Hello, my name is***** no start do you even hear the starter click? THanks.
If starter clicks that most likely means the starter itself has failed. Next step is to monitor power on the two wires going to starter during the problem. They should both show at least 11v when trying to start and case should have good ground. If all 3 test good then replace the starter. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
Does engine turn over but not start or not even turn over? Thanks.
During problem monitor voltage on starter. Let me know if large wire or small wire have less then 11v when trying to start, also check for good case ground. Depending on what you find will determine our next step. Let me know, thanks.
I want to help but without any testing it is going to be close to impossible. I need you to check power at the starter during problem to see if voltage is missing then follow the trail back to problem.
have you played with your ignition switch at all? When it acts up remove the bezel cover on your steering column and whack the ignition swicht with a screwdriver handle a bunch while holding it to crank, I know that seems ridiculous but try. If nothing there hook up your scan tool and see if you can still talk to all the modules when it occurs.
keep me posted, i might have a bit of slow response times over the weekend but i will stay in contact
