insert the key, feels like a dummy ignition switch with no resistance when moving from acc, start, like spinning free all the warning lights are on and the remote won't lock/unlock nor open the trunk. no difficulty in inserting key or removing I am sure it is a mechanical issue, not an electrical one, new battery 3 months ago
