Car won't start on first turn of key

Asked by GuruHWFKR Jul 09, 2019 at 02:31 PM about the 2013 Honda Accord

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I turn the key, the lights on the
dashboard light up, but nothing else
happens.  If I turn the key again, the car
starts right up.  This has happened several
times - first thing in the morning; when I've
stopped to pick up groceries.
Repair shop says alternator is OK.
Any ideas?

1 Answer

AAA checked battery and it is OK. Will have solenoid checked next. Thank you.
