Hello and welcome to just answer. If you jump the terminal at the starter solenoid will it crank and if the key is on, will it crank and run?
Hmmm, so it will crank if you jump it, actually start, but dies within a few seconds correct?
When you turn on the key to the run position, do you see the red security light come on for a few seconds and then go off?
Ok, sounds like you may have a PCM issue. It should start when you jump the solenoid with the key is on. Do you have a scan tool or code reader available?
Hello? are you still here?
Yes it should.
If you can get a scan tool connected, check and see if it will communicate with the PCM. If not, and you are sure that there are no blown fuses, then replace the PCM
Oh, ok, then if that is the case, you may have a failed TIPM (electronic under hood fuse box). The TIPM supplies power to many of the vehicle's electrical systems including the starter. What bothers me though is why won't it start when you jump the starter with the key on. That makes me think that the PCM is the problem.
At this point, it would be nice to have a scan tool that can communicate with the TIPM. Of course the dealer has one, but some high end Snap On scanners will also.
That is normal. The ignition switch does not control the power directly for all circuits. It tells the TIPM to send the power out to the control modules as needed.
The TIPM is the under hood fuse box, and contains electronic circuits to supply power to various electrical systems.
Ok, I will look for you tomorrow.
