I found the answer, and its an odd one, but it fixes the problem here it goes.
-detach the black negative cord from the battery for a moment or 2
-put the key in and turn it all the way
-reattach the black negative cord to the battery
-turn the car on without ever removing the key or turning it back before you turn it forward to start the car
that's it! Simple but weird I think =)
