Hi Barry:
There will probably be a dead short in the light circuit. Check all of the junctions.

Ar starts then shuts down immediately. dash lights do not come on when switch is turned on.


Replace the ignition switch. It has lost power to the run position. The reason for no lights and dieing when you let go of the key.

Engine cranks fine, but will only run 5-6 sec then dies. If you press the gas, it sputters and dies immediately.


Seems like a fuel delivery problem.
May be a bad fuel pump, clogged fuel filter or a fuel line problem.

What car make/model? What engine?

When it dies, try to turn ignition off immediately, wait a couple of seconds and turn the key quickly to the crank position (don't wait with the key in ignition-on position so that the fuel pump doesn't try to pump fuel into the fuel lines).
If it hesitates to start or runs significantly shorter before dying, you have pinpointed a problem with the fuel system.

Pls let me know what you find out.

My 73 RD 250 cranks 1st kick and runs great but when key is turned to position 2 it dies just as if I had hit the kill switch.


Hi Barry:
Sounds like there is a dead short happening in the # 2 position. Trace the wire to determine what is supposed to be happening at #2..... There will probably be a grounded connector. Gotta love those old bikes.

2001 Malibu 3.1 starts then dies immediately. When I turn the key on the car will start, then die immediately, there is no security light on and the car has 3/4 tank of fuel. Also yesterday the heater...


this sounds like a crank position sensor issue, however check the condition of the battery and for tight battery connections first. The blower motor may be another issue, blower motor relay or a loose or burnt connection at the blower motor or the blower motor resistor and lastly a bad blower motor.

If your check engine light is on have the codes read. This may help you in finding the problem.

My car anti-theft seems to have kicked in and I can't get it to start. What do I do next?


hi, you can perform the reset with just your key and a battery charger to see if this will allow for restart. what you do is, hook up a battery charger to start with, low amperage setting like 15 amp, or maybe 2 amp, and leave it on the battery, you will be leaving the key on for up to an hour and the battery must not die during this time. turn the key on and try to start once for about 1-2 seconds, then let go and let key rest in run position for fifteen minutes at minimum. then turn off the key, wait ten seconds, and turn on again to run position only, leave on for another fifiteen minutes, then again, turn off for ten seconds, turn back on to run position for fifteen minutes. after this time, turn the key off, wait ten seconds, and try to start the car. if it starts, check to see if the check engine light is illuminated, or the security light is on, if one or the other is on, take to a shop and have codes checked and diagnosed, if no lights on, you should be able to drive on. if the vehicle does not start after three reset key cycles, try the process one more time. it may have been interupted somehow. if you try twice and still no start, you have to have diagnosed further, maybe in the key, maybe in the lock cylinder, maybe in the theft module.
