Subject: 1993 starting issues
the sound is hard to describe - there is no sound coming from the starter, in other words it doesn't crank at all. There is a slight click sound when the key is first turned on to try and start the car but no noise or sounds afterwards (in other words if I held the key in the on position there would be no sound what so ever). After the 2nd or fifth try the car starts
So I am not sure if it is the starter not engaging or it is the ignition.
It seems that the diagnostic would have determined if the starter wasn't working properly, but it checked out. The day we brought it in for the diagnostic, after we paid our bill went to the car, the same thing happened, turn the key on, nothing, no sound, nothing. Then the third time it started.
Sounds like the ignition switch is failing or problem with the neutral safety switch at transmission also called inhibitor switch
