Yes I have no crank no start, I test the neutral safe switch it was bad and I replace a new one, so now I can turn the key to on no light on in dash board but when I turn key a little more the light will come in dash board and engine will start but I will have to hold key when I release the key the engine will stop running, to me it sound like the ignition switch is bad or out of adjustment.

Belwo the message box there is another small box with a "Attach an image (optional)" title.

Click the "Browse" and a menu for the location of the file you want to attach would pop up. Highlight the file you want and click "Open".

The small box would then be filed with the path of the file and you are good to go. The message must have something written in it to work and not all file types are applicable.

There should be some screws holding these panels and after removing them you can pull the panel off. Certain points would have clips and take care to avoid damaging them.

Sorry I culd not find any reference to these and you would have to try prying the panels and see if any place that does not seem to budge, that should be the anchor point and might have clips or screws there.
