Symptom: turn key on and have lights, power, and voltage reading a little over 12v. Turn key to start and starter does not engage - meter does fall to 8 or 9. No ticking noise or anything - just nothing happens. Battery and cables are pretty new. Starter was replaced last year, and dealership has bench tested and says it is good; also said neutral safety switch is good. It may be coincidental, but sometimes stepping on the brake pedal then turning the key gets it going, and other times moving gear selector gets it going (there is excess play in the selector), other times nothing. I can return to the car an hour later, and doing nothing but inserting the key and turning it, the car starts right up.
have the same problem?
