Hello, my name is***** the check engine light come on when the key is turned to the run position? Does the engine crank?
It sounds like an issue with the ignition switch. It is a common failure on this vehicle. I would definitely make sure that the battery is fully charged first. If it is and the key also does not feel like it moves all of the way then it is more than likely the switch.
The main relay could have burned up because the ignition switch may not have been allowing it to turn off all of the way previously.
That is another sign of a bad switch. It sounds like it may have melted down internally./
No problem. If you need anything else please let me know.
