Car won't start, just clicks when I turn the key, I have a new starter and new battery. I'm being told it might be the ignition how would I know if that's the problem?
Cross the sylinoid on the starter,if it turns over,it will be the ignition.
Is that why you changed the battery and starter, or did this problem start after you did that work? If so recheck all connections. Could easily be a loose one, especially a bad ground. If there's enough power getting through to make it click, its unlikely that its your ignition. Also if the battery is new but you haven't had the car running since you put it in, make sure it is fully charged. A new battery should be charged, but you need to be sure. Will it start when boosted from another car?
is it possible that the key has anything to do with it not starting. it started last nite then boom nothingnot even a click and we couldnt get the key out
Not likely the key. Perhaps it’s not properly shifted into park. Or possibly a wiring issue at the base of the steering column. There is an electrical solenoid that needs to be working to release the key and may affect starting as well try tilting the steering wheel to another position.
