Will it crank? Does your ignition key look like the picture? -Jim

I made a resistance loop for mine and just strapped it under the dash I can't remember how many ohm resistance it was but its real easy. There's a little wire in the steering column that get loose or cracked and that goes to the key. Put the loop in and took off

Oh or you can try cleaning the key and where it makes contact with an eraser or something. Maybe its dirty
