Seems like bad ignition switch. 2007 Saturn and 2009 pontiac had same issue. There was a recall for the ignition module. Not sure if yours was part of it.


Doe it have a after-market wiring harness or an after-market Ignition system (not ignition switch)? If so there is a power line in either or both that needs a backfeeding stop Diode in that line, you will need the after-market seller to identify this wire for placement or even a kit to include it.
