Default 02 Cruiser, won't crank

The car acts like the neutrel switch is not letting it crank. Everything works except the cranking and no fuel to injectors. Pump runs, and gets gas to them. It hold a hole in line to fuel rail and was pushing gas out. Replaced and still no run. You can jump across starter and shoot gas into intake and it will run abit. This is a friends car and started when he had to replace the keyswitch as it locked up. Now it will not crank, as stated acts like the neutrel switch is thinkin car is in gear. HELP!!

The key has a chip in it If the chip is not recognized or the wrong key is used it wont start. The key switch is your problem. What is the whole story on the switch you put in.

Going by what he told me, the keyswitch locked up. He changed it out and had to reset the tumblers. Tried this 3 times and the switches kept locking up.This was using old key in new switch. Then current switch is in car with a new key, and they told him to just have original key in area of column/switch.

Is this somewhat correct? I have never dealt with something as done here. I just know it will turn but no crank. Everything works, pump even runs on key on, just not no fuel to injectors. And no crank. Thanks for any help you can be!!!



Where I said it will turn but no crank, I meant the key will turn, it does not crank/turn the motor over.

You need key programed to pt. Unless someone has another way.

Call the dealer, but I would say you will have to take car and key to them. First I would search here for the threads on the switch replacement. Might be something there that might help. Something they did different.
