Ignition question (key)


Recommended Posts

Hey guys

I have a bit of an odd question to ask. Over the past couple of days I've noticed that the Z doesn't start like it used to. This is what I mean, from the day I bought the car when you turn the key over the second it hit "start" (or on which ever it is) the starter would rotate and the car would start. Over the past few days I've noticed a noticable pause, as in I turn the key to the "start" position and there's a noticable pause before the starter rotates? Any ideas on why? I have two new battery cables and a new starter (gear reduction).

Check the voltage at the solenoid and at the battery. If it's getting a little low at the solenoid, it might not engage. Also, the back of the ignition switch could be wearing. If that is the case, you can replace it without replacing the whole ignition switch.
