Hello, my name is***** you for the question. From what you are explaining it sounds like the electronic ignition switch it failing. This is a common failure on this vehicle. When it does it almost acts like the ignition is turned off. There are some other issues that can cause this, but this is the most common. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance please let me know.
