Lister for a clicking from the start motor you may need some to help you. if you or your friend hear the click on the starter motor then the motor and it does not turn the engine or goes crunch like its engaged but does not turn,It will need replacing or fixing, if no click this could be the starter relay or the ignition switch or you have a lose wire tot he relay.

    you would only need the connection on the back, no other parts if its the ignition switch other parts are for the immobilizer, as long as the immobilizer is turning off with the key in ignition, it can be remove and separated

    you just need the black plug and nothing else.

    you could even just make sport start with a button. this would not bypass the ignition just the start. put key in ignition and turn but instead off turning to 3 on ignition you press a button. that you can put where is best for you, can even hide the button somewhere on the dash.

Does the car lock open with the switch on the door?  If it does not, it is not the key.

SOURCE: it wont start turn key dash lights up nothing happens

sounds like a dead battery to start with. Not even enough juice in the battery to energize the solenoid / brake interlock to get it out of PARK. Hope this helps

SOURCE: 1994 Nissan Pathfinder won't start, even jumping it.

I had a similar problem w/ my 94 Pathfinder. The problem was a cheap security system that was offered in that year model and the wiring between the ignition and the starter was run through this system. The dealership was able to by pass the security system and this fixed the problem. For years other mechanics told me it was the starter but I knew it was something else.

What's are the signs that my starter on my 2006 Acura RL is Bad??? I have full power inside my car, it won't start....


Could be the battery isn't charged enough to turn the motor over. Try jumping it and listen under the hood for any grinding or metalic sounds. You can have lights inside but not enough to start the motor.

Car seems to be dead, no internal sensors flashing and keyless entry and manual key won't let me in car.


Check to ensure that the battery just doesn't need a jump start, manually open the door and pop the hood and have someone jump start your battery, if it is the original then just replace it.

My acura rl 3.5 2005 don't start, but the batery is good and all accesories work!


Hmm, sounds to me like a bad starter. If you can see it and get at it easy enough, I would make sure the connections on it are tight.

Then useing a test light, test the smaller lead for power while someone tries cranking it over.

If it has power at the terminal then you need a new starter.
