We Don't do anything to try to fix it, it turns on by its self. This started about a month ago. It tries to start but it doesn't, engine shakes after I stop turning the key. Thank you

Is it humid or raining when this occurs? My 05 goes through 2 distrubutor caps a year due to moisture build up. Once it dries out starts beautifully.

It hasn't been for a while, but wen it started to do it it was. Do you think

That has been my experience. It is quite annoying. And people think you are crazy when a few days later it all of sudden starts working. It's a pain in the butt to change though. You have to take off the console to get to the back of the engine. I would try that. Something I learned was I can easily wear out my starter which seems tiny for such a big vehicle. Good luck!
