I put the key in the ignition for the engine to start. The lights are lit but it doesn't start. I take the key out and put it back in. Then it starts. This happens randomly throughout the day. It doesn't matter if the engine is still warm or cool.
But I was hoping if there is anyway of diagnosing the first problem. To refresh, basically I am slowing down at a stop sign or a traffic light--usually slowing from 60-50 mph. As it reaches 40-30 mph, pushing the brake slowly at 200 feet, I feel a sudden abrupt jolt. This is done randomly throughout the day too, but mainly at night when the engine is cool. I updated the TCM software, but that did nothing.
