A pinched or crossed wire for a 91 Chevy crew cab plow could cause the lights and radio to not work. They could also be separate problems. Start but checking the marker lights fuse, then recheck all of the snowplow wiring.
it could be a bad chip in the key or the starter. i could almost gaurantee that if you keep trying to turn it on it will start. i know someone with the same problem, and he turns the key over and over and it started.
Your starter could be shot
I'm no expert, but it could be a battery or alternator related problem.
i drove over caked snow while trying to turn, the car could to back up because of the ice of the ground.After three atepts, the car could not start again ,but all the light are on and the radia still pray. Car: 2005 Toyota corolla
it probably means that you are out of gas what if it has gas? Sounds like a short in the electrical or could still be the battery
If it does not turn over, but the lights work, you have a bad starter.
Car battery is run down.
if the car does a click like it is going to turn OS but wont then yes it is the starter
Could be a battery problem, discharged, dead or dirty/loose battery connections.
It has to be your starter that has the problem. If the lights, radio and horn beep then it's definitely the starter.
the battery is dead
Weak battery or starter motor shorted out internally.
The vehicle would start from being cold every time with no problem. After the vehicle had been running for any length of time it would not start (sometimes), the radio would not work, but the ac, door bells and lights and doorlooks would work. Also, the problem was not consistent. The vehicle would start repeatedly with no problem and then wouldn't start after it had been running. At first it appeared to be the neutral safety switch (apparently the radio won't work when that part is out either) but that part was replaced and the problem continued. It turned out to be the starter relay solanoid. Hope this helps someone!
I checked again and found a broke cable. Thanks
it could be a multitude of problems: ur battery could be to the point where it barely has enough power to turn over but the radio and lights are still powered, ur alternator coulda went out and its not powering ur battery enough to start it up but ur batter still has a small charge and runs the radio and lights and such, or most likely the cillanoid on the starter is bad and u need to replace it.....or u can jus go see a mechanic and pay the money to hav the problem fixed cuz wikianswers doesn't solve everything....but good luck
Chances are it is the alternator. I had a very similar problem, but I had a short in the stereo wiring. Try to start it with the radio, a/c, lights, everything off
chip inside the key
Most likely your car battery is completley dead.
The problem may not be in the starter, but rather the alternator or battery. Your lights and radio may work because it does not require as much power. I asked the question and I have narrowed it done to one of the two possibilities: it is either the ignition switch or the anti theft start fuse under the hood. But thanks for the insight.
Some possibilities, could still be the battery, battery connections, starter, starter connections, ignition switch, starter relay and neutral safety switch.
Check for spark and fuel
In the fuse box, on the left, by the firewall.
Yes, a bad starter or starter solenoid can be the reason for a car not starting but all the lights coming on. It could be a battery going bad or being drained.
I had a similar problem with a Pontiac some years back. It was a bad dashboard ground. It may not be it, but I would start there.
