yes it's an alignment issue. inside the trunk near the catch is a black cover. remove that to adjust the catch up/down/left/right.

Re: 2004 SMG won't crank

your best bet is to have the codes read. sorry not much we can do at this point. one thing you can try is to wiggle the steering wheel/ignition while pressing on the brake.
