Hi there, I am Cam. When you turn your key on, exactly what lights come on? Do the locks work? Lights work?

Ok, do you have a meter? What is the battery voltage when this happens?

Do you get a click from the engine?

I think you have either a bad battery or bad connection. I feel we are best to start by taking those out, having them tested and make sure they are rock solid. Otherwise it can cause bad or faulty diagnosis as we proceed.
