Maybe ignition switch, Maybe worn out at giving power to coil. Let me know.


Make sure your inertia switch isn't popped. Back left behind the seat, behind the plastic under the speaker. Should be a round access hole. If it's flush with the top then popped, push down til click. If it's down then good. Could also be clutch switch (bypass to test ) or park switch for auto. Keep me posted and check out
