The ignition has locked - unlock it by rotating the steering wheel left/right until the key turns.
Don' try to force the key - you may break it off in the ignition.

Possible neutral safety switch failed if its an automatic, or inhibitor switch if standard trans. Does it have an alarm ? Did you get the ign switch in properly, if its the style that mounts down low on the column,loosen the screws and slide it back toward steering wheel and recheck for start

My 2005 Suzuki Fore za will not go into gear. starts and sounds fine. won't let me put it in gear.

if this is a standard trans. the clutch slave cyl. may be at fault. if this is a standard trans. the shift interlock may be at fault. this can be bypassed by using a key located left of your shifter stick in console models.or loosen the console and manually disconnect the device.

How can you tell if your netural start switch is bad on a standard trans on1993 trooper

Well a standard shift model would have a switch on the clutch not the trans. The engine would not crank if the clutch switch was faulty.
A standard shift trans would have a backup light switch.

98 chevy cavalier wont start with key but can start it by shorting out starter turning the key and it does nothing battery good

What you need to find out is at the trans range switch.See if you are getting power at the yellow wire when you turn the key to the run position.This is in slot G at the connector on top of the transmission.This part can be done with the connector unplugged.The next part it has to be plugged in and you have to back probe the purple wire.This is terminal E.If you have standard trans then the colors are the same but the terminals are A and B out of the clutch pedal switch.If you have power going in the yellow but not coming out the purple then replace the trans range switch or clutch pedal switch.If you don`t have power at the yellow wire then replace the ignition switch.Hope this helps.Good luck.

When i turn the key to start my 94 chevy truck, nothing happens. the battery is good, the lights do not dim when i turn the key. Could this be the ignition control module?

if you have a standard transmission,check the switch on the clutch pedal,if you have an automatic trans,check the purple wire on the solenoid while a friend tries to start it to see if the power is getting to the starter,if it is replace the starter,if not check the starter relay first,then the neutral starting switch.
