Where does the fault lies in my ignition system? Turn the key and the car always cranks strongly. Normally, the car starts readily. Once started, it always runs perfectly. The problem? About 15% of the time when I turn the key and the starter cranks, it won't start the engine (it is not a flooded engine issue). I open the door and give the vehicle a short push (standard transmission), hop in, pop the clutch and away I go. This means I always park my vehicle with the perspective that it may need a push start. Ignition control module or some other component? Thanks

I put a new alternator on in October and a new battery in November, have not had any problems till this week . The battery keeps going completely dead, I put another battery in just to see if it was the new battery ,it still did it. I unhooked the alternator and the battery didn't lose its charge, I hooked back up but unpluged the pig tail in the side of the alternator, it didn't lose it charge as soon as I plugged the pigtail back in it started draining battery again. I am not sure what all is powered by the pig tail plug in, but the car runs and all the electrical lights, fans are still working. Any ideas would be appreciated.
