    Hi Gary

    I maybe a bit late to comment on your starting issues but just in case you still have problems, my car would start after a few attempts, we would drive it out and back turn off the ignition and try to re start it to no avail.

    We replaced a relay (that wasn’t the answer) eventually we tracked it down to a micro switch near the base of the T Bar shift , if you pull the T Bar slightly out of park and the car starts then you need to replace that micro switch.
