Long time reader, first time poster. My vehicle will not crank. My wife and I are arguing and she is demanding it towed to the dealer. Here is what I know. 2 weeks ago i was driving it and the power windows and power locks stopped working, the dash/gauges also looked funny, but I can't quite remember how. I shut off and it wounldn't crank. A couple hours later I tried restarting it and it did. I took it home and replaced the ignition switch and had no problems for about a week.
Then, I was driving it and the passlock light came on (stayed on) and the dash looked funny, but I again can't recall the exact details. I drove home and couldn't start it (no crank) after turning it off. The next day the same issue with no crank. I again replaced the ignition switch and it started (once). I turned it off to try it again and it did not crank. Based on this I'm guessing the problem was not with the ignition switch all along, but I could have bought two (2) crappy parts. I do have a remote car starter that was installed 2.5 years ago with no problems since installed.
Things I've tried. I pulled starter relay 47 it operates as expected and even switched it with the adjacent identical relay. I'm getting power to and from fuse 34. Fuse 22 is hot at run and start. Fuse 17 is hot at start. The Park/Neutral Position Switch sends a signal from Fuse 22 to the relay 47 terminal in Hot and Start. Based on this I'm guessing it is the PCM. It might be the remote starter or I'm going through ignition switches like water. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance.
