Hi there, my wife just called from a trip and she's stuck at our grandpa's. She says she puts the key in the ignition, and it won't start, even though the lights, radio, etc. work. Any suggestions????

have you tried changing the starter?

We too have a 2007 Rondo LX 6Cyl - Occasionally will not turn over. If you keep at it long enough it eventually will. We have had a relay in the ignition replaced, starter replaced and it is still doing it. The dealership we went to is stumped (and not very helpful). Would like to know if you try anything that works.

we have a 2007 Rondo 4cyl - but similar problem starting. Thought it might be ignition switch in column, but maybe starter - though now we are reading your post... Usually it will start if it is cool and dry. Warm to hot motor, then usually it will not start. Wet it will not start. Have to wait a while and jiggle the car and pray or swear...(kidding) If you find out more please post. thanx

I have a 2009 Rondo V6 EX and it too does this on occasion. Starts quicker if I take the key out and try again. Dealership says that it may be a key issue, so they recoded the keys , but still happens. Has anyone gotten new keys?
