2009 corvette will not start

2009 corvette will not crank, the battery, relays, key fob, and starter are good. I was going to take it out for a drive but wouldnt start all the dash lights come on when i push the start. Any ideas on what can be the problem?

IF it's a manual, check the clutch switch.
Very similar discussion of your very symptoms at another forum.
Was his clutch switch.

You might double check the battery if it's not brand new. My 2009 had similar symptoms - dash lights on, but some crazy codes, etc, and zero cranking. Battery was not very old, but replacing the battery fixed it.

Thanks for the replys. It's an auto, I put the car in neutral position and no luck, no codes at all are on. Everything seems normal just no crank. Battery voltage is over 12v

It's possible for the battery voltage to measure over 12 v and have zero cranking capability. I would either get the battery load tested or try another battery to be sure.

Still could be a shifter position sensor/switch. Also, have you checked all the fuses? Doesn't seem like a fuse could cause this, but who knows what upsets a computer .... er, I guess some guys do, but I don't.

Good luck.

REALLY glad it was an easy solution.

Could have been worse:
Many years ago (a Camaro) I had concluded my battery was bad and I replaced it with one from a close by parts house. Then click, click. It didn't fix the problem. I checked all the wires and fuses, then replaced the solenoid on the starter. I finally took the battery out of another car, hooked it up, and it started. I didn't own a GOOD charger at the time. I returned the "new" battery that was bad, went to Sears, and bought the first of many to follow Die Hard batteries.

BTW, I now own a REALLY good charger that shows a lot of information at the push of a button. Well worth the $$ IMO.
