Had problems with resistor on ignition key. Bought new key car ran well no problems. 6 mo's later car want start. My mechanic says, tried everything he knows can only start car for short time. Said he by-passed security and no help. I still think resistor or wires to ignition faulty.

Sometimes key shaving (metal dust) can build up in the column and affect the key being read. Does he have a scan tool to look to see if the VAT (vehicle anti-theft) is working?
