check your battery.batteries can quit on you even after just driving it.take it to your local auto parts store to have them check it for you.I would also have your alternator checked out to.A bad alternator can run down a new batter in a very short time.Do those 2 things and I bet you will find your answer.GOOD LUCK!!!!


Sounds like a problem with the BCM (Body Control Module). When you turn the key for the ignition an "engine start request" signal is sent to the BCM. The BCM then completes the circuit to the starter and cranks the engine. HTH. -Jim

Sounds like the ignition switch,not the key switchThis switch is usually mounted on the steering column under the dash and is actuated by the key switchWhen it goes,no power to the starter and jumping will not keep it running because the ignition switch is stuck in the off position
