I have a car with 3.6L V6 and 72k miles. When brake and Start Button are pushed the dash goes black, but interior lights stay on, and will not crank/start at all(no clicking, no nothing). After 10-15 seconds, dash lights come back up as if car is running, but engine has not started. All interior lights and gauges appear to be working properly. Tried jumping the car, no go. Took the battery to be tested and it tested okay but I purchased a replacement just to be sure as the dealer had replaced the battery under warranty just 2 years before when this happened. The car still will not start. I checked the codes and only get one trouble code, U0100 "Lost communication with Engine Control Module/Powertrain control module A." I have seen several other posts on other sites regarding starting problems, but curiously, no one has posted their final resolution. Have checked all fuses and they are fine. I had been driving the car the day it started the issue. Came home shut off car, went back outside to leave and it wouldn't start. Gauges came on but went out after I pushed start button. Then it started on its own. Then it wouldn't start again. Replaced battery still no start. Guess I'm going to have it towed to the dealer. My car only has 95,000 miles on it. I'm second owner and purchased it when it had 33,000 miles. No other problems to speak of.
have the same problem?
