Ignition Key Will Not Turnstarter on - Cars & Trucks


... Cars & Trucks

I have a 1996 ford ranger 2.3L. Once I put my key in the ignition, before I start the car, I get the ringing sound which lets me know my key is still in the ignition. That's normal, the not so normal part is when I start the truck and start driving the ringing sound will not stop. It stays on for the entire time I am driving the truck. It only stops when I take the key out of the ignition. Do i replace the electric module or can i cut a wire and will it go away or something else.


You can unplug the chime box - it will not affect the operation of the truck. ... 1996 Ford Ranger SuperCab

I have a 2002 trailblazer ltz, I go to start the truck and it just clicks under the hood, no noise or anything. The lights on the console comes on and the radio says that's it's on but it only plays static. Also everything seems to be reset in the car like the car was saying "Driver 1" even though I had the driver 2 key and remote and also the time on the radio was reset to 12:00. Also as I'm turning the key the radio screen says "Need AMP". what do you think this could be?


Sounds like either a loose connection at the battery, or your battery has failed. Check your connections and make sure they are clean and tight, if so, then have your battery tested, and change if recommended. ... 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

2006 nissan altima battery shows 12.73 volts on the multimeter but every thing electronic in the car seems like it has a weak battery. When I turn the key to start the car I get nothing at all and the volts drop to 6.5. When i take out the ignition fuse under the hood everything in the car electronically works great but i just cant start. any ideas? Im thinking the starter is gone and its drawing to many amps and thats why it makes every thing in car goes funny.


The proper voltage acceptable is 12.4 volts (across the battery) this test does not test the seperate cells.due to the excessive drop in voltage I think your battery has a bad cell in it.A good battery might drop to 11.8 but 6.5 your battery is no go ... Nissan Altima

I have a 2001 Ford Ranger that has a battery drain. When the car sits overnight the next morning the battery if completely drained. I've done some research and found that it may be linked to the Security System (Ford's stock system with the chip in the key that corresponds to the ignition) in the truck, and if I disconnect the system, the car won't start, and to disconnect when I turn it off and reconnect when I go to start it is inconvenient. Any suggestions on how to fix it or how to find a

Battery died and now key is stuck in the ignition and it will not start. I jumped the vehicle off and now the whole truck is locked up. It will not release the key, will not go in gear, it seems as if there is a security issue as if the car has a theft protection device on it. The battery is currently dead. What should I do to get the vehicle back to opererating condition? Please help if you can. Thanks

This sounds strongly like a faulty ECU. I would start calling junk yards in your area. If the dash at all got wet on the driver's side, you may be replacing the body control module which should be located on the very side of the dash and include all ... Buick Regal
