Hello and welcome,
My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you today.
I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
This is almost always caused by a failed ignition switch so you should have yours replaced as a first step
If the problem persists then the other possible causes would be a failed control module in the car that is causing interference and taking other systems offline, or power boy another wiring/voltage issue
By far the likely cause is the ignition switch
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
