What is the Kessy button?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The Kessy button feels good both going in and coming out. All systems switch off after removing the key. But after a few seconds the dashboard lights switch back on by itself.

Ok there are 2 common issues to cause your issue you either have a issue with the steering column module located on the column or you have a fault ignition switch since you stated that your ignition feels ok and has no signs of a issue i recommend you have the trouble codes checked in the entire system and see if you have faults for the steering column lock module . I hope this helps . Please dont forget to provide positive feedback for the help provided thank you
