Q: Q: Trouble starting

asked by on

Recently started doing this. I will go to push the start button and it does not start. It only goes to power on mode. If I wiggle the shifter and then go to push the button it does start. I have had the battery, starter and alternator checked and all are good.

My car has 54000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
