98

1998 Toyota Camry

115,000 miles

4cyl

Intermintent problem with the car not starting. I have power. The car will not turn over at all however. I hold the key on. And nothing. No clicking sound like a dead battery. (Not the problem)

Then after I hold the key a few times the car will fire right up.

Took it to the shop and had the battery leads changed last week. Fine for a week with no further complications. This morning it did the same thing again. Seems like there is a dead spot in the started.

Could it be anything else? If it was a relay then, wouldn't it just not start at all?
