My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

This can be due to an internal electrical fault with the electronic ignition switch itself in some cases.I have seen this switch fail before in the past needing replaced to correct this fault here.I have also seen where the after market remote start can fail internally causing this and had to remove it completely from the vehicle and wire the vehicle back to factory to correct this here.If this has not been done I would start with this and see if this corrects the fault and if it does not then the electronic ignition switch needs tested to see if it needs replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
