So I have a 2001 Mustang GT, whenever I go to start it, I have to hold the key until it actually starts. Now I think I just need a new starter but I want to see what you guys think.
Not sure what you are saying... hold the key on until it cranks over, or hold the key in the crank position and have the motor crank over and over until it finally starts. - like a motor out of fuel
Yeah until it cranks over, I have to hold the key and it usually takes about 2-4 seconds before it does start.
Usually what happens when you turn the key to the start position is a "starter request signal" is sent to the body control module (BCM). The BCM then completes the circuit for the starter and cranks the engine. Check the ignition switch and BCM. HTH. -Jim
I will try it, thanks!
You're welcome. Glad to help. Thank you for the best answer click. -Jim
