My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. Do you have a multimeter to do some electrical testing? Also, when you turn the key to start do you hear a buzzing type sound inside the car?

Thanks for that information and sorry for the delayed response. Please remove the steering column covers. With the 7 pin ignition switch connector PLUGGED up, hook one meter lead into the BLACK wire with WHITE stripe (Black/White), and the other meter lead to a good body ground. Try to start the engine while watching the meter voltage reading. If there isn't at least 9 volts while trying to start the ignition switch is faulty and needs to be replaced. If there is at least 9 volts let me know and we can continue with diagnosis.

You can go ahead and rate me positively. Don't worry, there won't be additional charges for asking questions after you rate so if you need more information just ask me. Thanks.
