My wife couldnt get her 2011 SE to start this morning. It engine turns over strong but it wouldnt start. Brake lights worked. Brake pedal very hard. Tried several times but would not start. Finally I jumped battery just in case and it cranked. Dont know if this was coincidence or not. Car is two years old and only 30k. I checked for interior lights being left on or other things that might drain the battery.

Could a low Fob battery cause this? Brake switch? No codes thrown. Taking in to dealer but wanted to rule out a simple fix.

OP

I have been here as well. You can try craigos' suggestions, but I would also make sure to have the dealer check your throttle body. That was what my issue was---carbon buildup. Apparently it will cause the engine not to fire even though it is cranking. SO you get a continuous crank but no start.

If you are under warranty, they MAY clean it as a courtesy. Otherwise its $169 before tax.
