I just bought a 98 Mobius last fall. It runs great but it has a little quirk to it that is becoming annoying. Sometimes when I turn the ignition I get nothing at all. No sound, no click, nothing. Then I will turn the key off and try it again and it will start up just fine. It used to only happen occasionally and when it did happen you just turned the key to off and the next time it started fine. This past weekend at the lake it was happening more frequent and sometimes it would take 10 -15 tries before it would finally start. I have replaced the ignition switch on it twice (just to make sure my replacement wasn't a dud as well). I am thinking it has to be a wiring issue at the engine side. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since you changed the switch, I would recommend checking all of the connections. You may have a loose wire at the battery, the ground, or the starter. I would disconnect the battery while checking. While you probably won't get hurt, arcing a ground with a wrench will make you jump.

Took it into the shop yesterday. Ended up being the starter solenoid. Took it out last night and its as good as new again. Thanks for your help.
