Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

These are not normal symptoms of a stock vehicle. These fall more in line with a weak battery or a vehicle with an aftermarket alarm or immobilizer on the vehicle. Are any of these a possibility.
