why engine won't start?
Early in the morning on the way to work I stopped at 711 store for coffee. Returned in 5 minutes to find out the engine won't start. no clicking no noise at all when the key turned to ignition. I have a brand new battery. after about a dozen attempt, it started as normal. I went to work and parked the car and returned about 2 hours later to see if it starts. It did not. This time I tried many more times and nothing happened. dead silence each key turn. I told everyone at work that I needed a push start when quitting time comes. However, when quitting time came after about 6 hours later, It started at first attempt with no problem. Upon returning to home I tried to start every half an hour and it started just fine at each try. What should I do?
First, check the battery and starter cables for their tightness or free of corrosion and physical damaged.
