Van will not fire turn key off and on several times and it starts


Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Cycling the key on and off several times before you crank it, allows the fuel pump to prime the system.

Have to turn key back and forth several times before car starts


Sounds like either your ignition switch is going bad or you have a dead spot in your starter in either case you have to replace it

Check oil pressure regulator, the likelihood is oil pressure, pressure relief, need multiple times ignition, re-established oil pressure.

Stoped runing andwill not start


If it stopped in a second, the cause is electrical problem. If it stopped more gradually, over several seconds, it is usually fuel related. If you put the key in the ignition and turn it to run, not start, are there lights on the dashboard panel? If you turn the key to the start position, does the engine rotate? Sometimes I have to turn the key to start position several times before it works and the engine rotates.

My 2003 Mini Cooper turns over several times without starting. I shut the key off and try again and it usually starts the 2nd time


you may want to check for a plugged fuel filter. because it sounds like fuel is not build up pressure in lines. to start it on first try. if not that, check fuel pressure from pump. good-day it could be the fuel pressure regulator also. check filter first.

Will not start ... for a month or better it started having trouble starting would click once when you truned the key and you would have to turn the key several time (some times more than others) and it...


It sounds like you need a new starter. Your armature has few dead spots on it and every time you turn the key it moves just a little until you hit a good spot and then it spins and the car starts

Sounds like a bad starter solonoid, you can have this tested with a volt meter when it will not start.Bad solonoids tend to work part of the time, just like the symptoms you have listed.

Wouldn't start. Turned ignition switch. Nothing happened. Interior lights & headlights worked.tried 2 hours later & car started.


Does your security light flash if you turn your key to the 'on' position? If so, this is a Passlock problem. It should restart after 10 minutes. Here`s a possible solution that has worked for me. Have a new key cut from origional key or best condition key you have. Buy some Electronic cleaner and spray lots into the lock cylinder. Then, put your key in the ignition and turn from off to on position several times (5 to 10 times quickly). Then remove your key and spray again and repeat key turning. Do this several times. I don`t recomend any spray that is oil based. I no longer have issues with my Passlock system and I have almost 500 000Kms on my Impala.

96 accord - turn key, nothing happens. bad ignition switch? help!


Could be.

Also the jiggling thing could be a coincidence. :0)

Tell me this.... when you turn the key, do you hear a CLICK?? If so your starter is probably bad.
