CTS 2005 Starting problems
I have a 2005 CTS 3.6 Litre engine with 6 speed Manual gear box.
Occasionally the Car will not start, despite the fact that all the elements connected with starting are new , from spark plugs to battery, to starter to all.
I also checked the Switch that exists below the Clutch pedal which completes the starting cycle, and lubricated it...
When the car refuses to start, I turn the ignition on, then I connect an external wire between the positive pole of the battery and the main wire situated in the Relay box in the engine compartment (It is a thick wire and it has a Lilac Colour).
The car starts and all becomes normal.
So once I jump start the car the way explained above, I have no problems with all subsequent attempts, until I leave the car un-driven for few days where I have to jump start it again.
I will be grateful if any one would advise me on this problem and what to do about it having faced a similar situation.
