My car randomly won't start. I'll turn the key, the lights will work, the radio
works, but does not start. The battery, alternator and starter are all new.
Sometimes if I let the car sit for a few hours it will start. Then it will start fine
for a few days then won't start again. I've even had the Neutral safety switch
replaced. What other reason could make the car not start like this?

need more information.

when you say it won't start - what do you mean? What actually happens when you turn your key to the start position?

you said you have a new battery, alternator and starter. Why did you replace all these items?

AS you probably know it doesn't take much from the battery to turn on the lights and stuff. Nothing like when you try to start your engine. So, a good battery is important. It's number one. Number two is the starter. It has to take power from the battery and turn the engine over. Is you starter turning the engine over when you say it doesn't start? If the starter isn't cranking the engine over then we need to look at what is happening with your starting system. If the engine is turning over but won't start then we have to see if you have spark, fuel pressure and injector pulse.

I will need to know make, model, year and engine size to go from there...
