What to do if your Car won't Start
Ford focus 2001 I bang my key in the ignition to turn it Should I replace it If I replace key ignition cylinder it needs to be reconfigure with original auto key Can I do this or the dealership?
I would have the ignition itself replaced. These go out all the time and will leave you stranded. Get a new ignition keyed to your current key and you won't have to do programming. A locksmith can do this for you. Do it soon though before it stops turning.
There are a few possibilities: Low battery, either because the alternator isn't keeping the battery charged or the battery is old and has failed. Corroded battery terminals, usually an indicator that the battery is blowing acid fumes. Batteries usually don't last long after the terminals start to...
What is wrong when the key is in the ignition and will not turn to start the car and this also happens with my spare key?
The ignition lock cylinder will need to be replaced, a locksmith might be able to repair the old one, if you told us the year make and model that would help a lot. It might be that the steering wheel needs to be moved just a bit to "clear" the wheel lock. You can try this, but don't "force" the w...

Check the neutral safety switch,it is located on the transmission or on the steering column ,under the dash.
If the starting problem only happens in the Summer when it is really hot and after a short drive when the engine is hot, it is an overheated neutral safety switch. Many were defective and if you replace it from a junk yard, you can get another bad one.Try this. Keep a container of water in your c...

There are many possible reasons for this, and troubleshooting is required to narrow it down. As important as what doesn't happen is what does happen.
fuel, compression, spark, timing, that's what it needs to run, something must be missing
A person will have no power to the ignition when the key is turned over when the battery is dead or the ignition switch is defective. Each component must be tested to rule them out as a problem.
Temperature gage indicates hot all the time even when just turning the ignition key on without starting the car?
Either the sending unit is stuck, or you have a short in the wire.
First of all check wiring - the easiest would be to check is there a current on the starter when you turn the key. It's very likely that you have wiring problem, and your old starter is fine.
How do you turn off the engine in a 1990 Acura Integra LS if the keys are out of the car and the car wont turn off what could the problem be if its not the ignition switch?
What changes have been made to the car? Is the Rad cooling fan still wired original or wired so comes on with ignition? Added a stereo or any equipment? If so disconnect one at a time and see if this fixes it.
your starter coil is stuck , bang on your coil with something while trying to start then you will need a new starter sonner or later.
You turn on power to the accesories, ie radio, power outlet, etc.
It makes a horrible grinding noise as the starter motor turns over, but doesn't do any damage (well I hope it doesn't).
Possible battery, starter, relay or wiring issues Peobably a dead battery. You can jump start it and let it run to see if it will charge back up. if something was left on, it may be fine. Other than that, check the cables to see if they are corroded. check to see if anything else works like the l...
2002 Toyota Tacoma ignition switch sticks.What is causing this. Sometimes it'll turn to start position or it won't. WD 40 does not remedy this.?
Have you tried wiggling the steering column while turning the key? If that helps, you probably need to remove a portion of the plastic cover from your steering column to enable you to lube the column lock. That's the thing that keeps the steering from turning if the key is not turned on. If the c...

Why won't my car won't start the light won't turn on even when you jump start it what could be wrong?
Be sure and check the Negative battery cable connections where it connects to the frame or engine block of your vehicle. I have had this problem before and the cable was loose at the engine block. Also the Positive cable could be shorted to ground and jumping will not help.

Why can't I remove the ignition key of 2006 Jeep Liberty while I you have if in Park and the key will not come out of the ignition?

Once I did that I could get the key out. Then I had to remove the center console cover and found that the p...
If the engine will not turn over, that is, sound like it is turning, then the trouble is a dead battery or really bad battery clamps.If the engine will not 'catch' and start running, then there are a number of causes, one of which is having no fuel.
In order for any engine to fire up you need, fuel which you have already taken care of. A spark, so check your spark plugs and the cable leads to the distributor. YOu need oxygen as well so check your hoses and make sure they arent leaking or ripped. Make sure your starter is operating properly, ...
Your 2002 Mazda 626 4cyl keeps over heating when driving down the street not even 1 mile But when left to idle in park it will not over heat what could this be?
I'd start by checking the coolant and look for leaks. I'd go further by seeing if the thermostat was good. You can grab hold of the upper hose on many cars and feel if water is flowing or getting hot.Is the fan working when your parked? Is there anything in front of your radiator. Is the water pu...
It depends on the type of car, but usually it's the keyswitch. Older vehicles sometimes have an ignition resistor that burns out, some have a switch that's part of the starter that can fail.
dead battery possibly. just a guess, you didn't give much detail.
Very well could be the ignition module but before replacing it check to see if you are getting spark to your plugs if so then that is not the problem . please include year make and model and motor to help answer these type of questions
How do I get the dashboard ignition switch out to replace my lost ignition key on my 1979 ford bronco?
There is a lock ring on the inside of the dash where the switch connects. You need to remove this lock ring to remove the switch from the dash.

yeah, but do you actually HAVE A SPARK? and is the distributor turning? Timing Belt or chain OK? also, got a book for basic troubleshooting everyone should have a manual for their vechicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available in the reference section for FREE to make ...
that's hard to say it could be as easy as battery or something like your starter theres a couple things it hard to tell with out being there
MY 03 ALTIMA HAD THE SAME PROBLEM I HAD TO REPLACE THE CAM SENSORSAND THE PROBLEM WAS SOLVE
If it is faulty or not adjusted correctly, yes.
It's probably just a loose belt. Try to have a certified mechanic diagnose it.

