Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

So the engine will not crank at all? Do all the lights on the cluster come on when the key is in the ON position? Is the red security LED On the shifter illuminated or blinking? Will the shifter release from park with the key ON and foot on the brake? If so will it start in neutral?
