In addition to the switch issue, I’d take the battery out & take it to a auto parts store and have it “load” tested, it’ll tell you if there is a problem with the battery that simply checking the voltages will not, like a cracked or shorted plate. Most places like O’Reilly’s will do that for free as a service. Then you’ll know for sure if the battery’s good or not. May be more than one problem here.

Sounds like you've found the initial problem, the ignition switch. If a dealership is going to honor the recall, don't let them hoodoo you. The new switch is to be re-keyed to match your existing ignition key. Some dealers over the yrs were not doing that and folks ended up with 2 different keys- one for ignition, another for everything else.

After that, it sounds like you're into the cold crank/fast starter syndrome. Battery must be in top notch condition or hooked to a charger/jump starter (DO NOT HOOK TO ANOTHER RUNNING VEHICLE!!!). Try starting with the throttle held wide F'in open.
Russ,
Exactly. I took it over to Gboro dealer just a bit ago. I figured I had gotten into the fast start issue, and didn’t really try to resolve it. The stinky part is that it’ll take awhile for the dealer to get the ignition switch in. They did have the wiring harness to do the s4 recall which is good.
Thanks for the feedback everyone.

Yeah, waiting on parts. Bleh. Hopefully it'll be all good when it comes back.
