Hello, and thank you for writing in. This can happen when the battery is low, or has died recently. Although the fuses are good, make sure they are clean and have a solid connection. If these steps do not help, you may want to have your alternator, battery, and ignition tested. There may also be a programming issues that needs to be reset with manufacture software. Only diagnostic testing will tell. For more help, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
