anyone experienced a failure to start? I turned on the ignition and the dash lights came on but the starter did not engage. I moved the shift lever to neutral and then to park and it did start. Ambient temp about 55 degrees

Do you still have the original 12 volt battery? If so it's probably done for.

I too would check the 12 volt battery. Although the battery pack in the rear is used to start the car, it cannot do so if the battery controller does not have enough power.

I would not think of the battery since the dash was there. I suppose that the Neutral switch of the transmission or the shift linkage is badly ajusted and the system is not letting the start because it is not well position.

I have had the problem a couple of times in over two years, but it has started the second attempt in whatever gear I was in. Never had it checked out.
