Welllllllllll how do I say this without incriminating myself too much, after furiously mad panic stations on the sunday, it was decided that first thing monday it would be towed to the electricians! as my husband had concluded it was electrical this came after new battery fuses etc.. had been checked and many an hour spent under the bonnet.As we have a kill switch, which I had tried an still did not go also I reminded my husband of this and he screamed at me its not the bloody kill switch @#!*!!? ok, have a GREAT DAY! So come monday morning after getting up early to drop my husband off at work dressed only in my dressing gown jammies and socks and slippers I duly dropped him off and used our pajero for the day which I ended up having to put 10 dollars in. That night he returned home with the subaru and a receipt for work done I ( I had visions of hundreds of dollars worth) but noooooo $54.00 great ah! Cos it was the kill switch !!!!.
We will never speak of this again!!!!! It is often the simple things in life that we overlook? TeeHeeee.

1999 Isuzu Amigo V6 2wd: Car doesn't start always. Turn the key, lights come on, radio on, etc, but no clicking noise, no engine trying to turn over, absolutely nothing. I put in a new battery, but same...


When I have such a problem with my Toyota pickup, I install a button in dash to crank the motor over. Hot wire from the switch on to the button, then from the button to the starter activating wire. My Toy doesn't do this every time, but when it won't crank I just reach down and flip the spring center switch, same as a button, and she cranks and fires up. This is easier than replacing a bunch of stuff that may not be bad or is impossible to get to.

I replaced the battery. When I connected the - teminal the alarm system activated and I can not start the car


Reach under dash by left knee. There is a 4"x4"x1" bx that has a small wire lead with a small reset button attached. just hold that button for about 15 seconds and it should reset the lights and security system. Make sure key is in on position. Good luck and have a great day.

My 1990 subaru legacy lights up but won't turn over~not a sound.


your battery may not be charged enough to crank and start the vehicle or one of your cables may be loose so the connection is not there.

1996 Subaru Legacy No Power At All


Last night I checked the battery and it was still good. I disconnected and then reconn ected both terminals and that brought the power back. When I turned the key the power went out again. I repeated the procedure but did not turn the key. Instead, I took off the knee bolster and tried to wiggle the wires under the dash to see if I could find the source since it seems to be related to the ignition. Nothing cut the power so I started it up and it worked fine except for the check engine light which was flashing that says I have a misfire condition. I drove the car 25 miles to work this morning and will be taking it to the dealer for a better inspection.
