I let it sit overnight and it starts the next day. It does this from time to time. The battery is new the fuel pump is good, the fuses are good. It doesn't do it all the time, but I don't understand why it does it. It's not the neutral safety switch. I'm lost. Thanks

Hi and thanks for using 2CarPros.

When it doesn't start, does the starter engage turning the engine, but the engine fails to start? If so, you are losing spark or fuel to the engine. Take a look through this link to see if anything is helpful.

If the problem is the starter doesn't engage, let me know.

Follow that link and let me know if it helps. If you require additional information or have other questions, let me know.
