Since you said that ,".....IT STARTS IF I JUMP IT", that indicates that your batteries are not providing enough energy to turn the engine over quickly enough to get it started. You could have the batteries checked and go from there. It is also possible that the cable are not making sufficient contact with the battery cables. First, disconnect battery cables and clean up the cable ends with some kind of over the counter acid neutralizer or make your own with sodium bicarbonate and water. Brush the terminals and cable with a wire battery brush and reconnect cables to battery terminals. Be sure to connect positive (red) terminals first and then the negatives (black) to minimize sparking. If the engine still does not start, then, I would just replace both batteries with two new INTERSTATE batteries. They are a little pricey, but they make high quality batteries. This should fix your problem and your car should start. If you still need help, please contact me at FixYa and I will be glad to assist.

Honestly you should send it into the dealer. I don't think guessing will help you. Typically it is a dirty connection into the steering column (behind the ignition key) But diagnostics need to be run and a look at the VSS system (through a good scan tool) is needed to confirm.

This is common. the locks due tend to freeze up and need either a greasing or replacement. I do suggest automatic locking hubs that you don't have to turn yourself. You can get the part almost anywhere
