The switch is connected to the shift lever and is located at the bottom of the steering column between your feet. It has slots to adjust it. On some models the switch is on the steering column where it comes out under the hood. I hope this helps you.

1998 chevy asto van wont crank or turn over


Turn the headlights on and watch them while the key is turned to start. If the lights go out, one of your cables or connections at battery or starter is not good. If lights dim a lot but stay on, possibly a bad starter, it needs testing. If lights aren't affected by cranking position, turn lights off, pull the small wire off the starter solenoid, hook up a test light to ground and to the solenoid wire. Light should come on when key is held in crank. If it does, likely a bad starter solenoid. If no light, then the start circuit from ignition switch to starter solenoid is not working. Check for power out of ignition switch on the start wire with key in crank, to begin with. If powered, switch is good, need to check if neutral safety switch is good, and then check or swap in a new starter relay.
Post back with any results.
Good luck.

Van will not crank over, seems to have no power to the starter


Battery? If OK, turn the ignition switch to START and listen for a click indicating the starter relay is closing. If it clicks, the starter may have failed. If no click, check 10A CRANK fuse 8 in the instrument panel fuse block. If OK, check 40A IGN-A fuse in the underhood fuse/relay center. If OK, check for 12V at the top of the IGN-A fuse. If OK, the ignition switch, the park/neutral position switch (shift quadrant), or the starter itself are the only other possibilities

Van wont start. no power


Maybe the starter or starter solenoid is bad. First, make sure connections at battery and starter are clean and tight. Old school method: turn headlights on, and (if good and bright) observe them while someone turns key to crank. If they dim noticeably and starter makes no sound, likely the starter has failed. If you observe no difference in headlight strength, then likely the starting circuit from ignition switch to starter solenoid is not working. You could take the wire off starter solenoid and see if it has power there while key is in crank position. If you do have power there, starter needs to be tested, or the solenoid is bad. If no power to the solenoid when cranking, then the circuit from the ignition switch to the solenoid will need diagnosing. Your neutral safety switch, and possibly a starter relay is in that circuit before it reaches the solenoid.
Good luck.

How to install an ignition switch: Problem - van won't crank, it's not the starter or battery. The key turns all the way over when trying to crank, it feels like a spring or something is missin


did you try looking at the cylinoid? in certain mini-vans the cylinoids are very low end, designed to last about 2 years. I hear my friends & people on the radio talking about this exact problem, if i'm wrong or misunderstood you question i appologize!

THE VAN STARTED RIGHT UP AND I PUT IT IN REVERSE AND STARTED TO MOVE AND THEN THE VAN WENT DEAD. HEAD LIGHTS ARE OUT, DOME LIGHT IS OUT. BREAK LIGHTS WORK AND SOME DASH LIGHTS WORK. THE VEHICLE HAS ENOUGH...


I would guess that you either blew a main ignition fuse or the ignition switch melted.
The brake lights and starter don't use the ignition circuit.
You need to trace with a test light.
See if current comes out of ignition switch when you turn it on.
It has to be going into the switch for the starter to crank.
As to what blew the fuse, it could be a short in the backup light circuit?

1997 caravan 3.0. van quit while driving. cranks but no start. found blown 20 amp engine fuse. replaced fuse, which immidiately blew when ignition switch turned on. found no loose cables or connections....


Bad ignition switch? Maybe? I have the same problem and I'm going to replace the ignition switch today before I start trying to trace electrical issues (which could be anything and take forever).. Hoping the switch is the fix...

Ignition will not turn off the van, key out of van, van still on


it sounds like the small arm inside the steering colunm has broken. on my windstar it was actually two pieces. if you do not have tilt steering the job to replace it isn't too bad tho you have to pull the steering wheel and remove the lock cylinder. to test if this is correct you would need to pull the ignition switch... it's under the steering column. there is a pin on it that fits into the arms that come down from the ignition switch. remove the ignition switch and turn the key while looking up into the hole where the small arm is. if it doesn't move it is broken.

for the immediate problem just either pull the fuse for ignition or remove the breather snorkel that attaches to the throttle body and block it off with your hand.
