Well..... I found the problem, why or if it will do it again I can't say and neither can the dealer. After my diagnosis, I concluded it was possibly something computer related. I towed it to the dealer, It was thta the computer chips in the keys or the reader for the ingition switch lost its program. All keys had to be reprogrammed and all was well after 80 plus bucks. Wold have been cheaper, but they had to pull my remote starter box from under the dash to reprogram that key as well. They asked if the battery ahd been low or if I had used a non-programmed key as these were the usual causes for this problem.
No to all the above. Not a clue as to why or if it will happen again Anyway, when I told them what I had checked, They agreed to what the problem probably was. This must be a common prroblem, though I have never heard of it before.
