Hi
I went to start my car for work this morning, and the starter won't engage. The battery seems fine, but the engine won't turn over. It doesn't even try.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes

Try to tap on the starter with the key in the crank position. This may jar it enough to start cranking. If so, get a starter.

I assume the lights on the dash are present when key is moved to on position.

I had to take the car to the dealer. The problem according to them was that the computer won't recognize the key, so they had to reflash the computer.
Thank you very much for your help.
