My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.

From what you have described here this doesn't sound like the starter or starter components at fault here but may be an internal electrical fault in the electronic ignition switch possibly.If the electronic ignition switch has failed it can fail to provide the correct signals on its circuits and can cause this here.

I would have the electronic ignition switch tested to see if it is found to be at fault.It may be other components like a possible battery cable or fuse box cable issue or others that may cause this but electronic ignition switches can be a common component to fail in some cases on several models and can cause this here.Make sure the battery cables are tight and clean at the battery and to where they run from the battery and connect on the engine and fuse boxes as well.

Thanks Pete
