Turn key over and just get a clicking noise. Does not happen every time but is getting more frequent. If I turn the steering wheel hard one way or the other it will start. Help please!
Do you
have the same problem?

It sounds like the battery is getting weak or you have a bad connection at the battery cable.

Here are a few guides that should help us get the problem fixed:

Battery is good and I have cleaned all the connections. I have seen on some forums possibly ECM? If I turn the key several times it eventually starts with no hiccups. Sorry to be a pain but I have been pulling my hair out. LOL

Have you checked the ground strap between the engine and the body? There must be a large cable or strap between the engine block and the chassis/frame.

Send me a video when you find it.
