'03 Accent won't crank/start
Hello from Michigan and my 2003 Accent GL sedan. We seem to have an electrical problem that suddenly popped up without warning. I have been driving it trouble free for about 25k miles. (205500 miles or so on it)
I stopped yesterday at a friend's house for an hour or so, then when I tried to start the car, all of the indicator lights came on like normal, but the starter did not crank at all. There is no 'click' at all. I tried moving shifter to free up neutral safety switch, no change. I tested the 6 month old battery, it is in 'Optimal Performance' level. I tried to jump it, nothing. Headlights and all accessories work just find. Key turns smoothly and I did NOT have to turn wheel to get it to turn. (Though I have tried that with and without the brake trick several times, also to no avail.)
No engine light came on prior to the issue. I read the OBDII codes after no start situation came up.and they told me intermittent misfire in CYLS 1/4. I replaced plugs, though that would not fix my current issue..
I am unsure where to go next. May I please ask for some suggestions?
