1993 SL1
Default Won't start when parked on a grade

An odd one here, but if I get the engine fixed this one is a real pain. If I park my '93 SL1 on any grade no matter how slight, it seems to run down the battery or not want to start. If I shake front to back or get out and get back in I can sometimes get it to start. Unfortunately other times I need a jump to get it started. I have had Autozone test the battery and it is fine, rating around 540 (Best I can remember).

Does anyone have any ideas on this one, figure there is a switch in the tranny linkage somewhere.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Is your battery tightened down securely? Maybe the battery is moving and one of the terminals is a little loose and when it points uphill the battery break contact with the terminal? Make sure your battery hold down is there and tight, and all of your connections as well are clean and tight.
