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.
In allot of cases this type of fault here can be caused by one or more circuit failures with the electronic ignition switch itself.If you have not had this switch tested to see if it is the cause here this needs done.I have had to replace the electronic ignition switch several times in the past before for issues like this here.
If this was tested and found o.k. let me know so we can continue.
Thanks Pete

wasn't tested but I get a start signal to the starter fuse when I turn the key
Expert:  peterpete190 replied 2 years ago.
Is the starter engaging to turn over the engine at all when this occurs here?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

also trans has only reverse and 3rd
Expert:  peterpete190 replied 2 years ago.
I apologize for the delay.
Can you test the start signals at the starter to see if you have one large power cable that has power at all times key on or off and one smaller wire/cable that only has power when the key is held in the crank/start position and let me know what signals you come up with here?
Let me know,thanks Pete.

no start signal to starter,signal at starter fuse,goes as far as IPDM and no further,has power at large terminal on starter,car will start if you jump starter but tranny in limp mode and gear shift indicator not working on dash
Expert:  peterpete190 replied 2 years ago.
I apologize for the delay as I was off line the last few days.
At your IPDM should be a starter relay.Is this relay felt to click or heard to click at all when trying to start the vehicle?This may take one person to try and start the car while you listen and feel the starter relay.
Let me know,thanks Pete
