hi im alex, sounds strange, any other issue with power, i would look at the ignition switch connector, those like to melt all the time on this modle

Expert:  Alex Olsen replied 11 months ago.

does it blow when hitting a bump driving or will it blow on its own just sitting still?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I checked the ignition switch it had a slightly melted connector, I replaced it, it does'nt seem to be related to any bump

ok do you have a relay breakout harness? if so you could see what is missing when it does not start and you have to remove and reinstall the relay, the 213 code is for remote throttle out of range low so that probably has nothing to do with this

i would still like to help with this if you need it just let me know
