I had the same problem. I just gave the battery terminal cable clamps a push & twist to get me started. When i got home, I removed them, cleaned them & replaced them. Good to go.

Why does nothing happens when key is turned to start?


You have a faulty ignition switch relay. It's responsible for using a low voltage signal (key in start position) to send full battery power to your starting circuit.

Electrical problems


Same thing is happening right now on a 2002 Monte Carlo. When the key is simply turned to ON, all of the lights on the dash starts blinking rapidly. When I attempt to turn the car over, there is no CLICK or anything from the engine - nada. Ignition turns and the dash goes dark, as if it wants to TRY to start - but nothing happens.
But, when I press the brake pedal (and the key is just sitting in the ON position), all of the blinking lights stops flashing and just stay lit. Therefore, I changed the brake switch, thinking it might make a huge difference. Didn't really help at all. When the key is turned, you can hear the fuel pump engage and everything seems to be ready to go. But, the car won't start (it will only start when it feels like it)...hit and miss, pretty much.
Does anyone know the TRUE solution to this issue? Does the ignition need to be replaced in order to get this car to crank over

1991 caddillac seville car ingntion turns but car wont turn on all the electrical lights come on


Look for a light on the dash that says antitheft or security. These cars had issues with this system failing and disabling the starter. If you see this light, go to this link. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

All the dash warning lights lit up for about 10 seconds


I think you got this one! An electrical short for those systems would have all read as failures during the time of the short. A relay controlling dash lights going bad could also be responsible.

Keep an eye on things and see if the problem manifests itself again.

You may also want to keep a spare relay around just in case! Although, in a pinch, one of the accessory relays that is the same can be swapped to keep you running till you find a parts store.

Good luck and be careful.

When this happens and the key is in the Ignition position, do the dash lights, etc come on? Could be the ignition switch is bad, and this is and easy way to tell. If the ignition is on and when we go to START, nothing happens, I would replace the starter/solenoid next.

No electrical power to engine


check you fuses and clean your battery terminals, you might have a relay that controls you ignition. or could be your coil pack.
