Hey guys

where is the issue when turning the key only gives click at starter but after 10 or so tries the starter starts the car. I can always use my remote starter to start the car. so it is ignition switch. So is it in the column with the tumbler or is it at the base of the steering column?
69 gto
thanks guys and gals

Yeah, if you don't wanna fix it, you can just use a push-button start switch--race car style. Any way to get 12 volts to the solenoid will kick it in.

Clicking normally means low state of charge or bad battery. Stop by your favorite parts store and see if they can test your battery and charging system.

The weird part is he says he can use his remote starter without issue (unless he means the the under the hood temp push button mechanics use?)
