Q: Q: Starter Issue?

asked by on

Just had battery replaced and now inspected using machine at Advance. Report shows no issue with battery or starter or ignition. However, when turn key to position 2, I get full power, then when turn to start, nothing. Lights, etc all on, full battery but nothing. Have to try several times, then starts and runs perfect. Seems to be getting worse. Have read online that it could be transm sensor not reading it is in park or neutral, or could be fuse or fuse box? Also read horror stories about people replacing starters and batteries, etc that was not the problem after all. Thoughts?

My car has 96000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
