Engine won't start and the wheel is UNlocked and key won't come out of ignition

OMG! I am stuck right now as we speak. My husband called to tell me that the car won't start. I grabbed the manual and walked him through how to jump start it. That didn't work either. He says the car is in Park but the wheel is unlocked and the keys won't come out of the ignition....What could this be? How do we get the damn thing to start???? PLEASE HELP

I think this may be a common problem. Your shifter assembly needs replacing.

My sons1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the gauges light on and would not start like battery was dead. Had it jump started and it started.When he put in park it stalled jumped again and worked.


Sounds like a charging system problem and the alternator may not be working. The gauge light will come on if the charging gauge is showing low so you will look at the gauges. Have the battery and charging system tested

Grab a test light go down to the starter, hook to a good ground and probe the battery cable. If that has power probe the solenoid engage wire( its the little one) have a helper turn the key to start if that gets power replace the starter.

My '03 Stang GT won't start. I turn the key and nothing. It has 30g miles, and a friend said it is probably a fuse, not the battery. A jump start did not help. Any ideas?


I believe those vehicles have a spade terminal on the starter it has a plastic square covering on it grab it and wiggle it and pull and push it than try to start those connectors get corroded and dirty!

Car won't start. There was a clicking sound and the battery voltage was good. I removed the relay switch in the fuse box for the starter and tried a new one. It started right up. Then, that same night,...


I am the type that likes to jump start a car to troubleshoot it. If you jump start the car and it starts that tells you that the starter and engine is good and the problem is in your battery or alternator. If it doesn't start then I take the serpentine belt off and try to turn the engine with a large wrench. If it rotates, then I replace the starter and starter solenoid.

Recheck the fuses. There are usually 2 fuse blocks. One in the car and one under the hood. Refer to the owners manual for locations. If you don't have an owners manual, a trip to your local library in the automtive section, should have a Chilton's or Motor's repair manual with the locations.
Good Luck.
