    starting problems

    One of my Z8s is having intermittent starting problems. I think it relates to the ignition switch- sometimes it takes a number of on-off attempts until the starter button responds. Is this common? I've had one car for 19 years, the other for 16, but have never had this problem before (the problem car is the '03). Any advice?

    Should have mentioned that the instrument lights and gauges go on even when I can't start it, and there is no sound at all when I press the starter button. Is the starter button a more likely culprit than the ignition switch?

    Yes, it's very common, look in the problem section and you'll find a lot of discussion about it, with various solutions too.
