    1. car won't start. The lights on the gear shift move back and forth between park and reverse. At times if you manipulate the gear shift a little you can start car. If the emergency is on - (no load on transmission) starts



    2. car won't start. Key locks in ignition and wont come out. Removed battery cables (both) before could remove key. When trying to start the rear view window mirrors move slightly without prompting



    3. car wont start - re-locked door and unlocked and car started.

When you turn the key do all the lights on the dashboard turn OFF? If they do then your battery is too weak. If they don't, and don't even dim much, then your starter is burnt out or you lost connection to your starter due to corroded wiring, blown fuse, or starter relay. One other slight possibility exists where the key switch assembly in the steering collumn is damaged and does not connect the starter wires when the key is turned.
(I'm assuming you don't have an electronic ignition disabler security system).

This could be as simple as an shifter cable out of adjustment, or a bad neutral safety switch, or even some loose change in the H-ShifterGauge.
If the car is not in Park or neutral, it will not start.
If the car is not in park, the key will not come out.
If the car thinks it is in reverse, the mirrors will lower automatically.

After a while the cable can get out of adjustment and just needs a SIMPLE, and inexpensive fix, although I'm sure you could pay someone a lot of money to look at it. (if you do not have the Rave 2003 CD, buy one, they're about $5 on Ebay. Rave is worth consulting before spending big bucks on a mechanic, many of which can't work on rovers, 'cause they can't...well nevermind...

Car won't start, seems to have power, all lights working. when I turn the key nothing happens. this only happens sometimes


Could be a bad alternator.. It may not be holding charge. Or your starter could have failed.

Though I've had the same problem and it was a dead battery in my vehicle. Had enough power, but to keep the car on..

Lights, radio and powerdoor locks work, turn key to start car nothing happens


If you had said the radio did not work, I would say it was the key switch or a large fuse or fuseable link.
But the radio is powered thru the key switch.
The problem could still be the key switch or a major fuse, I would check all of the fuses then power at the key switch.
Also check the ground connections.

2009 HHR won't start. Battery is good.


Is the security light on or blinking?If not then do you have power to the starter.You can check this with a test light.You should have power when you turn the key to start.The test light should light up.Should be the small wire.I believe it is purple in color.If the security light is on then you will have to get the codes to see what is causing the no start.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I just went out to start my car, and the key turns but nothing happens except the dashboard lights come on. No turn over, no noise.....


It sounds like you ignition switch went out. I had this happen to my wife a few years ago you turn the key the acceseries turn on but nothing else. this will be a trip to the dealer. did you happen to smell something electrical burning the last time you car was working if so it is the starter switch. you will need to take it to the deales an get a ne w switch which will also involve new keys$$$
