Why would a car not start and the temp needle go all the way to hot when the key is turned to the 'start' position?
HUGE short in the wiring. i would check for any disconnected wires that are laying against metal. i would also trace the wire from the temp sensor to the dash to see if it is broken and/or shorting out.. Answer . because the car is overheated and its too hot to start. when you turn the key to th…e start position the fan should kick on and try to cool the car off. the problem is the thermostat. you will have to replace the thermostat to prevent future overheating.. some vehicles have a temp guage test when cranking, such as the 82-92 F bodies(camaros and firebirds) they will peg over to HOT during crank, if they dont then it has failed the test and guage is faulty.. the temp guage "issue" may be perfectly normal depending on the year make and model. most likely this is not related to the no start condition make sure it has spark, make sure the fuel pump pumps up pressure with key in RUN position(warning lights all on). check the computer codes for stored problems. good luck (MORE)
What would be the matter with a car that is completely dead and the accessories would go on only before attempting to start it why wont the key come out of the ignition?
Answer . \nThere's actually nothing wrong with your car. If it's a late model, this is a standard feature. Most sales people aren't aware of the feature because they don't bother to read their training stuff. I used to sell Hummers and I first noticed this on H2's that had been sitting for a whil…e. The batteries would die and as soon as you put the key in it was stuck. We'd have to put a charger on the battery before we could get the key out. Actually the batteries didn't have to be completely dead. The system was designed to kick in when the battery fell below a certain voltage. We could still run the radio but wouldn't be able to get the key out. GM explained it to us as a theft prevention device. I never really bought that but that's what they said. At any rate, it's not a malfunction if you're talking about a late model car. (MORE)
On a 1994 Nissan Altima if the battery is good and all of the electrical items work why when you turn the key to start would it just click?
a few electrical self-help tests you can run to isolate the starting problem are: turn on the headlight & then try to start the car. if the hedlights dim then you are getting a good strong connection to the starter. If the clicking sound occurs then its a weak battery. If no headlight dimming, then …check all the connectors from the battery to the starter. this happens to me all the time... this works everytime: -turn the key forward 1 click but dont try to turn it on -put the parking break on -put the car in the gear labeled "1" -put the car back into park -take the parking break off -start the car never fails-maybe its just my car but i found that out when the 2nd day i bought it it didnt start...and i just messed around with it like that until i figured out how to fix the problem. I had the same problem on my 1995 Altima. The starter was the problem. Had to be replaced. (MORE)

1994 Caravan recent tune up battery alternator good you go to start it after it has sit overnite and the key turns but wont crank it will usually start after a few attempts or a jump?
Answer . This may be a dumb question, but did you remember to plug your new alternator in? I installed a new alternator on my truck but never plugged it in, so it wasn't charging the battery and kept dying.

Answer . \nAny of the following....\nBad battery, bad starter, bad ignition switch, bad neutral safety switch
Why would an Acura Legend when you turn the key try to start but when you let go it doesn't catch Is this an issue with the starter Or something worse?
It would be your ignition lock not cathing and needs to be replaced. I have 90 acura legend L. Problem is bad ignition switch. They are about $70 at autozone.
Answer . \ncould be your neutral safety switch, turn the key just part way on, then put your jeep in neutral and try starting it. I had this problem with my 1995 jeep cherokee.
Why would a 1997 Toyota Tercel have no electric current to the plugs it will turn over but wont start?
i had the same problem. i have a two door 97 Toyota tercel with auto transmission. it was a fuse for the ful injector. there was an extra one in the black fuse box under the hood. try this
Answer . 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.
Answer . \nThe ignition lock has several positions; Off/locked, off, accessory, on, and start. The start position is what is called a 'momentary' switch, in that it will not stay in that position. When holding the key in the 'start' position, the battery sends current to the solenoid, which sw…itches the current to the starter motor. When the starter motor is energized, the solenoid pushes the gear on the starter motor shaft forward to engage the ring gear on the flywheel of the engine, allowing the starter motor to turn the crankshaft. On Ford vehicles, the solenoid only switches the current to the starter motor, and the motor spinning throws a gear forward to engage the ring gear. In either case, turning the key energizes the starter motor, which turns the engine over. (MORE)

