Simple fault finding will get to the fault. Use a test lamp and voltmeter to check the power line feeding the ignition system but check the alarm first as disconnecting the battery can cause it to cut out the ignition power.

There are two boxes. One is located under the hood, next to the battery. That one is actually called the power distribution box. The fuse and relay diagram is on the underside of the protective cover. The other fuse box is located on the drivers side at he end of the dash, facing the door. The trim cover is labeled and the fuse diagram is on the other side of said cover.

Please Google search STANDARD part# CP496 canister purge control solenoid. This is to help you see what part you are looking for. The purge valve is located at the drivers side strut tower. Inside the engine compartment. Pop the hood, and look for the large corrugated rubber duct that sits between the TAC (throttle body) and the engine air filter housing. Behind the rubber duct, clipped off the side of the drivers side strut tower. You will see the purge valve or solenoid. Usually this part is tested with by a technician. He or she will use a scan-tool, vacuum testing tool and EVAP smoke machine. Doesn't sound like you will have any of that. If you want to try testing the solenoid only. You must use care with the next steps if you decide to use the car battery. If mistakes are made you could be hurt, burned, injured or ruin the purge valve you are trying to test. I advice first trying a new 9V battery instead. The valve will need to be completely removed from the car. The battery, two pieces of wire, a foot long piece of 3/16 rubber hose and said valve will be placed on your work area. Attach the hose to one of the vacuum ports and gently suck. If you are met with resistance stop and setup for the electrical test. You need to momentarily connect the 9V battery to the two electrical pins of the valve. The valve is normally closed when denergized. After you connect both wires to the valve pins. Hold one wire onto one battery terminal and with the other. Quickly tap and release the other wire to the other battery terminal. Do you hear it click? If not, double check the connections. You can also double check by once again gently sucking on the vacuum hose while you tap the terminal. If suction resistance remains the valve is bad. If air flows the valve could be good. This is all I can do to help. Honestly the best way for this system to be tested is by a trained technician. I do hope this helps. Good luck.

Not sure what you have for tools or how far you want to take diagnostics. Start with a preliminary check under the hood. GM had a problem with the battery positive cable. Will the starter work if the transmission is shifted into neutral? What do you hear when you turn the key to START? Do you hear a loud mechanical click when momentarily in start? Do the lights dim when you try to start it? Can you hear the starter relay click from inside the power distribution box (Under hood fuse box)? Check the battery for age and both posts are clean and tight. If you don't have a multimeter, test light and basic tools. You can try tapping the side of the starter with a small hammer. You must tap the starter with mild force or you will make matters worse and ruin your core. If you do have some of the tools I listed above. I would check for blown fuses, damaged pin contacts on related fuse and relay. Let me know if you want specific diagnostic procedures. If not, disconnect and remove the battery and starter. Bring them down to your local part store and have them tested. Please let me know if you need more information and how the repairs are going. Good Luck.

Key switch. Try and turn the key just enough to engage the starter and the dash lights should stay on i just ordered a key switch for my 2015 pioneer 700.

make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. If battery is down use a charger and get it charged up. Was the charging system tested on the vehicle? Everything off, key off, check voltage at generator bat terminal, hot all the time. You can use test light to check for voltage. If no voltage, have to check fusible link and that wire circuit. See the charge indicator circuit, that is excite voltage, w/o that, the generator won't charge. Just my opinion. The diagram may not be large enough to see wire colors? I'll check on location of that fusible link, you could track the wiring circuit. generator-undefined-undefined-0.jpg

If this is a tuning box for your vehicles ECU get an expert to fit it because if you get it wrong it will cost you a stupidly huge amount of money to put right. THE GOLDEN RULE! Leave engine tuning to the experts!

Does it have an automatic transmission? Without bolting up the torque converter, but after mounting the transmission to the engine, can you rotate the torque converter? (If the torque converter rotates, you can bolt it up AFTER the transmission is mounted.) If not, your torque converter is not fully seated into the pump in the transmission. Be aware that you may have already damaged the pump if this is the case.

Your best option here is to get a Good Transmission mechanic to look at it. He'll be able to drive it to find the problem. This could be anything from a simple faulty sensor on the transmission or something more serious like a Torque Converter issue.
