Ck the battery terminals. Clean both the battery terminal and the cable clamps, tighten for good electricity flow.

Car will turn over or start


Hi Kay, I'm glad to help! Kay, if you turn the key on and nothing happens at all. In other words: You do not here the engine turning over and sometimes the dash lights and guages do not work. Here's your most likely problem. Your vehicle has what they call a WIN Module which is the same thing as an old style Ignition Switch. When the WIN goes bad it's shuts everything down and nothing happens when you turn the ket to the start position. This WIN will need to be replace at the dealership because they will need to program the WIN and then program the KEYs to the new WIN. NOTE: DO NOT be alarmed if the tell you that you need new keys because they want program to the new WIN, sometimes this happens in fact so often that the manufacture started sending NEW KEYS with the WIN, But, only on some year models. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Kay.

I turn the key nothing happens? I have new battery, I put in a new starter, all the lights and bells work. The starter has been tested it'"s new. I changed ignition relayy switch still nothing It...


I have a 93 pathfinder SE 4X4 automatic transmission that had full power, new starter and battery. Sometimes it will start and sometimes not. By passed starter relay by adding push button start and it started 6-8 times then nothing. I finally figured out that it was the neutral safety or inhibitor switch on the 4 wheel drive shifter. Just an idea..good luck

Turn key all light come on as a normal start. but when key is turned nothing happens. no noise nothing.. keep trying and eventully starts.Sometimes 3 or 4 times.. Sometimes 10 min. later. it can be days...


You didnt list the type of car this is, the most common thing that causes this is the starter, i just had a saturn, the customer had the same problem we told her it may be the starter but cant be 100% sure until it actted up, she didnt want to replace it unless we were sure, so we kept and drove the car around for 5 days and finally the last day it didnt start and it was the starter , same problem turn key and nothing no noise and no start, i would have the starter replaced and go from there, its a mater of time before the car just wont start,hope this is helpful.

Car wont start.charged battery,nothing when i turn the key.


if you hear a loud click and nothing happens sounds like the starter has a dead spot in it. Sometimes tapping on the body of the starter with a hammer will make it crank.

Truck wont start at the starter switch sometimes. I turn the key and nothing happens. I can go to the sylinoid (bad spelling) and start it with a screw driver


Probably a bad ignition key contact (worn out).
You can hook a pushbutton across the + to key wire terminal... the start it like an old fashened car (turn on the key and push the starter button....when the ignition contact fails to "make".

1998 oldsmobile sometimes starts


Battery could be not holding a consistent charge. If not, Voltage regulator, starter motor or starter solenoid need replacing....Bad wire connections to all 3 also possible. Voltage regulator should be least expensive to try through process of elimination
