Sounds like the key is still in the on position. put in park and jiggle the steering wheel and try to turn the key back to the off position. that will allow you to remove the key. of course that doesn't address the no start issue. check the normal things, battery, cable end connections for tightness and freedom from corrosion, etc. no lights sounds like either a faulty battery connection or a drained battery.

How do I disable alarm 1993 Isuzu trooper? It will not start. Engine just clicks. It wouldn't even start when tried to jump start it.


I don't know how to disable the alarm for your Trooper. With most cars however, if you open the drivers side door with the key, and insert and turn the key to try to turn it on (even though it won't start) that should disable the alarm.

It sounds like your battery may be completely dead and needs to be replaced. ORielly's auto store will check /charge your battery for free. You'll just have to unhook the battery and get a friend to take you.

Sounds like a dead starter...try this: get a helper to hold the key in the start position. While they are holding the key to start, smack the starter with a small hammer. If it starts, you need a starter.

What is wrong when you turn the key to start and the radio and all the instruments turn on but the starter doesn't click and the engine doesn't turn on even after trying to jump start it


Dead battery

Dangerous practice to try & jump a dead battery

The battery cables could be loose at either end or corroded internally

Most likely the battery is worn out, if original to car
since it was new, or the starter solenoid is worn

You do not want to jump any vehicle made after the
year 2000 or your asking for possible problems with
todays electronics.

You need a good battery that has been tested & fully
charged, then only jump with a jump pack,not another car

I have a 2006 Nissan Sentra 1.8 and it is not starting. I checked out my Check Engine light and it said my Cam Shaft positon sensor is bad. So I replaced it but I think I fried my starter trying to kick it...


Sounds more like a dead battery. The one click you hear is the starter solenoid.
Turn on your headlights and try to start if your headlights go real dim your battery is dead.
If they stay bright then it could be your starter

Batterie died after trying to jump start it my car was dead i plugged it in to charge i turn the key and the lights work the car wont even click over when turned ignition to start


Make sure you have the car properly in Park with lights off and try. If there's no clicking you either have a very loose terminal on the battery or the battery is no where near charged up enough. Try to jump start with someone wiggling the wires for the jumper cables. Once it starts clicking, leave the wires alone and let the battery accept a charge about 10 minutes while the other car is hooked up and then try again.

Won't start, clicking noise even after I turn the key back. 07 f450.


Sounds like your battery has one or more dead cells in it. If everythings work and then when you try to start it it won't start it is most likely a dead cell. Before changing batteries, clean the posts shere the cables attach to the battery and tighten grounds attached to motor and battery.
