My car won't start when I turn my key

Asked by Oct 24, 2016 at 10:33 PM about the 2004 Chevrolet Impala LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2004 Chevy impala would not start i wait a few
minutes then it cranks, this has been going on for a
while then one day it did it again I waited like any
other time but it never started again. I turn my key
it does nothing but make a small sound ... So I put
a metal hanger to my starter and it started then cut
right off, so I switch my starter and still the same
thing so I figured it was my ignition switch, I
changed that and still the same thing, my battery is
good and charged, cables are good , if anyone may
know what the problem may be I would really
appreciate your feedback. Thanks!!

I should have tried that 1st probably would of save me some money if that's the problem. Would that be the reason i hear a clicking noise in my fusebox when I try to start it??
