2011 GT Random starting problem

My 2011 GT has a starting problem, sometimes. When I turn the key to start position sometimes it just keeps cranking the engine over but doesn't start. I have to turn the key to off and restart it. Its like it gets stuck in the start position and cranks but doesn't start. and i have to turn the key to off to stop it from cranking or it would just crank and not fire up. Any one ever have this happen?

Re: 2011 GT Random starting problem

Are you holding the key in the start position? I did that when I first got mine and had the same issue. Once you move it to the start position you let it go immediately and it will turn until it starts. I had the same issue but since i quit holding it in start have not seen the problem

I will release the key and it continues to crank like I would be holding the key in the start position.

I have had the same issue and actually was freaking out too. You guys are the first I have heard talking about it.
So if I follow correctly, just place the key in start and let go. If i keep twisting forward I am manually causing the problem?