Your Mazda B2500 overheated you replaced the radiator but the coolant will not enter the block and the engine just heads for the red when you have to shut it off It seems as if it could be air-locked?
It is possible that it is air locked. Try squeezing the upper and lower hoses to release any air and make sure the radiator is full, sometimes jacking up the front helps. It could also be a bad thermostat so replace that if you have not done so already.
It is definitely caused by a problemtic cooling fan relay. When the bad relay shorts internally, it causes the fan to stay on at all times which drains the battery.You may have a bad relay. The year, make, model and engine info needed.
Have a 96 s10 getting gas all the way to motor will not start unless you prime has good pressure could this be injectors?
it could be the fuel pressure regulator on the back of your fuel rail or your injectorsIf it runs fine once you have primed it, I would suspect the ECT (engine coolant temp) sensor is faulty.It should also have 60 t0 66 psi fuel pressure to operated properly.
When i started my car smoke came out from under bonnet it then revved for no reason I turned it off and restarted it This time no smoke but the car still revved could this be timer belt?

Mine did this and I found a plastic plunger inside the ignition switch had broken so it only worked in the one direction. I had to turn it off by taking one battery terminal off. I had to pull the steering wheel off and it was a pain but it worked. See "Related Questions" below for instructions o...
I am not sure what causes this, but I have had times when my ignition key would not turn. The solution to the main problem is to turn the steering wheel slightly. This usually allows the ignition key to turn.
The most common reason that a car key will not turn is that the steering wheel has locked.This will happen when the steering wheel has been moved after the key has been removed from the ignition cylinder.If this does not work, rock the steering wheel as you jiggle the key in the ignition.
Not knowing the year, make, model and engine info, it may be designed to operate that way.
Broken fan belt? Seized water pump?
This is probably the starter going bad. You should have it looked at as soon as possible or replace the starter yourself.
Check your tires for proper inflation and balance, this is the only the first step, you could also have loose lug nuts or worn front end parts.

The three wires that are connected to the keyed portion of the ignition go to the processor that needs to be programmed. I was...

If the engine tries to fire, you may have bad spark plugs, be out of gasoline, or have stale gasoline i...
try testing the starter
The engine needs fuel, spark and compression. You are missing one of those.
There should be a small amount of play in the wheel when the steering is locked.Gently turn the key in the ignition while you slowly jiggle the steering wheel back and forth.If this is the cause of the problem, the key should be able to be move out of the locked position, unlock the wheel, and th...
Your car was jumping and smoking black was the carburated then you rebuild the carburated the car don't turn off but when you stop and go start to jumping and trying to turn off but not what could be?
if the car doesn't turn off and puffs black smoke and jumpy then I think that the idle is set to high on the carb turn the adjustment screw which is on the right side of the carb in front of the throtle lever turn it to the left
There could be several issues. The most likely is that there is a clogged fuel filter. Another could be a faulty timing belt.
Because below freezing temperatures can cause the chemical reaction in your vehicle's battery to exponentially slow down, a weak battery can often cause your car not to start.Most experts highly recommend changing your battery every three years if it isn't dead already.
First you must check the ISC motor ( idle speed control) operation. Its located by the throttle body. It controls idle and high idle speeds. Good luck
no this will not ruin your car BUT it will start to scrape your gear because it is not being shifted properly
I replaced the head gasket on a 2001 laganza when I started it the timing belt was a little loose I tightened it then it wouldn't start could I have messed something up when I started it with a loose?
Double check the timing marks to see if they still line up then do a compression test.Yes, that valves may have been bent while turning it over.

It could be due to your transmission about to go out or low on fluid or needing a transmission flush

It could be the engine mounts. We had to replace mine. Very tricky. Hard to get out and back in again. Best if a mechanic does it with special tools. Mine was done by a mobile mechanic with limited tools and only on car ramps and it took four hours.
Perhaps a vacuum leak at the power brake booster or the check valve on the booster.

Does the key have to be in the ignition and turned on to open the trunk or does the car need to be running?
I have yet to see a vehicle where this is necessary, although that isn't to say it doesn't exist - it's just not the norm, especially as people often access their trunk after they exit a vehicle, and without the intention of getting back into the vehicle.

When you put your 1999 Toyota Tacoma in 4 wheel drive it feels like the parking brake is on when turning on pavement What could be causing this?
When on dry pavement in 4wd the front and rear wheels are working against each other. Your forward movement is hindered by the front wheels especially in a turn, the rear wants to push you faster than the front will allow. Only use 4wd on dirt or snow.
