Hello, my name is***** need to start by checking the connections at the battery. If you have a loose battery cable or a bad ground connection at the body or frame then this will occur. If the connections are fine then this is almost always a bad electronic ignition switch. This is a common failure on this car and will cause this. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance please let me know.
