Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

What has the dealer done?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
the dealer has replaced a harness from the ignition to wherever and just replaced the ignition fuse . None of this has made any difference. there is no contact from the ignition to the starter, it takes several tries to make contact.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
The car may start okay today, the next day, it may or may not start, normally.

Is it starting right now? We need tt to be acting up to test it.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
but it is not here, my girlfriend is driving it.
Expert:  Kavey replied 8 months ago.

Well if shes driving it it wouldnt help to have it there anyway. We need it to be acting up to test it. We just gotta trace the circuit from the key to the starter and see where we are losing connection.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
can I get back with you when the car is here?
Expert:  Kavey replied 8 months ago.

Yep. Just reply to this same post. Ill be around all day.