96 Bonneville wont start after turning the key driving it yesterday the car would start but when you turned it off the car would not start then tried it again and it did start now it will not start?
From your description I would say you could rule out the battery but not the alternator (the part that charges the battery) but it's most likely the starter
Why won't my 2002 trailblazer start when i turn the key my battery is fine and dash lights come on but i get nothing from starter?
Answer . seized engine? bad starter solenoid? bad starter? loose or corroded battery cable? bad neutral switch?
Why wont your 2001 explorer start It wont turn over or anything it will if you turn the key back and forth a bunch but not today?
Dead or weak battery?. Bad starter solenoid?. Loose or corroded battery cable?. Bad starter?. bad neutral safety switch?
The VT Commodore might turn over a few times and then start ifthere are teeth missing on the flywheel. The starter wires mightalso be shorting out or loose.
If it is simply just turning past where it should catch and turn on then it is a module inside. I'd take it to a mechanic I had same issue.
Radio stays on for several min after the key is removed from the ignition in a 03 Honda Pilot Just starting doing this used to go off when car was turned off and key was removed Any ideas?
In a 2003 Honda Pilot it is normal for the radio to stay on for upto 15 seconds as programmed in the multiplexer module. However, ifthe radioÃis on for more than a minute, there is a stick relayproblem.
Most likely, your steering lock has engaged. You simply need toturn the steering wheel in either direction while you turn the keyand it will start right up.
My 94 Toyota corolla ex clicks once when i turn the key and engine wont turn. the 2nd or 3rd time i turn the key it does start but even then it clicks and then starts?
The starter solenoid/relay switch is going bad. Eventually, it will just click and not start.
your steering column is locked up. try turning the steering wheel left and right as you turn the key. but try turning the wheel with a lil umph! That's one possibility, some others are, the car is not all the way in park or the pin for the lock release in the lock tumbler is stuck. Simple fix - get …a heavy duty paper clip, straighten it out. Now carefully feel both top and bottom pins from front to back and back to front of the key slot. One of the pins is stuck. Just passing over them can unstick them. All the pins should move freely, one will even set off the buzzer for key in the ignition as you pass over it. After a few minutes of trying this, ignition should be unlocked. In my case, I felt it jump back into place. This was after leaving the truck (1997 Ford Expedition) in a shopping center lot over night. I was minutes away from calling a tow truck. This is worth trying and can save you big $$$. (MORE)
Why would a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer randomly not start when you turn the key the interior lights go on but it won't turn over tried to jump it?

When turning key on 98 Chrysler LXi the starting motor wont crank But why is the electrical system clicking like a Christmas tree?
The battery is almost dead if the relays are clicking off and on really fast.
Your car wont start its not the battery alternator and its not clicking like your starter is going out when you try to turn it over it does nothing but turn the electrical elements what could it be?
Your electrical elements are going up and you need new ones.. same problem happened to me!
Why would the oil dash light in a 1970 Beetle not turn on when the key is in the start position it comes on won't start and when you try it again the light won't go on?

