    starting problems..?

    Aright so here is my delema. Sometimes whenever I go to start my car..mainly after its been running, it doesnt seem to want to start.

    Ill get in the car and wiggle the stick to make sure its in neutral and hold the clutch and turn the key and NOTHING...not a click, tick, or anything...my dash lights stay on for diagnostics (whatever it always does before you start the car anytime).

    After about turning it for 3 or 4 times and holding the key it will finally kick in and the starter will engage. Battery voltage is fine too...could this be a sensor gone bad or anything?

    i would like a to hear some opinions on this as well. just a few days ago mine did the samething. i got in my car turned the key and it acted as if there was no battery or any power hooked up to it. i took the key out and put it back in, maybe 4-5 times and then it started up as if nothing was wrong. this has only happened maybe twice, any ideas?

    someone said about $13...but one guy said he just took it out and plugged it back in and it worked fine with no problems after that

    I changed the relay in mine and it still does the same thing as you guys describe above.. when I go to start me car it doesn't crank or nothing.. I do hear a tick or click noise.. But it sounds like its comning from the relay when they make contact.. and cycle it back and forth but nothing.. Some people say its the ignition switch other's say the starter.. but i'm not to sure.. hopefully someone on here will have the answer..
