I understand the keycard reader reads the chip inside the card OK but the reader also contains a micro-switch which if not working correctly will prevent engine start.
On the other hand it could be a poor connection to the starter solenoid.
if i put the card into the reader and push start the car it starts , if the card reader was not responding it would not start at all ? no
when i put the key card in the slot the engine preheats really to press start but engine does not turn over .
sometimes the car will start 5 or 6 times and then it wont . if i bridge a wire to the solenoid and touch it to the battery the starter starts all the time any idea's
