Starting problem

Asked by Dec 03, 2015 at 01:46 PM about the 2015 Ford Mustang GT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a intermittent starting problem with my  2015 Mustang GT.     I
depress brake pedal and push start button which is how you start this car.  I
get a loud sounding switch noise from underneath the hood and car will not
start.   I repeat this procedure, sometimes many times until car starts.  
Dealer is of no help.   They say they can't duplicate the problem so as far
as they are concerned there is no problem.

Sounds like it may be a bad starter. I would rap on the starter with a heavy metal object like a hammer and at the same time have someone else try starting car. If it starts then you have a bad starter.

Keep hammer away from the starter and go back to the dealer or try another dealership. Also maybe take a video of the issue from under the hood while someone is trying to start the car. Take the video and the car to the dealer. If they are not helpful talk to the service manager and if necessary the general manager. Another thing you could do is to closely inspect the electrical connections at the starter. Connection could be loose.

Keep in mind that intermittent electrical issues are often difficult to diagnose and may be just as frustrating for your dealership service department as they are for you.

was there a resolution to the staring problem?? Have the same thing with my 2016 eco. the dealer replaced the starter, but did not fix. why they did not do a bench check of the starter is beyond me. Mechanics are trained and not educated. they follow a procedure and then call the factory. car now at dealer for week and a half.
