This is a VERY common problem in GM vehicles. There is an anti theft security system installed in your car. When there is a communication break in this system, the computer switches off the starter thinking that somebody is trying to steal the car. Is there a light that says SECURITY on the dash when you turn the key forward 2 clicks? If you see this light at all, this is most likely your problem. Check out this link for a full description, and some DO IT YOURSELF options to fix this problem forever. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Hi there I have an 04 Honda Accord 2.2i ctdi sport and I was installing projector lights into the door courtesy lights now the courtesy lights on the drivers side aren't working.


Could be a bad light switch in the driver's door. You can check and see if you have power on the driver's door with a tester before you purchase a new switch.

Truck wont start


It could be the fender mounted starter relay under the hood. Or if you took off the small wire at that relay (its from the ignition switch), it should have voltage when the key is held in start. If it does have power in start, probably the relay. If no power in start, either the switch or the neutral safety switch is acting up.

Sounds like the switch is toast. I would check for voltage at the switch connector. Could have also damaged the connector between the lock cylinder and the switch.

2000 ford taurus wont start. When the key is turned I have no dash lights, or power to the accessories that run through the ignition. I changed the ignition switch today. Thank You Chris


Is your dome light coming on? do the power locks work?
Your battery may be dead, or you may have blown a main fuse (under the hood)

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?

Dashboard lights won't come on


Most often the tail lights and dash lights share a single feed and fuse.
Assuming you have checked the fuses (probably marked as tail or courtesy)
If you have good fuse and the head light gives a voltage out while in the 'parking light' position (usually between off and headlights) then you need to start chasing wiring.
