Start up problems.

When I put the key in the ignition, the engine will not turn over. But when I use my remote starter, the the engine turns over. Already changed out the ignition part that the key goes into, still the same problem. Any thoughts.

Hi FrostyRage.
I believe your remote start is jumping where your problem area is. I believe it to be somewhere in the wiring leading away from your ignition switch, best guess that I have.

When I put the key in the ignition it doesn't try to start everything else comes on then shuts off. I drove it yesterday but now it won't work


The remote starter module is not getting an electrical signal when you turn the key to the on position after remote stating the vehicle. When you depress the brake without turning the key on the vehicle shuts down. The remote module thinks the key is off even when you turn it on. There is a loose connection or the remote start device is defective.

Engine wont turn over and no lights with key in accesory position


What about with the key in the on position -do the warning lights and gauges turn on? That would mean the ignition switch has power and can turn on.
Any theft alarm activated, immobilizing the car?
Won't turn over- you mean won't start or the starter won't spin the engine over? If it won't start, ignition spark or fuel problem. If the engine won't crank, problem is in the start circuit- from battery to starter, and from battery to ignition switch to starter. Park/neutral safety switch is in circuit between key switch and starter.

No power to startet when key is turned check relays they r goood can put power to starter and it will crank any idear


will your car start if you put ignition key in run postion and then put remote power to the starter to crank engine? If it will you probably have an issue with the electrical portion of your ignition switch. Check to see if you have power to the high voltage side of your starter relays. If not check for a bad fuse. If so check to see if low side powers up when key is turned. If so it means you are gettintg current from the switch. So keep checking for power all the way to the starter. If not check and replace the ignition switch.

Jeep won't start. turn the ignition key and hear clicking sound in engine compartment. I had a remote car starter installed 2 years ago and can start the car that way. when i started the car with the...


clicking when you turn the ignition on most vehicles could be one of two things. First the selenoid for the starter. Second the batterry is worn out or drained. Since your jeep starts with the remote its not your battery. Lucky for you your remote starter is like having a second selenoid. If you are so inclined you might try to fix it yourself. Open the hood. Have someone else turn the key. Follow the sound. I don't have a jeep of that model to look at but It could possibly be comming from a two post terminal that is realatively easy to change. If you are worried about reassembly take pictures before you start. Clean all connections that look corroded.

My 1994 pontiac grand prix was running fine , i stopped at home and when i went to leave the car started but the stalled out!! I then tried to start it again and it barely turns over but will not start!


Not an expert by any means, but I had a similar problem.
Everything was fine until one morning (it was a bit chilly out in my defense) I used my remote starter to warm up the car before leaving.
I forgot I had used the remote and hit the brake to shift into drive. Engine stopped (obviously with no keys in it!). I thought I could just put the keys in and go, but ignition would not catch.
I've actually made that mistake a few times before, but that day, for the first time ever, it prevented the engine from starting for a good 2 hrs.
Really was no solution. I just let it sit and kept trying every 30m or so with both the key and remote starter. The remote starter finally got it going again and this time I followed the instructions (put key in and turned to "On" position).
Since then, it has started up as usual.

Sometimes The Engine will not Turn over or Start after Key turn


most likely there is a problem with the starter. The solenoid is part of the starter assembly.

If the starter does not turn the engine over you will get no spark. Lets start over. You turn the key , does the engine turn over ? Does it turn over and not crank up and run?

Car starts with remote starter. The start procedure with key?


Well, it sounds like your ignition switch is bad or the remote starter you have also has an alarm with a starter immobilizer. Do you have the owners manual to your remote starter? If not you can always remove the immobilizer part of the alarm by hooking the start wire back together from the ignition switch that is cut when you hook it up.

2000 Chevy Blazer Won't Start


You can check the manual that came with the Remote starter.
If you do not have one try look it up on line.
You can try call the people that install that kind of remote starter.
Some started do a lot more than start your car and the only way to know is to look at the manual.
You are trying to find out if it is has a ignition kill command.
