Welcome to Just Answer My name is*****'m here to help you with your problem. We see two things cause this in these. The most common one is the Main relay above the brake pedal. The other is the Ignition switch. The best way to tell between the 2 is when the main relay fails the car cranks over and dosen't even try to start, And it will do this when the car has been sitting in the sun sometimes as well. when the ignition switch fails it will try to start but stalls as soon as you let the key go. Let me know if you experience either and we can go from there.
