Hello, my name is***** is either going to be caused by a failed BCM or an ignition switch issue. If the switch fails it will not power up the BCM and this will occur. I would check the power at the BCM and if there is none there from the ignition then the switch needs to be replaced. If there is power there then the BCM is the most likely culprit. I hope this helps. If you need anything else please let me know.
