Hi .

If you can start the engine with a bump start ,but will not start with the key
then this points towards the ignition switch malfunction .

How to test this is the case .

When the car will not start with the e
key switch on the ignition then with a jump lead short the startermotor to start and if the engine starts test the the ignition switch and circuits .

Need further assistance then please get back to me with the reply box and not the poor or bad service button .

Rgds Greg.
