Re: Mystery Starting Problem
Given your description the one thing I would suspect is the "Engine-electronics" relay (motronics relay #7 in the picture). If that relay is getting flakey it would cause just that problem. It is activated by the key so it makes and breaks with a key turn and if the contacts are corroded or pitted then it may not provide the juice to the motronic. It is the motronic that, in turn, drives the fuel pump and the starter signal. That could explain the works/ doesn't work issue without touching anything but the key.
