I was having problems with the car not starting at times, turn the key and nothing would happen and the next time it would work fine. I replaced the ignition switch and now the car starts every time but none dash lights, radio or fan will come on. The next time you start it everything will work fine. What is causing this problem.


Sounds like a poor electrical connection somewhere. See if there is a relay in the fuse panel associated with these functions. If so, you could replace that. Without schematics for the car it will be tough, but look for wiring that could be damage ... 2003 Oldsmobile Alero

2000 Olds intrigue: When i turn the key nothing happened. All the lights came on (like they would if it normally started). There was no clicking noise - nothing. I tried shifting the car from park thru the gears and back to park - nothing. I waited for a couple of hours and tried again and at first try - nothing, but turned the key a few more times and it started. I drove the car home, turned it off and started it several times without issue. This is the first time this has happened.

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?

Hi, This morning I tried to start my 2001 Lexus es300-nothing, no cranking. A few of the dash lights flashed on briefly.
