I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
the common possible causes of this on this vehicle would be:
loose or faulty battery cable
melting at the fuse box
ignition switch issue.
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.

Hi the thing is if it was battery or fuse box the clock and radio would have to be reset. The ignition switch the hazards would work. So still not much luck. Just used this site as must have log of problems and there would be a fix written down somewhere rather than guess work
