Hello, you go to start the vehicle and the engine cranks but the engine wont run? Or it wont crank over at all like a starter issue? You said the traction light is on when it runs?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
It wouldn't crank at all

Ok so you turn the key to on and no response from the starter. Is the red theft lamp flashing when you turn the key to on or does it stay on steady a few seconds and then go off? This model year should use a PATS antitheft ignition key.
