2006 Ion random no start
I've read a lot about the passlock stuff and other things associated with it and I don't think that is my problem but I could be entirely wrong.
This is on my sister's car so much of my information is second hand and as a result limited.
The car will randomly have a no start condition where when turning the key to start, no dash lights come on, no sounds, no cranking occurs. The only electrical thing that will turn on is the headlights.
Through a combination of trial and error and dumb luck, we found that if we remove and simply replace the relay numbered 29 under the hood for the Powertrain the car will start every time afterwards. When I say replace I mean we are using the same relay and unplugging it and plugging it back in.
Prior to this, I tried just disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it, and the car had the same symptoms as before disconnecting.
This condition has only occurred ~10 times in the past year in all types of weather.
Any suggestions are much appreciated

Re: 2006 Ion random no start
sounds like one a loose connection to or inside the underhood fuse box. if you have an extra relay you can test the female terminal tightness inside the box. With the old or not needed relay brake off all except one terminal. Now you can test the tightness of all the ternimals that size in the box. If you find a lose female terminal, you can put a small bent in the male terminal for a tighter fit. It is also possible that the terminals in the connectors that are bolted to the bottom of the box can be loose. good luck, let us know if you find anything.
