if you meen NO LIGHT in the instrument pannel just check the battery, might be really dead
If you battery has plenty of power, either faulty contacts in ignition switch or starter motor, or faulty starter motor.
If a 1997 Nissan Maxima will crank but will not start, there could be a problem with the fuel pump. Another possibility is an issue with the ignition switch.
Battery, battery cable or connections, starter problem, ignition switch not working. Be more specific please.
Be sure it is in park or neutral.
Could be the starter or ignition switch...does the car crank/turn over when you turn the key? If you just turn the key and it 'clicks' it might be the ignition switch. I've had this problem before, and it ended up being the alternator. HOpe this helps!
If the Saturn Sl2 will turn over but not start, check for ignition fire first. If there is no fire then look at the crank shaft sensor and coil pack as possible problem areas.
Defective ignition switch.
i had same problem on my 94 cutlass supreme...long story short, it was the ignition switch. $300. at shop.
Perhaps a blown fuel pump. Take a plug wire out and use a spare plug and set it on a piece of metal and crank it and look for the spark. This will eliminate an ignition problem.
The ignition switch could be bad if a Hyundai Elantra has no crank and then starts. The fuses which are tied to the ignition should also be checked.
Dead battery, faulty starter, or defective ignition switch.
the wires from the ignition switch need to be replaced.
Discharged battery Bad wiring connection, positive or negative Immobiliser fault Faulty ignition switch.
Simply switch on the key to initialize and crank the engine to activate. What kind of problem are you having to ask this type question?
Could be either a bad ignition switch or a bad voltage regulator (not opening circuit on shut-down)
No. If the starter turns over the ignition switch is good.
Its the ignition switch change it and that will stop the problem
Please go to http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/recalls/ and file a complaint. This is a common problem with IOns related to an is with the ignition switch PASSLOCK system. If you do a search on ION white wire issue on google you will find many hits for a "work around" to this issue.
might be something with starter/solenoid assembly or the crank wire circuit coming from the ignition switch.
Mine is built into the ignition switch. After you crank it turn the key back to the left slightly.
Are the lights in the dash coming on, and it just won't crank or are there no lights at all? If the lights are coming on you need an ignition switch.
Check to make sure there is power going to your coils from your ignition switch.
My first guess is that your ignition switch has gone bad, but if you have done work on the engine recently recheck your wiring.
1995 & 1996 checy trycks used a two piece ignition switch. I had this same problem and replace a bunch of stuff to find out the ignition switch was intermitting shutting the truck down so check before you spend money on parts you don't need
Not a valid assumption... ignition switch could be defective. To check which is bad... There are several places on the solenoid of interest;. There are heavy wires... one long to the battery, the other short to the starter motor itself. There are thin wires &#40; one or two&#41;... If two, one goes to ground. The other is the lead from the ignition switch. If you jumper from the battery to the heavy lead, and it starts &#40;cranks&#41; then the started motor itself is OK and you could have EITHER a bad solenoid or a bad ignition switch. If you jumper from the battery to the thin wire from the ignition switch and it cranks, then its a bad ignition switch &#40; or wire to it&#41;. If it does not crank...bad solenoid. If it does crank when you jumper the thin wire, then get a short piece of wire and climb under the dashboard. At the back of the ignition switch connect the wire between the heavy wire &#40;often purple or red&#41; and the terminal on the ignition switch with only one wire on it. If it cranks...bad switch...If it doesn&#39;t crank...wiring problem. If both of the other switch terminals have only one wire &#40;rare&#41;, then the one to jumper is the one furtherst from the heavy wire IN THE DIRECTION OF ROTATION of the switch as you go from off to on to start."
