Yes. I had trouble with my 2000 cavalier. Inside the ignition switch where the key goes is a sensor of some sort that the key hits to turn everything on. Mine went bad and nothing would come on, even though the engine would turn over it would not start. I ended up taking it to the shop & had it looked at. They found the problem with the switch & replaced it. cost about $150 part/labor
Try checking the fuses. If ok, then it is a wiring or electrical prob. You might also want to check your ignition switch. it may not be making contact properly. I found this happening on my1991 cavalier also. If I would twist the ignition like I was going to start it again, but not far enuff to grind the starter, everything would start woring again. this would sometimes last a long time and other time not so long. So, with that said I would place my money into the ignition switch.
ignition switch or key and tumbler.
One thing that could cause this would be a faulty ignition switch, specially if you do not have ignition (cluster) lights. Just a thought...
Yes, sometimes a faulty ignition switch can cause the engine to not fire. Also, a bad spark park can the engine to not fire.
A bad ignition switch, on your 1995, Mercury Voyager, will cause the vehicle not to start. In most cases a bad ignition will cause the engine not to turn over.
after replacing the stearing colum what would cause it not to start. You may have disconnected the ignition switch.
I had the same problem. I took it to a mechanic and they told me it was the ignition switch.
Ignition relay is probably shot. It is in the power distribution block in the motor comprtment.
Bad switch or transmission not completely in park. Try putting a little pressure on the gearshift.
Is it an "after-market" radio? It sounds like it was wired to a "hot" terminal that is not controlled by the ignition switch.
