Possibly the security system or transmission interlock. Try using other key and/or mess with the shifter while trying to start. If you have automatic, try starting in neutral. I have posted some tips here: http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines

Stoped runing andwill not start


If it stopped in a second, the cause is electrical problem. If it stopped more gradually, over several seconds, it is usually fuel related. If you put the key in the ignition and turn it to run, not start, are there lights on the dashboard panel? If you turn the key to the start position, does the engine rotate? Sometimes I have to turn the key to start position several times before it works and the engine rotates.

I have 2000 vw bettle, 2.0 auto., starts sometimes and sometimes u have to turn key several times before starting sometimes it will not start for days... i replaced fuel pump and relay ,, crank senc. ...


I've had this problem and it drove me crazy because I had just brought the car and it went ok for the drive home and then I went to start it again and it took ages to get it started. ( hated driving it).. I changed the oil and filter and it started first time every time.. But now have a new problem.. If I knew the problems these cars had I would never have brought one.. It makes a pretty lawn ornament though...

Sometimes I turn the ignition key to start my 2007 4.7 v-8 tundra pickup & I just here a click after trying several times the starter engages . Not several clicks just one . After checking battery...


The problem is the starter solenoid. It will steadily get worse until it just won't start anymore. The solenoid has corrosion between the contacts. When you turn the key the contacts are not making connection. The corrosion will get a little worse each time you crank it.

1999 Boxster won't start sometimes


Yes. It may have a weak magnet on it. Otherwise it would be the ignition or control module. Try replacing key first.

1997 lhs, won't always start when the key is turned. Sometimes I have to turn the key several times before it will start, other times it will start on the first turn. What is the problem?


Check the fuel pressure. You're just getting lucky one in awhile starting it. The fuel pump is toast & change the fuel filter too.

Won't start sometimes


Hmm, sounds like starter. Next time it will not start, don't hold the key for almost a minute. Try turning the key several times if no luck, grabb a hammer and LIGHTLY tap on starter. If it turns over normally then, starter is going out.
