So this has been an on going problem for 2 years. The key fob will unlock the doors lights will come on air will come on etc but car will not start. Key fob battery’s are brand new, car battery has been tested and is good, starter was replaced a year ago and is also good. Car has done this before and one day you jump in and it fires right up will run for months on end and then the same thing won’t start from anywhere too a few minutes to a week and then starts again . Also anytime it rains or I hand wash the car the alarm makes an annoying beeping noise for a while after it happens . This time I went through a car was and the car was running fine as soon as I turn it off now it’s been like 2 weeks without the car starting . Please help thank you!

if its smart key start then hold down the start button for like 30 sec. If it starts up without pressing any of the pedals, then it's likely the clutch or brake switch.

the switches are known to go bad.

The most likely culprit right here. I had to replace the brake switch twice. Luckily the dealership did it for free both times as this is a known issue. Good luck!

Yeah sounds like the brake switch. There was a TSB on these going bad so the dealer should do it for free. Next time it happens, find someone to look at the back of the car to see if the brake lights light up when the brake is depressed. If they don’t light up it’s definitely the brake switch. A broken brake switch is super dangerous because it means the brake lights don’t work when you’re braking. Obviously not ideal when hard stopping on the highway.
