My '02 WRX with 75k miles failed to start 2 weeks ago. While the battery seemed OK, the interior lights came on and the internal chimes were working, when I turnted the key to start it nothing happened. No starter noise, nothing, nada, zip. Trying it again 10 minutes later if started fine and ran/started fine for the next 2 weeks.
Yesterday, it did the same thing again. This time I twisted the steering wheel hard and move the shifter lever (auto.) around a bit. When I tried again it started just fine. As the battery cables are tight and the connections clean, what do you think is the problem?
Is there a "safety switch" in the steering column or shifter assembly that is out of adjustment, or do I have a starter/solenoid/relay type problem?
Thanks for your help!!!
