I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

Possible causes are computer, wiring harness issue, or ignition failure sensor.

I need to know if the check engine light is on, and if so, has it been scanned for fault codes and what are they

I also need the last 8 of the vin to pull the schematics
