Chevy Cobalt 2008 - Key will turn in ignition but doesnt start the engine. I cannot remove the key, nor turn the stearing wheel or change gears from park to nuetral. The lights on my car were all on, my battery was NOT dead prior to this happening. The battery died because my key is stuck in ignition. When I would turn the key to start the engine, the display would show a car with a lock and the transmission light. It would aslo make an odd clicking noise. Similar noise as the blinker

When I turn the key in my Lexus ES 300 the dashboard lights up, but it won't start. For the past month, I would turn the key and the dash would light up and do nothing, but if I tried turning the key again, it would then start. Now it won't start at all. Three weeks ago, I tried turning the key and none of the lights were on, so I had the battery charged at Autozone. They completely charged the battery and the car was fine. Now two weeks later, it won't start at all?

When we tried to start our 2007 Suzuki XL-7 this morning, we heard a loud crack (like an electrical spark). Now when you turn on the key. all lights, radio, etc. work fine. Turning the key to start the engine results in a single click from under the hood but the starter does not turn. Battery connections are good and battery is fine (all other electrical systems work fine and do not drag down when trying to start the car as would happen with a weak battery or bad battery connection).

A couple days after that I got in my car but it would not turn over, no power, and I couldn't get my keys out of the ignition. turned out that when the guy replaced the battery he did not tighten the cables.

Car won't start when I turn the ignition key. I put in a new battery thinking that might be the problem but that didn't work. When i intitially turn the key one click some of the lights come on in the display like the battery light oil, and seat belt.

Has 4.0 engine I bought this car 8 days ago. It started fine till yesterday. Now it won't start, When you turn the key it would crank over like only one revolution. I've pulled the battery and starter and had them checked out at my local autozone. They tested out okay. I still have the starter out because it sits underneath the intake manifold.

I have a 96 VW Jetta. Last night I tried to unlock the car with the key. The key would turn in the lock but the automatic locks did not disengage. A friend ran a wire down inside the door and pulled the lock up. This set off the alarm. Now the when the key is in the ignition and I try to start it, the dash lights come on but the car makes no effort to turn over. The hazard lights also begin flashing. Jumping the battery made no difference. I don't know what I need to do to start my car.

PORSCHE 944 Starting issue: ok, so i have a big question. The starter itself is good. i just had it tested and didnt believe them and crossed the ground and hot and it started to turn. so it does work. (sorry autozone). No faith. so when I turn the key in the car i hear the fuel pump activating. Am I wrong to think that it could be something else? The battery has a 97% charge.
