06 Reno Won't Start After Sitting Overnight / no crank
I just bought a 2006 Suzuki Reno with 130k on it, and I'm having a few issues.
It won't start after sitting for 6-8 hours. Dash lights come on, locks work, windows work, won't crank. If I sit and try it quite a few times(I'm talking 50-100 turns) it will eventually start right up. I don't hear any clicking while trying to start.
It has a brand new battery. I replaced both 30A fuses noted IGN 1 and IGN 2 in the engine fuse box. I checked, cleaned and tightened the battery terminal connections.
When I first got it a few weeks ago it seemed like spraying WD40 into the ignition would help it out to get started. This no longer seems to help and honestly not sure it ever actually helped.
The second issue is regarding the shifter. It will not shift out of park without using the override switch. I've checked the brake switch/lights which I saw suggested online, which works fine. I'm guessing I need a new Shifter Interlock Solenoid, has anyone changed this or have any insight on its location?
The third issue, is the radio. It does not work, I noticed last night that half of the lights do come on on the right hand side but it does not work and won't power on. I'm chalking this up to a bad stereo or it was fried when the previous owner took the battery out and I had to bring the new one.
Any advice is much appreciated, thank you!
