(Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 1 year ago.
Hello, it sounds like you either have a failed key or a failed ignition switch, the best way to check is to use a second key . hopefully you have a second key, if not then the other option is to take your key apart and see if the coil at the top of the circuit board is still attached , they have a tendency to come loose if the key is dropped a few times. i am signing off for the night but i will be back on again in the morning.
