Are you running the A/C at the same time? Is the engine cold or hot ?tell me first, there may be a couple of things wrong.
bad ground from either the battery or engine block to the body plus, year make and model would be helpful.
The jerking and bucking is probably along with a pop sound from the engine. This always indicated a LEAN condition with the Engine. In other words, it is NOT getting enough fuel to run under a load or that speed.
There must be a "check engine" light on. Start with investigating the DTC's (Diagnostic Trouble Codes).

Your engine overheated for whatever reason.
Battery could be low, it takes more energy to start engine Check starter wires
It's possible that the engine actually died just before the Check Engine and oil pressure lights came on. If that's the case, the problem could be little more than the engine needing a tune-up or its idle speed raised.
If the dash lights come on, but the engine won't start, check the starter. There could also be a problem with the fuel line or the spark plugs. If the engine turns over, but won't start, check all of the fuel sensors. If the motor has a clicking or buzzing sound, check the alternator.
Does the engine turn over ? Is the timing belt in one peice ? Faulty distributor ?
depress the brake pedal and turn the engine switch to the start posiiton and start the engine,,, Does this mean to hold the brake down until you hear the engine start.
After washing as i turn on the engine, the BAS light is turned on and the lights weakened and not started.
By "OFF," I have to assume that your question means that the ignition switch is "ON", but the engine is not running. IF that is what your question means, then the reason the engine warning lights turning on is that the manufacturer designed the system that way to show you that those warning circuits and lights are working, and ready to warn you after you start the engine, should there be a failure in one of the systems they represent.
Yoer engine will not provide a regular speed you will start smoking and you car will make a weird sound
I'm assuming that your steering wheel has locked. Try jerking the steering wheel back and forth while turning the key to start it.
When you attempt to start engine, nothing happens-- similar to weak or dead battery. You may hear "click" and lights may dim, but engine will not rotate
There's a solinoid in the transmission.Suggest to check that first. Turn on interior lights. Start engine. If the lights go out when the engine stalls, you have a bad ignition switch.
If your 2003 Silverado is lurching or jerking when you start it the most common issue is the fuel pump.
You lost the 12 volts feeding those lights and maybe the 12v to other ciruits including the engine control computor. Start looking for bad fuses and bad connections.
How can I start the engine on a Lincoln town car. I accidently caused the horn to keep blowing and I kept pushing buttons on the remote until it quit blowing. Then the anti theft lights were flashing on the dash and the engine would not start.
This may be a problem with the immobilizer, the engine isn't disonnecting the immobilizer from the engine, i.e. stopping the engine from being started.
The reason it wont start when the lights don't come on is because at that point your eec a.k.a. ecu,pcm or computer isn't coming on. the causes could be ignition switch or eec relay if you can locate the relay that is the most likely cause.
When your lights are on and your engine is not running you are taking the power for your car lights directly from your battery. If you leave them on long enough, you will run down your battery and your car will not start. Then you will need a jump.
Is the ecm seeing engine speed. Does the check engine light come on. Do you have at least 12 volts to ecm.
Underneath steering wheel check relay 100&103
My car wouldn't start today for awhile and the engine lights and battery light came on.What is wrong with my car?
