Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response. This issue on these vehicles is normally caused by a failing ignition switch which is how the starter gets its signal to spin over, the ecu rarely causes this issue.
Thanks for that. Ignition switch could be a possibility, as I have experienced it "sticking" in the past and not returning to pos.2 after starting!
Is changing the switch something I could attempt, as currently the vehicle is at my house in France and not easily accessible to a dealership. I would need to obtain the part through the internet, if I can find the right part to buy.
I would appreciate your comments and/or advice
The problem turned out to be the simple replacement of a fuse in the solenoid circuit. The fuse replaced was a 15A fuse in the corner of the engine compartment fuse box!
