1998 espace wont start??

Hello,my 1998 espace 2.0 8valve has developed an intermittent fault.Sometimes when I turn the key in the ignition,the dash lights come on but then nothing,it doesnt even try to turn over.I can hear the fuel pump coming on,and when this happens the car will start with a bump.And then i can go to it and it fires up instantly
Any help on how to rectify this annoying problem woulb be greatly appreciated

Re: 1998 espace wont start??

When it won't start,you need to check and see if you have power to the starter solenoid trigger wire when you turn the key to crank the engine.
