Most likely a bad starter. you might have an oil leak getting into starter. need to replace start and fix oil leak.

Just got my ignition replaced with a used ignition and since then now and then I turn my key and everything in the car and outside turns on. Gas pump kicks in and everything then I go to start my engine and the key turns and nothing happens. No click, no nothing, I have gotten it in the past to turn over from rapidly turning the key to start the car and then randomly it would start up. But now it has finally stopped working. Anyone have any ideas?

Ignition Sometimes, not always, when I turn the ignition key to start, absolutely nothing happens, I turn it back to the off position, then back to start, and it starts up. When that problem occurs, once in awhile it will take 2 or 3 turns of the ignition key (back and forth from off to start). I have thoroughly cleaned all connections at the starter, including the mating face of the starter to the bell housing. Any help will surely be appreciated. Thank you, Mark Gwynn Cleveland OH

Our 2002 Bravada's key is stuck in the ignition and will not turn on. The care acts dead but the battery is good. The car will not shift, nothing happens when we put on the brake and try to turn the key, and we've tried wiggling, tried to shift into neutral, and checked the main Engine fuse. What can we do? Alsol will the key remaining in the ignition drain the battery?

I went to start my 2002 Envoy SLT this morning and when I turned the key, the radio and dash lights came on as usual, but when I went to start it, nothing! Then all the power shut off and the key will not come out of the ignition. There is nothing when you turn the key. I figure a fuse blew, but I don't know which one. Do you have any ideas of what could have happened. Thank you!!!!

When I turn my ignition nothing happens, no sound or lights come on. The lights come on shortly after I take the key out of the ignition and the only way to get them to shut off is to step on the brake.
