his is a commin problem and it seems to be some thing between the key and the fuel pump when it is running there seems to not be a problem. what has been done in the past is put a toggle switch attached to the battery and the fuel pump there for it takes the key out of the system and also adds a aspect of security in people trying to take your car with out knowing about the switch.

I've noticed online seems a lot of people have this problem with this year ... Also the security light does go on once that starter fluid or gas is sprayed right in startes up just fine and runs ... so I wonder I definitely appreciate the advice and will keep update on what's going on will look into it thank you so much hard being a women trying to get to bottom of these problems no my basics just completely stuck on this
