Name is Greg, My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

Did you check for malfunction codes .

You will need a code reader or have the codes checked at a local garage then post them here for me to check for you .

This issue i have seen before and was the problem with the ECU , this is a plug in and play system if you have the chance to try one then this could make it easier for you and cheaper if this is the problem .unless you know someone with a code reader .

Also a known problem is the electrical part of the ignition behind the key barrel .

Have this checked and replaced if needed.

Please get back to me if you have already tried these option to what may be your problem.

Use the reply box below to get back to me .

Kindest regards Greg
