The problem just started about a month ago The ignition key will not turn over. Not sure if it's the ignition switch or shifter. I will take it in tomorrow. It happens intermittently, but very frustrating!!!
Sometimes the Ignition key won't turn all the way to off and kills the battery.
New starter, good alternator, new battery, and new relays for fuse box and the engine STILL won't turn over.
