    My mechanic says it's the starter that's going bad. Total: $290 for a rebuilt starter and installation with 1 year warranty. Thanks again for your help.

Gs 300 ignition switch

Best guess is the Solinoid (on top of the Starter) is the cause.
There will be a Main cable from the battery bolted onto the Solinoid. Near this (a separate terminal) will be a much thinner wire. This supplies the current from the ign. Sw. to the Solinoid.
Disconnect it. Re-Connect the battery.
If this doesn't fix the problem, Repair the Starter Motor.
If this fixes the problem, turn the Ign. Sw. on and touch the wire back to the terminal.
If the problem is back, the problem is the Ign. Sw.

Car unable to startup

either the starter motor is loose or the teeth are stripped from the starter motor which means it cant connect to the flywheel to turn the engine

96 accord - turn key, nothing happens. bad ignition switch? help!

Could be.

Also the jiggling thing could be a coincidence. :0)

Tell me this.... when you turn the key, do you hear a CLICK?? If so your starter is probably bad.
