Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.

I have been in this business since 1975. I am ASE certified and an auto instructor. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell,hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Please be patient!

I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating”in return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I can go another direction for you.

This sounds like a defective key/ignition switch. Not unusual if it's used a lot. Hope this helps you.

Thanks, Ron
