Quote from banzay 5 months ago Best Answer Does the dash flicker when you turn on the key? Do you hear any 'clicks' when turning the key? It could be a lot of reasons, from the electrical ignition switch under the steering wheel/column to a faulty starter motor. You have to take them step by step. First check the battery, fuses and the connections. Try banging the starter motor with a hammer or try starting it directly from the battery with a couple of sturdy wires, but have in mind to leave the car in Park and HAND BRAKE ON! Could put a couple of rock in front of the wheels.

Battery on the Optima may be the answer.. New smart phone was fiddiing with with car bluetooth drained the battery in a short time when car was turned off. The factory installed battery on this machine may be a cheapo I'm surprised...thx ior the tip!
