Symptom indicates a faulty ignition switch.

IGNITION SWITCH

Turn ignition off. Disconnect 48-pin connector C202 located near base of steering column. Using DVOM, check for continuity between specified terminals with ignition switch in specified position. See
IGNITION SWITCH CONTINUITY TEST table. If continuity does not exist as indicated, repair wiring harness between ignition switch and connector C202 or replace ignition switch.

I disconnect a 42-pin connector but I am not sure I disconnect the right connector, I didn't see any number on the connector like D5, B2, C6, I don't know which terminals to check for CONTINUITY.
