I have a 2006 PT Cruiser, from time to time the key will not start the vehicle. I have to turn the key to on and jump the starter with a screw driver it starts right up. This is an intermittent problem, sometimes the key works and sometimes it doesn't
I have checked fuses to no avail. Could something be loose in the steering column? Bad wire? This is driving me crazy. Help!

Have you checked the neutral safety switch input to the PCM? If you have access to a scan tool with data stream, the NSS is on the data list of inputs and outputs. No NSS input = no start... Manual trans relies on clutch switch input..

There isn't a separate neutral safety switch by 2006, I don't believe. That should all be handled via the TRS (Transmission Range Sensor).
