When turn key car does a Screech instead of starting

Recommended Posts

My 2012 sel 2.0L When I go to turn my key sometimes my car does a loud screeching sound instead of starting and usually when I jiggle my key or push on it it will start.   But sometimes it takes a few minutes.  Change the ignition switch still doing it.  Does anyone have any ideas what it could be

Noise typical of a failed starter.  That is what I would test and if it fails, replace.

It’s only once in a while and it’s been doing it for about 9 months I dont think it’s the starter.   It seems like a short in a connection
