I have a 2005 mdx and a few months back, when I went to start it, nothing would happen. No sound, but everything turns on, just doesn’t start. It has a new battery. It would do this randomly on the first try and then start like normal. Today now it did it again 3-4 times in a row, so took the key out, waited a few seconds and put key back in and started normal. Any ideas?

Sounds like a bad spot in the starter. What happens is each attempt bumps the starter just enough that after a couple of times it is back to a good spot, but any time it stops on the bad spot you have the problem. Eventually the bad spot gets big enough or bad enough that no amount of trying will get past it. Had the same thing recently where I got an intermittent no-start and a couple of tries later it would start. Finally one day nothing no matter how many times I tried. Tested the starter and it was bad, so I replaced it and haven't had an issue since.
