Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Does it seem like it looses all electrical power when you attempt to start it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. Radio will play. Dashboard info lights up.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

ok, so the dash comes on and you turn the key and nothing happens?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not even a click. And it's sporadic. Sometimes it will start. Other times it will not do anything. If I wait, a few minutes, it will start. The whole issue started today.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

Next time this happens, Try wiggling the shifter or move the shifter into neutral and see if the car starts.

I am wondering if there is a shifter adjustment issue.

How often would you say this happens?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My phone is dying..FYI. It has done it three times today. I just tried starting and it worked. When it stops again I'll try your suggestion
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

Charge your phone, and return back later if you go to start it and wiggling the shifter or putting it neutral works and the car starts.
