98 Chevy S10. Wont start, i put it on neutral and then it starts. Why?


Asked by Aug 31, 2016 at 04:59 PM about the 1998 Chevrolet S-10 2 Dr LS 4WD Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So like the title says, sometimes my truck wont start, there is no click or noise at all.  I turn the key all the way and the dash lights all come on for a sec and then go away like they normally do but the engine isn't on.  So what I used to do was just put it on neutral cause I heard it was some anti-theft/security thing and then crank it and it would turn on.  The problem would be fixed for a couple weeks then come back and id repeat the process and it would work.  However, today my truck wouldn't start so I did my usual neutral method and that didn't work either.  what could have been the previous problem? And what could be the new problem? And are they related?
