Without warning, the vehicle will not start. The battery is good, the lights and radio work as expected, the central locking works. But when the key is turned to start, the steering lock is released, but there is no reaction from the starter motor, nor from the dash lights or instruments. All fuses and links have been checked but no issues found.
