid wire( the small wire on starter by itself) if not try jumping power to it bu make sure in park and or neutril position or car may leave you if starts not a funny seen!! good luck!!

My 2000 corvette won't crank up---no lights will come on-----nothing works in dash, not even the radio


I would take the battery cables loose and actually verify battery is not leaking. If "security" is causing no start then you can tell by watching the security lamp on dash. It should be on solid when key is turned to run if it is part of your concern. also sounds like you could have a body control module problem it controls the interior lamps which may explain clicking you heard and also controls the security.

Keep us updated.

Car turns over.. wont ignite .. gages r reading zero!! Fuel pump or sensor??!


fuss ok? how about fuse link ?any light in cluster? when you turn ignition key to ''on'' position your dash lights should come on like engine , air bag , brake, etc and should turn off in few seconds if they dont come on, check the fuse panel for blown fusses. also check them for power with key on most of them should have power except a few that only power up when the engine cranks or runs. the fuss links are special pieces of cable that feed the susses they're designed to break when overheated and are on the positive battery cable in the starter side end . if the lights in the dash work as noted the security system may be active .

1990 Corvette,s fan comes on when the key is turned but car wont start. THANK YOU !


Do the lights come on (dash)? Is the battery up? Is it in park? Try moving the gear selector through the neutral range while holding the key in the start position. If it cranks, the neutral safety switch is out of adjustment or going bad. If the dash lights go out when you hit start, the battery termanals need cleaned (baking soda & hot water & a brush). If the dash lights never come on, do you even have a battery and is it hooked up (including the ground strap between engine and frame)? Ray (garage owner)

2001 chevy impala security light keeps coming on


This is a problem with chevy vehicles that have the system theft light. after a couple of years of using the key, the lock tumblers inside the ignition switch tend to wear out and so causing the system to think it's being stolen. Now you have to put the key in and turn the ignition to the on position, without cranking the car and leave it for 10 minutes until the theft light goes out. Very annoying especially if you're in a hurry. The dealer cost to repair the ignition switch goes for about $600-$800. that includes re-teaching the key.

My pontiac grand am won't start and the starter goes like its gunna start but it won't turn over also the secerity lite is flashing, i need help it is the only car i have and i can't afford to buy a new...


Hi. I have a 99 Pontiac Grand Am. I've had that problem before. All I did was...whenever the security light would flash...and the car wouldn't start...I would take the key out...and just sit there and wait for about 10 to 15 minutes. Then the red light would stop flashing....and the car would start. That would happen about 2 times a year. Now I'm having trouble getting it to start. It's trying to...but won't turn over. My mechanic put a new computer....but now he doesn't know what is wrong. Please help. Thanks.
