Maybe there should be a fault code but there is NOT one. The first fault that flashes up is "Ignition lock faulty" and the second one is" warning brake propositioning"

Since I cant start the car and take it anywhere there is NO diagnostic scan and no diagnostic scan has been done. Im only relaying the info that comes up on the automobile screen

There is a fuse #41 (igntion lock ) in the side fuse panel , i have sent you location and label for fuse , can we check this good and not blown

Thank you

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 7 months ago.

if the fuse is good

then you might have a bad igntion switch or wirin , really several issues it could be , it will require a diagnostic scanner to retrieve fault codes to be accurate on what is needed

but a bad fuse you can change yourself, if that is the case here .

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 7 months ago.

we can a try to disconnect the battery for 10 min and see if that will reset it

But we will loose the radio code after we connect battery again , is the radio code available in the owner manuals

Thanks

how about if you have a test light , just check them all, and not worry which fuse go to what , be easier , if you found a blown one , please replace it
