intermittent starting issue
My wife's 2003 Taurus has developed an intermittent starting issue.
Once every couple of weeks or so it will not start. It follows no pattern (as in cold/hot). Dash lights come on, but no clicking/cranking, or any other noise. Every time so far, if you turn the key 5 or six times, it will start, and then everything's fine until the next time.
The car has a new battery, alt., starter, starter relay. I checked the battery terminals and they seem fine.
Could the ignition switch itself be going out?
I read a post from maxx powers that mentioned a "known problem with the 'ign' terminal on the starter". Is this more likely?
Any ideas would be appreciated.
