Having problems with your 1991 Lincoln Mark VII ?

Interior lighting when I insert the key into the ignition all of the dash lights work but as soon as I turn the key on, all of the lights turn off. All gauges work with the exception of the gas gauge which is stuck on full and the information system that has not worked since I bought the car. At night time I cannot see the mph or anything. Can you please help!

Sounds like your ignition switch going bad ... 1991 Lincoln Mark VII

98 E320 ... Battery went dead in key. Changed battery and it worked two times. Now the doors won't unlock and the car ignition won't turn. Did have a continued problem off and on with the key not turning the car on. After turning it several times it would work. But now it will not open car doors or turn in the ignition. Does make a click sound when placed into the key ignition, just won't turn. And will not remote unlock doors. The key light does come on when buttons are pressed on key.

My 1991 Nissan Maxima 4D will not crank. Is there anyway you can help me figure out the problem? Last night, before driving my car home, the light on the inside would not turn on. Everything else worked as usual. This morning the same thing occurred, but the car still drove. I went somewhere and came back in an hour. About 30 minutes later I tried to crank my car and it wouldn't crank. This time I did not hear any clicking or anything while turning the key.


I would check that your starter motor isnt f**ked or has a break in the line.. your battery isnt dead.. that you have no blown fuses as their should be a fuse for your starter motor... and that your ignition is working and not shorting out these are ... 1991 Nissan Maxima

The first thing to check is the condition of the battery. If you have one or more bad cells, it will not provide enough power to turn the starter over. Also, check connections on battery to make sure they are clean and secure. Lastly, check to make s ... 2005 Dodge Neon

I have a 1999 Daewoo Nubira and it has started to cut power to my windows and heater fan at times. This does not happen all the time and it happens when the car is running.If I stop the car and turn the key to accessory then the windows and fan will work. Also the ABS light comes on when this is happing, when I see the light come on I know the windows and fan will not work. Tried to changing circuit breaker under hood and cleaning body ground connections but it did not work.


You are more than likely looking at replacing the ignition switch. If you would like instructions on doing this, please let me know. ... 1999 Daewoo Nubira

Car sat for 18 months, the battery died so i replaced it, after this the radio didn't work (maybe when i replaced it i shorted something out?) it ran for a while, but when it was driven at night the airbag light first came on, the dash lights dimmed (eventually to nothing). We barely got to our location. Once the car was stopped it was idleling weak. The turn signals quit working along with everthing else that is electric. The car shut off and would not start. When the key is turned to start it,


All of these are signs of a dying battery, because it's not recharged by the alternator.Test the alternator this way: jump the battery from a running car and start your engine; rev the engine to about 2500 rpm and disconnect the jumpers; test t ... 2001 Hyundai Elantra

I have a 2005 stratus. It is in the teens here in Ohio and I went to start my car this morning and it started but ran for only a few seconds. I tried again with the same results. Tried a third time and again it started but failed to keep running. The fourth time I turned the key I got nothing. No clicking, no cranking, nothing. I have had a charger on it for an hour now and am getting the same results. The lights are bright, blower works, but nothing when I turn the key. I even put the car in ne

2006 Dodge Charger will not start. I put the key in, turned the ignition, car started, and engine ran for a second or two, then shut itself off. I did this a few times hoping the engine would continue to run, but each time the engine would shut itelf off. Now, the car will not even start. I put the key in, turn the ignition, and get nothing. Electrical system seems to be fine. Lights, horn, radio all work fine. Maybe a sensor or fuel filter? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

2006 Pontiac Torrent. I start the car and it sounds fine, but then the engine just turns off and the check engine light comes on, and the light that looks like an engine with a down arrow comes on. It happens when driving and not driving. The car usually works in the morning and at night but not during the daytime. The first time this happened was a month ago, i waited a little while and turned the car back on and it was fine. But recently it keeps on turning off repeatedly. Everything in the ca

Last month my immobiliser started playing up: When I'd turn the key in the ignition the 'immobiliser lamp' stayed on and I was unable to start the car. I've owned this car since 2003 and this had never happened before.(NOTE: the lamp was not flashing as it does when the wrong key is used). After I turned the key back and on again the light went off again and I was able to start. Hmmm...I adapted to that but then one night my trick wouldn't work and i was stuck, unable to start my car.

I insereted the key to my 2003 Jeep Overland into my 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee and was able to turn the key and the car would not start. I tried this several times before I realized I had the wrong key. The car will not start with the real key, now. When I turn the key, nothing happenes and a perform maintence light comes on.

2001 FORD TAURUS SEA. Problem: Dome light will not turn off after car is put in gear. At least not right away. While I'm driving it will turn off and the doors will lock (eventually). Also, the dome light will not turn off after turning off the car and making sure each door is shut completely. I know it has a dely, but all night and draining my battery is a little much. I can sometimes shut the driver door several times with much force and that will sometimes work. Or I'm shaking the who

Keys get stuck in ignition and car shows no sign of power. Then out of nowhere the lights will come on. Jumped it once and it worked after the keys were able to turn. The next morning after car ran for an hour after the night before's jump the car showed no signs of power. Is this just a battery problem? If so then why in the middle of the day all of a sudden the lights would come on and the car power up on it's own.


Sounds like a bad ignition switch or a wiring problem by the switch. ... 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix

I was having problems with the car not starting at times, turn the key and nothing would happen and the next time it would work fine. I replaced the ignition switch and now the car starts every time but none dash lights, radio or fan will come on. The next time you start it everything will work fine. What is causing this problem.


Sounds like a poor electrical connection somewhere. See if there is a relay in the fuse panel associated with these functions. If so, you could replace that. Without schematics for the car it will be tough, but look for wiring that could be damage ... 2003 Oldsmobile Alero

The car starts fine, sometimes, but at other times, when i turn the key, everything "goes dead" -- no electrical @ all. After turning the key to off, the lights & such work again, but when i turn to start, the same thing happens. Jumping the car does get it to start. Any ideas?


This sounds like you have a bad connection at the battery. Take a look at the battery terminals and clamps. If they are corroded clean them off with a battery brush, apply a coating of petroleum jelly to the terminal and clamps. Make sure clamps are ... 1987 Jaguar XJ6

I turn on headlights and running diesel stops I have a '81 Caddy With no known issues. It suddenly developed a perplexing problem: Truck started on first crank, as it usually does. When I turned on the headlights (it was night time), the truck instantly died. Not a sputtering stop, it shut off as if the key were turned off. Instantly, and cleanly. And all the lights went out, including the dash. It would not restart. The dash remained dead. The flashers worked, the brake lights worked. No oth
