Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
I am here Sundays through Thursdays from around 5 am to 2 pm Mountain time.If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.

This can be due to a fault with the electronic ignition switch itself.If the ignition switch has an internal electrical fault it will cause this issue here and would need to be replaced.

The first thing that needs to be done is to have a compatible scan tool or computer plugged into your vehicles data port to read all computers in your vehicle to see what codes are set.Once this is done any codes set then need to be diagnosed to then help to locate and repair this issue here.

If no codes are set then the electronic ignition switch will need to be tested to see if it needs to be replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
