My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting 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.
One common component I have seen act up/fail like this here in the past is the electronic ignition switch itself.if this switch has not been tested/checked this needs done.In some cases this can require a multi meter to test it as well as a scan tool to monitor the signals from it.
Thanks Pete
