Title: Will not start in park (sometimes)
Post by: nkswinburne on August 18, 2012, 02:01:59 PM
Hi my galaxy mk2 2.8 auto has an intermittent problem. it will start fine first time but when I park up to pop in shops or get petrol I turn the key and nothing. Sometimes rocking the gear selector back and forth does the trick sometimes not and after a while will start . It seems to be doing it more often now' does anyone have an idea what it could be? its driving me nuts. Thanks guys   :)

It's probably the starter inhibitor switch on the selector.
Easy fix, it's a grub screw under the selector surround if my memory is working today
Small adjustments at a time
