Car Sometimes Won't Start

Asked by Jan 11, 2017 at 12:40 PM about the 2000 Buick LeSabre Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our car is in great condition with a brand new battery.  Ever since we've
had this car it sometimes won't start.  We always thought it was a starter
problem.  Our mechanic ran a computer test and it didn't show anything
wrong with the starter. When this happens, you can sometimes turn the key
twice quickly and it will start. It makes kind of a clicking sound when you do
this. We never know when this will happen and sometimes it doesn't
happen for months. Any ideas?

There is a bad connection or a cable going bad possibly, may want to try a new starter relay, cheap try. The other thing this sounds like would be the ignition switch. May want to have these things checked out.

The bad ignition is a known problem...
