    My '91 80 has trouble starting as well. I usually have it die right away after the engine starts about 3-4 times until it actually will stay on.

2001 Bravada wont start. turn key all lights and gauges come on but starter is silent. not even a click. tap on starter it starts. 12 v at battery. whats wrong?

replace the starter as you have a armature/commutator problem
have it checked on the bench at an accredited auto electrical shop commutators/armatures can be bought separately to reduce cost of new starter

Problems starting

It sounds to me like you are looking at the wrong thing. If you needed a battery it would not turn over. Try just turning the key to the on position for a few seconds. If it starts right up you may have a fuel check valve the is not working properly all the time. It has been a long time since I worked on cars so I can only point you in what I think is the right direction possibly. Good Luck

Car sometimes doesn't recognize key and shuts off

Wait for the new key, honda is the only one that can deal with it unless you can find a lock smith that deals with those.

Kia rio wont start

If it's an automatic gearbox vehicle, then check the operation of the gear selector switch within the selector mechanism. Most autobox vehicles will not start unless this switch sends a signal that the car is in either park or neutral.

you have to reset the passcode relearn....Listen carefully...
get in the car, turn the keyall th way and try to start it...just enough to spin the eng a couple reveloutions...let the key return to the run posistion by its self...leave it for 30 minutes..then go back and try to start again..just enough to spin the eng over a couple times..let the key return again to the run position ,,,,leave it again for 30 minutes
this procedure has to be done 3 times... after the 3rd time... see if it will start... if not.. do over may need to hook up a battery charger on low cycle while doing this..unless you can turn your headlights off to keep from running the batt down...
good luck,,,, & Merry Christmas !!! God Bless !!!

Im trying to replace my ignition on my 1997 olds cutlass supreme gls, which is on the dashboard. oh and the key wont turn

Try to unlock by turn the key back towards ya and then try to push the key torwards the start. Make sure ya put the stuff ya took out back the same way ya took it out. If ya do not ya will run into this kinda prob.Make sure all wires are reconnected and so forwth. Before trying to start do not force the key to turn the colomn. It should be like it was before and if it is not then ya got something wrong so start back square one until the key click and moves as it had before.
