When I insert the key and turn it to the engine start position, nothing happens. No check engine lights, abs, brake, seat belt, or security lights. Jiggle the key a bit and the lights show and the starter turns over, but upon releasing of the key the engine dies. I have already replaced the key lock cylinder with new security key, with the same results. Would really like to know what the problem is.
