99 Regal GS 3800 supercharged wont crank key in ignition all lights go off and car does nothing help!!!


Sounds like you may have possibly TWO problems here. The ignition key not turning past the run position or even to the run position is most likely a lock cylinder issue and may be fixed by replacing the ignition lock cylinder, As for the power being killed when turning the ignition to the start position, that sounds like a defective ignition switch. these items are two seperate parts. The reason for the turn signal issue may be related to the ignition switch fault.
Hope this helps.

My 1991 gmc safari started but killed in the middle of driving and I can not get it started by turning the key but I can start it by using the old screw driver to the starter trick what is my problem.


neutral safety switch , burned fusable link wire or possibly the ignition switch down on the column is out of adjustment. If you have a tilt column try moving up and down all the way to see if it will start if it does your switch is not adjusted correctly or you may have a broken ignition rack inside the column. The ign. rack is what mechanically pushes the rod to activate the switch when you rotate the lock cylinder .. Check the small wire going to the starter for power when the key is in the start position. BE SURE THE CAR IS SAFELY ON STANDS.

Is there a way to start my car without the kill switch


Hi
Your alarm or engine immobiliser are usually wired into your ignition wire at the back of the dashboard you will probably need to find out where its been joined to your wiring loom a good starting point is to take your stereo headset out and have a look at the wiring behind it as usually alarm technicians go for the quickest route and you have an ignition cable that goes to your stereo
I hope this makes sense and helps you out. Nick

98 expedition cranks when no one is in the vehicle and no keys are in the ignition


Hello, Start by looking under the hood at the starter Relay. Unplug the small wires and your starter should stop spinning. If it does not, then the Relay is bad. If it does not spin continue with the following steps.

You need to put a test gauge on the small wire you removed from the starter relay. You can test with a light or with a Voltmeter. Either way, your goal is to kill the current in this small wire. The small wire gets its power from a series of switches. The Ignition switch can be bad and may be providing full-time power.

Before you replace the Ignition switch, look under the Drivers' dash and see at the top of the brake pedal for another switch. These get hit and broken by feet all of the time. If the switch appears broken or out of place in its holder, correct that problem and observe if the test device shows no power to the small starter Relay wire.

You have diagnosed or fixed the problem and avoided pulling out a good Ignition switch. If the problem is still there, then you need to try a new Ignition switch. You will need to remove the plastic steering column cover and position the Ignition core to either ACC or RUN position to remove the key core. Remember to press under the switch to release a spring-loaded pin.

While you are attempting to remove the Ignition, the Battery will need to be disconnected several times. This is because the Interlocks need power to allow the key to turn, but you do not want full-time power while you have the key in ACC or RUN position.

I hope my Solution is very helpful to you. You should be able to repair your problem with what I have given you.

Took baterry out to charge


The mechanic should check the ignition switch of the car . prepare the equipment to be used then check the ignition switch, check the wires that are connected to the ignition switch that connect to the battery. you also have to check the fuse if the ignition switch is worn out or destroyed then repair or replace.The wires if there are worn out or destroyed wires and fuses then replace , if loose wire connection then reconnect them.But to figure it out the problem is only in the ignition switch and its wires or wire connections.You just have to repair and reconnect the wires and repair the ignition switch.

Radio turns off in starting position


this look like a low battery and every time you try to crank your car it takes more power and kill the main power to the radio
solution # 2 the radio as 2 power wires one is always hot ( with current) and the other is connected to the ignition switch if you have replaced the radio those 2 wires maybe are connected backwards the one that goes to the switch is probably connected directly to the battery and the one is suppose to be always hot is probably connected to the switch if you have the original radio have your battery tested and if is ok then try get a haynes book at any auto parts for you car and try to follow the wire that is always hot normally is a yellow or orange wire
solution #3 this apply only if you car still have the original radio
turn your ignition switch to the on position but don't crank your car and turn your radio on select a radio station then turn your ignition key off and wait 3 minutes then turn your ignition switch on again with out cranking your car and the radio should be in the same radio station you select if this test pass then chances are is your battery getting low and if this test fail then the hot wire has a blow fuse look for the fuse inside the hook let me know what happend and good luck