The battery is probably dead. Test the voltage of the battery with your volt or multi-meter, with the vehicle off it should read about 12.5v. Anything less than 12, and you have a dead battery. Try getting someone to assist you in jump starting the vehicle. If that works, make sure there is no un-ne…cessary current draw on the battery after the vehicle has been switched off such as a car stereo, or the dome light. (MORE)
You should check your voltage on your battery first to make sure it is not dead.. You should check your battery cables if your battery checks out to be fine
Start with the battery terminals, see if they're corroded (between the battery post and the terminal. It doesn't matter WHAT the outside looks like). If that's not it, it could be that the battery has insufficient charge to operate the starter. LAST on the list would be the starter or the starte…r solenoid/relay, but have it tested before you replace it. (MORE)
You have to take it to the dealer ship because the key needs to be programed to the vehicle. key has a chip embedded in it. when you take it to the dealership make sure to bring all the keys for the truck that you have to be programed so that it can be done right the first time.
Sounds like it could be your battery, it might just need a jump.. If not try banging your starter alittle with a hammer.
2006 Chevy Colorado 5cyl sometimes i have trouble starting it Turn the key let go of it and it keeps on like I'm holding key too long It acts like it wants to start but wont but will 10 min later?
Your having a problem with the passlock system. Contact your dealer and thell them the situation. They will need to change the ignition cylinder. I had this problem a couple fo years age and it took 5 trips to the dealer before they got it right. They changed the computer module , some sensors, and …many other things. But, changing the ignition cylinder did the trick. (MORE)
First, remove the fuse box cover under the hood on rt fender and have someone turn the key over to listen for a clicking sound. If this sound is heard, the starter relay is working. Next, use a multimeter and turn it to 20 VOLTS and touch the positive and negative terminals with the approprate leads… and if the battery reads 12 or slightly higher, the battery is okay. The other option is to revove the battery and take it to AutoZone and let them check it. If that proves to be okay, it is very likely the starter.. Replacing the starter is easy and can be seen from the top-side of the engine. Remove negative battery terminal, after the breather assembly has been completey removed the starter is accessible. To remove breather holder, there are two bolts in the bottom that will allow you to remove the entire assembly.. There are two bolts on each side of the starter, unplug its wires and just remember how you took them off. There are just a couple of wires. Take your time and pay attention to what you are doing and you will be fine. (MORE)
I have a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme and had the same problem. The solution to mine was the following:. I had a loose nut on the linkage to the transmission located under the hood. Before the fix I would have to turn the car on in Neutral.. While I was looking at the trans from under the hood …I had a friend shift the trans and I saw the loose nut. Tightening it down the first time didn't work, so I had to back off on the nut, then move around a plastic piece it was attached to. I then tightened it and it was fixed.. I hope this helps you.

My 02 lancer wont start battery works and when you turn the key you hear cliking but engine wont turn?
Your battery is dead (even though you have some power), jump start it and when car is running test voltage to see if alternator needs to be replaced. Also ensure battery terminals are properly secure if you have no luck.

There are a few things that would make a Chevy van not start. Thefirst things to check would be the battery, the alternator, and thestarter.
Without knowing the make and year it's impossible to speculate. Could be a low battery not spinning it over fast enough, a bad ECM, a broken distributor, a failed ignition coil or any number of other things -.
You must turn the wheel back and forth while turning the key. This will unlock the key and allow it to turn.
Low battery power, or probably a loose battery terminal or ground wire. Follow and check em all...!!
A sing l e click is usually a failed starter. A repeated fast clickis either a weak battery or a dirty battery cable.
Why does 87 Mercedes 300d turbo does not start and the key would go all the way once but then locks and the music plays and lights turn on?
All Mercedes cars will only go to the "Start" position only once, to prevent the initiation of the starter while the engine is running. Check the glow plug light before you try to start the engine. The light has to go out before you start the car. If the light doesn't come on, then you may have a pr…oblem with your glow plug relay, or one of your glow plugs is dead. (MORE)
Check if your battery connections are tight and clean. Grasp them and try to twist, if you can they are not tight enough. -Get a meter, check battery voltage, it should be 11.8- -12,3 at rest. If it's below 11.8 that's your problem. Try charging it on low for 12 hours, It may come back to full power…. If not, you need a new one. (MORE)
When a Chrysler town and country key turns in ignition but now car wont start been using remote start to start the last few mouths and it would start just fine now car isn't responding all have all?
The first problem was a bad ignition switch. There is a possibility that something in the key circuit has gotten bad enough that it is preventing the car from starting at all. There are a couple of connections shared between the remote start and the key start.
