2013 Mustang GT periodically will not start.
Hello all again! (Just did my introduction post)
I am the brand new owner of a 2013 Mustang GT Premium Convertible. I am experiencing an issue that I find extremely annoying and one that could potentially leave me stranded.
This issue has occurred twice since I purchased the car on Wednesday, 2 days ago. Once last night, and once this afternoon.
ISSUE: The car refuses to start (no starter engagement, turn key- nothing) for many attempts. I have clutch fully depressed, car in gear, e-brake engaged. This is how I would expect it to start every time. It has had two episodes where I'm sitting in a parking lot for 15 minutes trying to start the vehicle, and making sure what I'm doing is correct.
Went on Google today to see if there was something I needed to do, and the tips were to move the steering wheel, or.. press the gas pedal, or.. move the tilt of the wheel. I tried all of these repeatedly and the car would not start.
-Battery is at 12.1 volts (I think 12.4 is normal? So could be low voltage?)
-Turning key to the ignition position will turn on all electrical systems (Dash, A/C, Radio)
-Something to do with the key or clutch pedal sensor?
Right as I'm about to escape the heat again from many attempts in the office parking lot.. It starts.
Thanks for any help! -Mike
