the occasional not working leads me to believe it's loose wiring or a short in the wire somewhere

The sensor is not in your key. It is in the Key Fob, unless your car is not equipped with keyless entry. If there is no key fob than your car is not equipped with vehicle immobilization.

SOURCE: service 4WD light illuminates on the dashboard message box

this is most commonly a electrical problem, does the speedometer read out correctly? if not it may be depending on if this is a Autotrak model, one f the two speeed sensors, or the acuator on the front diff, put the truck in 4wd, check the front dirveline to make sure it is engaing, if not your problem is in the t-case, if it does then move to the tires, if they are not engaged you have a problem with the actuator.

in most cases i have found the actuall 2wd 4wd switch to be the problem if you find that the switch is acting slow or you need to select the gear a few times before it shifts, then replace it these are very faulty

This could be a grounding problem. Check all battery connections. Also check motor to body ground strap for corrosion. Check battery to motor ground and battery to body ground. Even if the ground looks allright it can be corroder underneath, so you have to take the ground bolt off to clean it.

Engine wont turnover


If what you're trying to say is that the engine will start when you turn your ignition key to the 'start' position but then quits as soon as you allow the key to revert to the 'run' position, that's exactly how our 2000 Caravan is sometimes acting this winter (earlier, in warmer weather, the symptom was that the starter sometimes would not run in the 'start' position).

I'm still researching possibilities (since the van, while worrisome, still always eventually runs), but my current suspected culprit is deterioration of the contacts in the ignition switch (you can find references to this kind of intermittent switch behavior in Web searches, which is how I happened upon your question). I'll try to get back here later to say how things worked out for us and with more detail on how to replace the electrical portion of the switch if that's indeed the problem.

2006 Cobalt LS Coupe Intermittent Starting Problem


sounds about right, probably is ignition switch, reason you don't get codes is because if power is'nt connecting to engine while problems occurs then ecm won't pick it up. you should have 2 ignition switches, (the lock cylinder and key switch, the other is the electrical, usually located under the dash, and commonly atttatched to the column close to the firewall, check connections first, it may just be a loose plug in connection

Dashboard lights on my 325i automatic 1993 come on intermittently


If the dash has been apart it is possible that some of the screws have been put in the wrong places. A long screw where a short one should be will sometimes make contact with circuit board in dash and cause an intermitant short.

2003 civic intermittent stall


I think you may have either a battery cable issue or more likely a ignition switch problem, most Japanese cars use the same design switch and I have seen the issue on other cars.
