Sounds like bad ignition switch. I'd start with replacing switch.

2003 suzuki wont crank up


what car?, suzuki makes 100s. and what tranny it has.......??????
no crank is cause by only 3 things.
1: bad starting system.
2: bad charging system , making battery dead. or battery is bad.
3: the key line is dead , if A/T? the key line goes through the tranny
PRND switch (side of tranny),. must be in N or P to start.
3a; if manual tranny? the clutch switch fails.

can you start with a jump start?
that means the battery is dead, no charged or bad.
if not, then smack the starter with a hammer ,start now?
if not, hot wire starter, work now?
if not, make sure the Key line to the starter solenoid goes to way above 8v, when you crank, if not the cab wiring is bad.
that means, the key line from ignition switch to the starter is failing.
here's a no crankpage covering all that.

No power to starter


The starter 3 wires. not 1.
ground lost to starter
12v main big wire, dead.
or the key line.
the key line goes to the key. (start)
if A/T if this wire is dead, the PRN trans switch is bad.
if M/T the wire is dead the clutch switch is broken.

Cranks and then goes dead


First check your fuel pressure it should be 41-47 psi with key on and engine off if its below 32 psi replace the fuel pump and filter.If fuel pump checks out to be good then take ignition switch out and check for burned ignition switch wires and worn ignition key tumblers and ignition lock cylinder.These cars are known for faulty ignition switches and ignition lock cylinders.Ignition switch gets to hot then it won't start until it cools off.

Alarm goes off when new battery in placed in car, when alarm finally goes off and we try to start the car the alarm goes off again and the car won't start. I do not have a key chain with an alarm...


Hello. If you have a FACTORY alarm system, the deactivte prodedure is to cycle the key off-on (not to start) 5 times, in the ignition. This feature is provided in case you lose the remote, or the remote battery goes dead.

Note: this will only work with the Factory system. If you have an aftermarket system, this answer will no benefit you.

I turn the key and the car goes dead. 1994 rodeo.


It does sound as if the battery is dead. If you are sure your battery is good, you may have a short in the starting circuit.
