Hi, I hope someone can help or give some ideas for me. I drive a 90 Reatta hand-me-down from my sister. Needless to say she didn't take all that good care of the car, but it still runs. However, in the last two months I've been driving it, occasionally it will not start. I know it's not the battery or its connections, because the radio plays and I get dash lights. Basically what happens is when I turn the key to 'on', dash lights and radio turn on, but when I turn it further to 'run/start', it goes dead. My dad discovered that if I wiggle the key in the ignition or adjust the wheel up or down, it will usually start after a few attempts. However, just recently it didn't start after about 10 minutes of wiggling and adjusting. I'm assuming this is some kind of electric problem, maybe grounding in the ignition. Does anyone have suggestions on how to fix or if they've had problems like this? Thanks in advance, Jennifer
