My battery was dead and we have replaced it with a brand new battery and when we turn the key nothing is happening at all. We think it is that security system lock up. is there a way to go around this or do we have to take it to a chevy dealer service department? we have a 2003 Chevy Impala

Hi you could first check the starter motor has not stopped working, you can do this by, getting someone to turn te ignition ( as they would be turning the engine over) at the same time using either a piece of hard wood, or a hammer or anything that will reach the starter solenoid to be able to give it a few swift but firm knocks, if its a stuck starter then it will possibly work, if it is a u/s starter then all you will here is a click click sound.....NOTE!!! make sure no loose clothing or any part of your body is near a part that moves,,ie..cooling fan, and belts...ect ect...hope this helps

I have a 2010 Hyundai Veracruz had dead battery was dead, tried to jump start, no luck battery is fully recharged. Turning on key all dash lights and gauges works but nothing when key is turned on. N


If you are sure the battery is charged and nothing happens when you turn the key you have a poor wiring connection somewhere or possibly an poor connection internal to the battery. First, turn on the headlights, then try to start the car. If the headlights go dim when you do that, you have a bad connection. If they stay bright, you are not completing the starting circuit. The most likely cause is a bad battery post connection. Remove the terminals and clean them to shiny metal then replace and try again. If that does not work try it again with a new battery.

What are the possible reasons my 97 geo metro won't turn over after running the battery dead, then replacing it with a brand new battery ?


blown fuse.
bad wiring

the head lamps work , keys in pocket (by law) and
are #1 first thing to trouble shoot when dead (easiest)

id bet not. and any $10 voltmeter can find this easy.

New battery In mercedes no power


I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

I have a 02 ford windstar. 3.8L does not start or do anything, Has a brand new Battery about a month ago Checked all fuses and they all have power. When you turn the key to start nothing happens, no...


A few things I can think of are the starting circuit of the ignition switch, the neutral saftey switch, the starter solenoid, a fusible link, and a bad connection.

Recently I had a clicking under the hood and could not start my car. I assumed it was the battery so I had it jump started. After replacing the battery and driving it about 20 miles the battery was dead...


Sounds like a fuseable link burned out. If the battery was not disconected while the alternator was being replaced this could have happened. It could have also happened if jumper cables were momentarly hooked up wrong.

When turning key all the way over it simply does nothing what could it be


Hi,
You'll likely need a new ignition switch. (The electrical side) You can confirm this by pulling the lower steering cover when issue is occurring, and using a test light on the black and yellow wire when turning key to "Start" position. If test light doesn't illuminate, replace switch. (Easy)

When trying to start my 2003 jeep cherokee nothing happens. It is like as if the car is not connected to a battery because like I said nothing happens. When I looked under my hood of course my battery was...


Hi just because the battery is new does not mean anything turn on your head light to see if they come on, if not most likely the battery, if you have a volt meter I would check the battery. Now if the light do come on then I would check the fuse for the ignition system, pull the fuse complete out to check if it is blown. These two check I would start with. Please let me know how you make out.
