Hello, start by checking fuse " IGN E" in the underhood fuse box. IF the fuse is good check for power from it with the key in the on and start position on the pink wire at the transmission range switch and it should also have power coming out on the dark green wire.
LEt me know what you find and we can work further if needed.
It's mountedo n the dirver's side of the transmission about midway. I'll post a picture below for you.
Sorry about the typo, Driver side middle of transmission
Thanks, ***** ***** that feeds the pink wire "IGN E" should only be hot in run or start. THere 2 possibile reasons it has the 5 volts with key off.
1. Bad ignition switch
2. internal short in the fuse box shunting power to that fuse
You can see which it is by unplugging the ignition switch and checking the voltage again on the pink wire. You can unhook the ignition switch by dropping the lower dash cover. Once it's down lok to the left of the column and you'll see a wide connector with an 8mm bolt in the middle. Unscrew the bolt and bull the connector apart.
