Problem starting

Hi everyone, any help would be greatly appreciated. I have an 05' skl55 amg. The issue is that twice now when I turn the key to start it turns over but won't fire. To resolve the problem I cycle through to neutral and drive then put it in park and it fires up. No idea what this could be. Ant ideas? Thank you all.

Is going through your cycle the fix or is just waiting with the ignition “on” and starting the car again also working?

Crank position sensor on the way out maybe? I had a similar problem. Can't imagine it's transmission shift related but I could be wrong

The best thing is to scan your car with DAS and see if you have any errors.

Supposed to be in P to start.
Maybe sensor need a clean.

You could chase parts on this.

As said, best to start with a proper scan, which should pinpoint.
