Q: Q: starting issue

asked by on

Q: a couple of times (twice over a two week period) I've had difficulty starting my car. the ready light would not go on when I turn the key all the electrical opens but the car won't start. this, again, has only happened twice. today I had the same problem. i thought it might be the starter. but i was able to start the car using my remote starter instead of the key. could the problem be with the key?

My car has 7000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
