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.

Somebody got inside my 1977 Sedan de Ville and did something to the ignition that now prevents me from turning the key in the ignition plus unable to move the gearshift from "Park" -- therefore difficult to tow it away because the front wheels are turned a bit and they are locked in place while the transmission is in "Park"...

My car just shut off on me as i pulled into work this morning and wouldn't restart. timing belt is ok. all fuses and relays ok. i disconnected the battery to (hopefully) clear any codes. still wouldn't start.

Car wont start. I have worked on cars before and it appears to be an electrical problem. It does nothing when I turn the key. The battery is good, The starter is good. The fuses are good. It has to be something from the ignition switch to the wires from the battery or starter. Have other people had this problem and if so can you tell me what you did about it? This has heppened before and then you wait a day or two and the car starts again. Weirdest thing ive ever seen. Any help is appreciated.

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?
