My 1998 Ford Contour GL 2.0 BOHC has been having issues starting. Every now and then it doesnt want to start but the lights will come on and no clicking noise. You can hear a humming sound which sounds like the fuel pump working. Within about 4 hours of waiting it will crank right up. Jumping will not help since the lights are working the battery should be dead. What should I do?

Have you tried moving gear shift to neutral when this happens? If it works this would indicate a possible bad neutral saftey switch on trans.
