intermittently will not start. Only a click. Try several times repeatedly and move key around and it will eventually start. AAA Replaced battery and Dealer replaced starter motor, but problem still exists. I believe it is key switch or something electronic. Anyone have similar problem and knows the exact solution?
Engine cranks over but does not fire

Engine will not start at times and will cut off while driving. Turn signals will not work and radio will cut off without warning. Can giggle the key and sometimes get the electrical back on but not always.

Ignition won't engage when key inserted and turned on. Dealership in Escondido can't duplicate problem when in shop, cant resolve. Have had it in the ship 5-6 times over a period of six months. Acts up periodically. Never resolved problem.

Turn the key and nada. Take it out turn it over and nada. Wiggle for a few minutes and if I'm lucky, it starts.

When you remove the key, the ignition doesn't recognize that they key has been removed. The key ignition been keeps dinging. If you wiggle the key during removal most of the time it will work. This will also not allow you to engage the alarm. Taking it to the dealer tomorrow.
