    I have the same problem with my 172 cup. I've ruled out the key/immobilizer problem. Ignition comes on I turn the key but starter does not kick in, lights go out on dash for a few seconds when I turn the key but no response from starter motor. This has happened before, a few times but 20 minutes later the car will start. This time however it's been a few days and nothing happenin. The car bump starts fine.

    I am going to try the starter solenoid since the spare key does not work. The lights and all electrics work fine, the car will just not turn over or even try to when I turn the key, so I am going to try the starter solenoid and if not the only other option would be the starter motor.

If the red imobilisor light on te centre of the dash is flashing constantly when the key is in and ignition on its probably a key fault. if the cr is turning over and just not starting its probably the crankshaft sensor. {tdc sensor}

In my experience with a 94 ford f150, it was the cylinoid!! If you had your vehicle checked at a professional auto shop, go get your money back. It is the rules and regulations in most shops that they not only check the battery and starter, but to also check the distributer and the cylinoid as well. I have had my truck for 8-9yrs now and I have always had it annually checked has kept me from walking home when I needed a rig to drive.

Car failed inspection,bulb was gone for check engine light. put new bulb in,has voltage but the Check Engine light on dash wont come on.

Probably won't pass. The light MUST come on when key is turned to on, or else something is wrong-maybe the engine computer or maybe the wire from pcm to the diagnostic connector or to the dash.
Now I see you say the bulb has voltage? May need to look into possible fault with the pcm.

The dash lights stay on, drain my battery, after having it jumped my car wont turn off while the key is out of the ignition until i open the driver door then the engine cuts off. but my dash lights glow...

if the key is out, and turned off, is key in off posistion (look)
if off and you have current drain, that is a problem.
your post is confusing, (car wont turn off, what does that mean)
engine stays running, or just lamps stick one,
be clear what sticks on, and we can fix this easy.
im a retired, ET, we can do this step by step.

if the engine stick on , key off, the ignition switch is bad. period.
and grossly unsafe condition ,if ever.

2003 gmc savanna, wont start, new fuel pump and ignition cylinder, I turned key to on position, let sit for 15 min and still wont start just turns over

Find fuel test valve in fuel rail on top of engine. Take cap off valve. Turn key on. Push down valve with screw driver. fuel should squirt out. If not check fuse fuel pressure relay and bad wires. If fuel does come out, remove a spark plug from engine. Connect plug wire to plug. Ground plug against engine. Crank over engine and look for spark.

My 95 jeep cherokkee wont fire i bought a new coil, rotor button and wires and a crank sensor

Might be the main part, your ecu, which is bad. Does the check engine light show up on the dash when you turn the key to on, before cranking the engine? If no check engine light on the dash, then it's the ecu that's in need of repair.
