This is my son's first car, has about 160,000 miles and has started locking up with anti theft shut down where the switch will turn, lights on the dash but starter will not engage. If we wait hours (minimum of 2-3) it will then start. Have stopped using the clicker in case that is the problem it is very worn out. Don't want to spend lots on it cause it isn't worth it.
