Wife reports that often when she presses the start button the car begins the start process but does not complete it, She must repeat several times then the car starts and runs fine.
Is this a new issue with this car?
Or a new to you car ?
I know in my moms Prius, you just get in, put your foot on the brake,
push the start button (gas engine doesn’t start)
Put it in gear and go.
A failing 12 volt battery will cause ignition on/start issues.
