    Sounds like the ignition switch is bad.

    You can easily find a diagram that shows you how to test and replace the ignition switch, there may be a loose connection also but most likely you switch is bad.

    1. Test the ignition switch by locating the Brown connector, in the driver's fuse box, just above the fuses. Locate the Black/Yellow (BLK/YEL) wire in the Brown connector. That wire should have battery voltage in the start and run position.

    2. If the BLK/YEL wire does not have battery voltage in the run position, jump the White (WHT) in the Brown connector to the BLK/YEL wire, and if the vehicle keeps running, the ignition switch has failed.
