Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. There is a chance that the security system may have been activated causing the truck to not start. If this is the case, you need to call the dealership to get the code according to your VIN number. Each vehicle is different. Since it is cranking, you need to check for fuel and fire. Check your fuel pressure to make sure it is correct. You may have a bad fuel filter or fuel pump. If the fuel checks out, you need to check for fire at the plugs/coils. You could have an issue with plugs, coils, wires, distributor, dist.cap, coil packs. It may be a cam sensor or crank sensor, or even the computer. I know this is a lot but any of these parts can cause the truck to not start. It could even be a timing belt/chain. But, since it was moved, the security system makes sense. If you can, you need to try and get a code off your computer, if the check engine light is on. By doing this, the computer may have picked up on the problem. If you can't get a code, start checking parts. Rule out each one. You should be able to hear the fuel pump kick on. You can visually inspect the timing belt/chain. Same thing goes for your plug wires. Make sure nothing has come loose. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and thanks for using FixYa.

Make your father buy you a new truck...nah, just kidding, if it sounds like it wants to start, it may be fuel, check at the top rail for pressure (use a rag so you don't spray it all over yourself, turn on the key and depress the pin)-if it has fuel, it is most probably the crank sensor, try disconnecting it and connecting it to see if that works-check fuses for a blown ignition fuse or swap out relays.

2004 dodge intrepid wont move out of park


Usually a problem with the brake switch or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park.
You may be able to unlock the key switch without turning the switch on, then take the shifter out of park.

98 olds achieva wont start or come outta park either


As with any no-start issue, you will need to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem to proceed.
The brake switch problem with the shifter could be a fuse.
No start could be a relay, fuse, fuel pump, coil, or a long list of other things.
Did you check the computer for trouble codes ?

1991 eagle talon will crank, but won't start up. 2 days ago I was driving home from work when i turned around in a parking lot and went to my parents house. about a half an hour there i needed to move...


That sounds like the fuel pump may have lost it's prime. Does it have fuel injection, or a carburetor on the engine? How much gas was in the tank while it was parked on an incline? Have you tried any starting fluid sprayed into the air intake hose, toward the engine? Warning! Don't use much starting fluid! Perhaps a one or two second burst, and have someone crank it immediately after you have stepped back at least 6 feet from the engine. If it fires, then it is definitely a fuel delivery problem! But it won't run long like that unless the fuel pump starts working again ... which is most likely when the engine is cold!

Car won't start not the battery


Test the neutral safety switch but doing the following steps.

1)foot on brake
2)turn key to on position
3)shift lever to neutral (N)
4)start the engine
5)shift the lever to Park (P)

If the engine can start at N and not at park then it's the neutral safety switch.

2000 Rodeo has intermittenly starting problems


It sounds as if your neutral safety start switch may be failing. This switch only allows for the safe start of an engine when the automatic transmission is in either park or neutral. It seems when you move around the gear selector you get it back to a spot where the switch allows the engine to start. Next time this happens while in park, try wiggling around the gear selector or place your foot on the brake (so you don't roll away) and place the transmission in to neutral. If it fires up you know to either adjust or replace the switch for the park position.

I hope this might have helped,

Key will not turn to start vehicle.


Try pushing in the key while turning the wheel either way. And jiggling it. This happens because the steering locks for the car's protection. If we park it with the wheels turned, it locks in that position. If that does not work, you may have to call a good mechanic to help you.
