Welcome! my name is XXXXX XXXXX I would like to thank you for allowing me to assist you! When you turn the key on, does the red security light in the instrument cluster come on and then go off?

Yes it does

Ok, good. Andrew, try this: disconnect the negative battery cable for about 2 minutes and then reconnect it. See if it will now crank.

I did unplug the neg post for about 5 minutes but the results are the same. One thing I noticed is the ignition switch when I turn it to start can't remember if it should stay in the start position or spring back to the ACC position it just stays in the start position

Hmm, it should spring back. If that is the case, then that ignition switch has probably failed. That is not common, but I have seen this before. Sounds like you have a defective switch Andrew.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
