Hello, This problem can be either the starter Relay or the Ignition switch. There should be a small wire on the starter Relay. Disconnect this wire, its nickname is the "Tickler" and then reconnect the Battery. If the Battery arcs and the starter spins, then the internal parts of the starter Relay are fried. You need a new starter Relay. The Relay should need to get a signal from the "Tickler" to work.

If the starter does not turn when you reconnect the battery, you need to test the "Tickler" wire for power. Use a testlight or a Voltmeter and see if the wire has power and do not move the Ignition switch from the position when it was messing up. There should not be power in this wire. If there is power there, then the Ignition switch is messed up. If this is a newer car or truck; one of the Interlock switches at the top of the Brake lever under the dash can be crushed or out of position. If this is a stick-shift, there can be an Interlock contact on the clutch pedal lever.

Most of the time the Interlocks will be cutout switches, the Pos+ power is originating from somewhere else like the Ignition switch. But sometimes the Pos+ and Neg wires can both be in the Interlock and when the Interlock breaks, the wrong wires connect. So before taking apart the plastic cover on the steering column to get at the Ignition switch, make sure the Interlocks are not broken.

I hope my solution is very helpful in solving the problem.

2000 jeep grand cherokee 4.7 has a no crank no start on cold mornings


DOES IT CRANK in NEUTRAL? using fresh PRNDL contacts?
no crank, is easy to diagnose. with just one tool a voltmeter.
12.6vdc is a charged battery , rested, if lower, and not cold its discharged. so charge it or jumper cable crank engine off running donor car. easy huh?
if it cant crank it cant start, (mine can push start or gravity start)
battery cable lugs clean and tight x4 ends? green corrosion?

we then hot wire. the starter solenoid, next. (using old screwdriver as jumper bar)
it cranks now (good starter ) all in 5min work !
it does not crank bad starter.

so it cranks hot wired. good.
so next what is next, easy the KEY line.
the key line runs form the starter to the PRNDL switch and then the KEY switch (crank Start line)
if the car has SKIM immobilizer it cuts fuel not spark.

so i check for 12vdc into PRNDL cranking then key is ok.
if got 12vdc in to PRNLD but not out cranking the switch is bad.
or maladjusted?
its that simple ,with any 10buck DMM off walfarts shelf.

if car is hacked or alarms spliced in, we cant fix it here, its not stock.
same with remote start hack jobs.

What are the reasons for it to not even crank over from ignition switch


There is a key position switch in the steering wheel. If this is reading wrong or sensor stuck in position it will not crank or run. Can you hear the fuel pump cycle when you turn key?

I have 1992 isuzu pup truck.sometimes i turn the key to crank it and there is nothing noise wize,no clicking nothing.the dash lights come on,battery is good.i turn the key another time and it cranks r


you need an ignition switch. One way to figure it out is to turn the key to engage the starter, quickly........over and over, the "catch and start" will happen with no change and suddenly, its engaged. Or, keep the key in the START position, don't let up on it and hit the steering column with your fist, or the steering wheel. It may just be shorting out.

Location relay


no model Honda stated, nor year, 1973?
my guess is
car fails to crank, am i right,?
ask how to trouble shoot NO CRANK (easy)
if engine CRANKS, ask who to trouble shoot that (longest book on earth)
ever clean the battery lugs this decade?
no crank, does car have A/T o r M/T tranny, not stated.
did jumper starts or known good battery (fully charged) crank motor fast (y/n)
yes, bad battery
no, bad cranking system. (its a system not 1 part)

cranking dead.
i hot wire the starter, soleniod.
motor cranks but dont start (cuz keys are in my pocket for safety)
no crank is bad starter or bad battery cables
cranks fast. starter and crank shaft on engine spins normal
cause,bad key line.

post results. we can work a bad key line, after post tranny type.
the above cuts the problem in1/2.
1: bad cranking system.
2: bad key line.


if battery is just discharged, its a bad battery or bad charging system.
owning a charger solve this as is using a voltmeter on battery after a good start.

Even with the reprogrammed key's the engine would crank, it might not start but it would crank over so that leave's only one thing, your used ignition switch is bad.

Starter wont crank on a 2000 oldsmobile intrigue


Check your manual if you have it. I believe you need to have the key in the ignition in the ON position for about 10 minutes to reset the security system.

Starter wont crank with ignition key


Well, if you have a problem with the security system not allowing you to crank, then you have a problem that can be fixed only by the dealer.

Check your key and verify that it doesn't have a dirty or wet resistor on the security ignition key. This is a common problem with this type of security system.

Good luck on fixing this problem.
