GreetingsCustomer You will most likely need to have the SCL (Steering Column Lock) replaced...This is a common failure on these vehicles...Just be sure the ISM (Ignition Switch Module ) is good as you claim it is and that all your vehicle software updates have been performed...If I can be of further assistance please let me know...jeffrey590

You need to take it to the dealer in order to have it replaced...Its a backbreaker of a job; and you need the Tech2 scanner to manually lock and unlock it to perform and complete the operation...jeffrey590
