Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you're able to move the wiring and reliably get it to start then you have a wiring or connection issue or possibly a bad ignition switch. You could be moving the wiring enough to move the ignition switch and allow it to start.

Odds are you have a connection or wiring issue. The first thing I would suspect is there is an aftermarket remote start or alarm installed and there are poor connections because of it. Remote start and alarm installations are often done poorly and connections are sub par which will cause problems in the future. You may be moving wiring enough to disturb one of these poor connections.

the firt thing you'll need to do is remove the knee blocker and possibly the steering column shroud, look for any obvious wiring or connection issues and you can wiggle test wiring to allow it to start, and try to locate the poor connection you're disturbing to allow it to start.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.

Thank you so much for your answer. My initial estimate was $325; I got it done for $100 - part and labor.
