lets start by cutting our problem in 1/2
when it will NOT start while your fingers are on the relay called CRANK in the under hood fuse box while someone holds the key to crank do you feel that relay click with your fingers when it will not start ?
also have someone hold the key to crank position if you wiggle the relay when the key is held to crank will it crank over or tapping the under hood fuse will it crank ?
did you feel the relay click with your fingers ?
yes the relay called crank in the underhood fuse box
see if you feel it click when trying to crank it over
ok lets see if another expert has seen this before
hang on another expert will replay back to you
do you feel it click with your fingers while someone holds the key to crank ?
if so see at the starter is the purple wire shows 12 volts at it when the key is held to crank position
yes under the front of the engine you can access it
see if the purple shows 12 volts at it when holding the key to crank
how are you making out ?
if you do feel the relay click and NO volts at the purple wire make sure the wires under the fuse box look good and if they do replace the relay and before you put in the new one with something small like a dentist pick tweak over the female terminals in the box so the centers of them are just about closed off so you know hen you put in the new relay all the terminals will make a good connection and then see if it will act up again
the anti theft if activated will only stop the fuel injectors and the engine should still physically crank over
it could be
you need to feel if that relay clicks if it does not they need to connect a scan tool and see if the computer is seeing the vehicle in park and if it is monitor the BCM data and see if the BCM is getting a crank request from the ignition switch when the key is held to crank
