This happens once in a while, once a month or so. I will turn the key and nothing happens. Everything turns on except the engine. Usually I turn the key to off, then try again and it starts. Sometimes when it starts the car will lurch, like the car is in gear and you take your foot off the clutch. Sometimes, like tonight, it sounds like the starter is laboring, like low battery power. After stopping for gas, the IMA started the car with no problem. The IMA is usually just about fully charged. Any ideas what the problem could be :?: I have regular maintenance scheduled Wednesday(98,000 miles), so I will be asking Honda about it also.
