Wont start

on 2011 chevy prism.i cant get it to staart,lights and ignition go on but it wont crank.is there a reset switch somewhere?

How did you get a car that was made 2 years from now? Is that you Marty McFly? What happened to the Delorean?

Just kidding. Check all the fuses under the hood and under the dash.

Is this a manual trans car? (see how its important to include this info) could be the clutch switch.

It could be a safety switch (Transmission/brake/clutch) or a bad battery or battery cable/contact.

So far today we have had a 2011 and a 19994 :slight_smile:
