In the 1995-97 Suzuki Swift/Geo Metro/Pontiac Firefly the engine won't start if the auto. transmission is in any gear other that park or neutral or if the manual transmission's clutch pedal isn't depressed ALL THE WAY, or if you have a kill switch on it. If the car shuts off power to the radio and more specifically if it blacks out the indicators it means that the car is refusing to start the engine, not that it can't start the engine. If you are stepping on the clutch properly or have it in the right gear (auto) and it still won't start you might want to check on any sensors that tell the car where the clutch pedal or gear shifter are. You might also want to check on any electronic anti theft devices you have in the car: if they are worn or damaged than they might be stopping the engine from starting.

I have a 2000 chevy malibu drove it for a few days then the other day went to start it turned the key no dash lights like the battery or any of the others that usually come on the mileage dont come on...


Did you check all the fuses under the hood? That's where the ignition fuses would be. The same "run" wire to the ignition coils, when the key is in on or run, or the same set of run wires out of the ignition switch both to the dash warning lights and gauges, and to the ignition system on the engine, well they're all the same power source, and more so the computer gets power from the ignition switch being on as exhibited by the check engine light turning on when key is turned to on.
It sounds like the ignition switch is either not getting full power in, or it's not sending power out as it should.
Check your other battery power-do you have headlights? That would be entirely separate from the ignition switch, but it verifies that battery power is getting to the fuse and relay block under the hood. Is the cranking speed normal? not too slow?

My 95 sierra dies and won't start. no lights on dash then suddenly lights come on and truck will start. please help.


first check the connections at the battery. make sure there is no corrosion between the cable end and the battery.

When you say it wont start can you hear the starter cranking the engine over or is the vehicle completely dead?

If its completely dead I would check for power to the ignition switch. if there is power than I would check for power out of the switch. If there is no power than possible the ignition switch is failing.

I might be able to get you some wiring info if needed. just let me know.

HELP! My 2000 plymouth neon wont crank and no mechanic i bring it to can figure it out!!


If the headlights and dashboard lights are working but the vehicle still does not start, the ignition switch is most likely the problem. or a bad wire from switch. If your battery checks out, but the starter is still silent, it may be a faulty ignition switch. Turn the key to the on position (not all the way to start). If the red warning lights on your dash don't light up (and your battery connections are clean), the ignition switch is bad. If they do light up, turn the key to the start position. The dash warning lights should turn off at this key position (most cars). If you're not sure, turn on the headlights. When you try to start the car, the lights should either dim (a lot) or turn off completely. If they do, your ignition switch should be ok. If not, the switch will need replacement. check the wires to starter and see if you have power when car is switched on, do this first! good-day! if it cranks but does not start. check to see if spark and fuel, and check all fuses also.

In older cars, the natural wear and tear on a vehicle can lead to ignition switch failure. If the switch is failing, you will probably not hear any clicks from the main relay, which fires the ignition. Check the behavior of the dashboard lights if your vehicle stalls. Alternatively, when the key is first turned to position two, the oil light, brake light, charge light and other warning lights will not function. You can try a test to check the integrity of the ignition switch by turning the ignition key to the 'start' position. As soon as it tries to start let go of the key. Allow it to snap back to the 'run' position and note warning lights. If they go out as the switch snaps back then the switch is faulty. if faulty it will not let power through to the starter to start car. check all fuses first. but sounds like switch.

95 MERCERY VILLAGER WONT START


have you checked to see if the alternator is working? If it isn't the battery is being drained. You may have lights and all but the cranking power is drained therefore you don't have enough juice to start it. So check the alternator and if possible do an obd 2 scan at autozone or advance auto
