It will not start when I turn the key on only the relay clicks very fast. I replaced the starter, battery, and relay. When I put the key in the alarm goes off loudly but when I try turn it on, it is barely audible. The left blinker inside light comes on but when you turn the left blinker on it goes out and the widsheild wipers move barely without being on. I am stumped can you help me. I also get 12 volts to the 4 prong on the starter relay wire while off and 10 volts to 4 and 1 while I crank it

I have a 97 subaru impreza outback sport that wont start. i turn the key all the way and it does nothing. the power is on but the engine doesnt turn over. I think it is linked to my shift lever though because my shifter moves freely between the gears instead of me needing to put in the brake. Also the car wont go into any of the gears. wont go into park nothing.

Check/replace the brake light switch on the top of the brake pedal. ... 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis

Car wont start (wont turnover). The shift interlock solenoid is broken because I can now move my shifter to any gear even without having my keys in the ignition. Would this cause the car to not start? No click or anything when turning the key. BPP switch was recently replaced and I had the starter checked a month ago and it's good. Battery good, fuses good, lights turn on, cd player works. Lights dim slightly when trying to start. tried to start in neutral too and got nothing.


Yes it could very well keep it from starting get that fixed first ... Ford Escort

2001 Chrysler T&C LT 3.8L FWD Steering wheel and shifter is locked and key will not turn from the off position. Have tried turning the wheel in either direction while trying to turn the key. Have tried moving the shifter out of park (shifter didn't move). Have tried depressing the brake to the floor...letting it up...pumping the brake. Is there something else I can try? The vehicle was only parked there for about an hour, and everything was fine before that.

Key stuck in ignition, no electrical power. I have a 2005 Volvo S40. When I put the key in the ignition I was able to turn it past 0, but upon doing that all power was lost and I was unable to return the key back to the 0 position and the automatic shifter locked in the park position. I have tried moving the steering wheel to all positions and also tried to jump start the vehicle. I am at a loss for what to do and there is no local dealership for me to consult with.

My 2003 Acura 3.2TL wont move from the park position after the car is turned on. There is a slot near the shifter that I can stick my key into and this will let the car out of the park position but if I dont use that then it wont move. I have tried pushing on the brake as hard as possible and this only worked once. This was not a gradual problem, it just happened without notice.

Intermitent start Battery is fine. Turn the key and I get a click. Turn the key several times until it finally kicks over. Bad relay or ignition switch? I have question, no click from starter, engine will not turn at all. Leave it over night or for while and it starts. drive couple day, and stops working again. Took starter in for test and it works. Battery cables fine and also have put new battery in. Is this a fuse or switch sticking open that is between ignition and starter or is it starter.

My Camry won't go into park. I have to put it in Reverse pull the E-brake to turn off and remove the key. Starting means: turn the key til lights turn on hold down brake pull down E-brake shift to neutral and turn on the car. I've located the braided wire/cable that connects from shifter to transmission under the hood and tinkered with it even losing reverse a couple of times. What can I do to get it to push the lever all the way down to shift to park?

2001 Rodeo Sport has been having a problem when I go to start it. I put the key in and the lights come on but it doesn't turn over, if I reach down and jiggle some wires under the dash or move the shifter some, and try again, it will start but I might have to do it only once or several times. Ideas???


Your plug going into your ignition switch is probably loose, or there is a short in one of the wires. The ignition is likely going to be on the top of the steering column. You will have to remove the plastic around the column and check all of the con ... 2001 Isuzu Rodeo

Starting problems I have a 89 Camaro, v6, sometimes it will start sometimes it won't. At first I thought maybe it was the shieldguard for the starter, but it has set for 2 days without being started and I went out and it started so I moved it 50 ft and a bit later I went out to start it and turn it around but it wouldn't start, so I am figuring the shieldgaurd isn't it. I know it could be the ignition switch but also could it have something to do with either the security system or even the key?


Make sure it is all the way in park, or try starting it in nuetral. could be start/nuetral safety switch if the transmission is automatic. ... 1989 Chevrolet Camaro

While driving my Jeep my guages started flickering, and the headlights also. My brake indicator and ABS lit up. I pulled to the side of the road and turned the motot off, when i did this nothing happened. There wer no interior lights, all power was lost to the car.

I drove it home without any flickering
