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

Is it more like a rapid clicking noise when you try to start it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not really. It sound like its crank to start but then stops
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

Do you feel the engine is not turning over long enough to start?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No it usually starts instantly. So I don't think that is the problem
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

Try this.. Press the gas pedal all the way, and press and hold the start button. The engine will continuely turn over as long as you are holding the start button. Try holding it for about 10 seconds and see if the engine wants to start.. If it starts to start, release the throttle and see if it will start.

Give that a try and let me know how you make out

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That didn't work. I notice that the number under my miles is now 0. And my gas mile is just dash even though I got a full tank 4 days ago
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry I was at work so I couldn't do it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
my brake pedal is also hard to press and it's not normally like that
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

It is normal for the pedal to get hard after pressed a couple times when the car is off.

What does the gas gauge read when the key is in the ON position?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The mile till empty has a bunch of dashes. The Meter is a little under a full tank
