Based on the limited information you have given, most likely problem is the starter and more specifically the starter solenoid switch. The solenoid switch is attached to the starter and based on the age of your vehicle, it would be more economical to replace the starter than to repair just the solenoid.

If you do it yourself, a rebuild starter can be purchased at most any auto parts store or online here for $60-$100 plus tax and shipping. If you are taking into a shop or dealer estimate cost $200-$300.

Your ignition switch is going bad. The strange noise is the starter remaining engaged and locked to the flywheel. Your best bet is to have the starter tested at your local auto parts store, to deduce that it is not, in fact, your starter.

Can not start the car- key will not turn- ignition locked


Make sure the steering wheel doesnt have preasure on the lock, turn wheel to the left and to the right with a little force while trying to turn the key, this happens alot, if this doesnt help then you may have a bad worn key or the switch is broke or worn,try wiggleing the key in the ignition and turning at the same time to get it to turn good luck hope this helps you.

When you turn the key it has trouble starting sometimes you turn it it doesnt do anything, sometimes it turns the lights and radio on and other times it starts to crank and doesnt so far it has always...


I would check the ignition switch, these are prone to key and barrel wear, Sounds silly but if you have another key try that as a newer,less worn profile key can sometimes help with a solution

I turn the key and ignition wont start it's chuggs and iv'e just replaced the water pump and iv'e made for sure that the timeing was all correct wich it is and there are no leaks! i had it started earlier...


could be battery like you said make sure all electricala connections from battery to solenoid to starter are thight and snug if that doesnt fix it then take the starter and hook it directly to a 12 battery or battery charger to see if it throughs out the gear and spins. do that a few times if it doesnt spin or 1 in 5 tries its doesnt spin then its probally you starting motor its self. you can try to start the car directly by connecting only the positive battery terminal with a booster cable and with the ignition in the on position touch the other end of the booster cable to the starting motors terminal. if the car starts goo then its most likely your solenoid or cables. if you try this make sure the car is in park "for auto" . or neutral on a manual transmission.

Car doesnt start with new battery using the key


try resetting the security system, follow this procedure.
PASS LOCK RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.

Our 2004 GMC canyon will not start from time to time.


Could be any number of thing's . Engine management system sensors . Anything mentioned on here would be a guess . Having a qualified repair shop with the proper testing equipment viewing sensor scan data is the way to a fix . Not going by peoples guess . It could be a fuel system or ignition system prblem , engine sensor etc....
047 Engine Hard to Start or No Start Scan Data for Ignition
048 Engine Hard to Start or No Start Scan Data for Starting Problems
Takes year's to learn how to properly diagnose these systems . I have over thrity year's experience , thousand's of dollars of scan tools , diagnostic equipment etc... An ever year they come of with new stuff , I go to GM tech school 4 or 5 times a year .

Truck wont start


1.) spray engine starting fluid into air intake ---remove air filter if necessary.
2.) if ignition only on this spray, then seek bad fuel supply problem.
3.) if no ignition, check for spark.
