Hey all,

I have a 2009 RRS HSE.

It started on Saturday....put my key in the ignition, turned it and nothing for a moment, then it started.

Then it ran fine the rest of the day.

Sunday...it began to start, stopped, then started....nothing more the rest of the day.

Today, go to leave for the office and it did noting when I tried to start it, turned the key off, and tried again and it started right up.

Sitting at my office wondering the next step.

Here is my plan, and I am looking for suggestions...

1- check battery terminals
2- Check for loose engine ground on the bonnet hinge
3- try to find the starter and look for loose wiring connections...

Beyond that?

Thanks for all the advice, and thankfully it is no long er 9 degrees outside to work on her.

Chris

You should definately check all those items, but I think you'll find it is your starter. My 06 started doing that about 18 months ago. First it wouldn't turn over when the key was turned every once and a while, then it would take two or three times turning the key about once a week to get the car to turn over, finally one day it just wouldn't crank at all. Replaced the starter and all has been fine since then. Note that you need to have triple jointed elbows half a dozen different size socket extensions and, long skinny alien fingers to reach the upper bolt on the starter, and a mirror to see it, other than that it's not a tough job.

If you have used the same key each time this occurred, try using another key. Could be a bad transponder in the key. I had a similar issue and it was the key.
