Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If all of these occur at the same time and you have the key on or engine running and since it will not shift one of the more common faults can be the electronic ignition switch itself.I have had to replace this switch in the past before for issues similar to this here.You will need to test the voltage in and voltage out on this switch to see if this is the cause for sure.If you have a multi meter or test light I can try and locate the testing info for you just let me know.I have had to replace allot of these switches on the GM trucks and other models for this issue here.One or more contacts in the switch usually fail causing the electrical issues.

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
