As per Dennis's request for more info however the fuel pump relay sounds promising.

Example, FPR is priming but not contacting for running, engine will use up all primed fuel then cut out.

This sounds like you may have an ignition module failing. Run it and when it dies, have some one crank it while you check for spark. If no spark is found, replace the ignition module. This piece runs about $75. Not too bad relatively. Let me know what you find.

well it has passlock two and this is common with these cars. never seen the other issue to accompany it but if you do a relearn of the key and it starts then it could be two different issue's but if it don't work then they are related.

a relearn of the key is done with the ebrake up to keep the day time running lights off ( not an issue for you) but do it anyway. put key in the ignition and turn it to the on postion right before crank for 10 sec. turn it off for 10 sec. then turn it back on for 10 mins. repeat two more times back off for 10 sec. and then back on for 10 mins. it is cruishle you try to keep with in the times or very close. 10 seconds and 10 minuites three times and that will relearn the key and if it starts then you may have two issue's but hard to tell with out testing. but i think this is the best thing you can do for now.

i have a customer that can't afford the passlock module and labor so i taught her this and she is better then me now at it. lol... but like i said very common issue. let me know if you have any more question. good luck

When starting car, takes 8-10 sec to turn over.


Do you mean 8 to 10 seconds to START? Turn over means the engine is turning or cranking BUT starting is when the engine is actually running. I think you might have a fuel problem like your loosing your prime. Turn the key off wait 15 sec. then turn the key ON not cranking it repeat this (3x) if the car starts immediatedly your fuel pump is loosing its prime or the fuel pressure regulator is leaking.

Two things that may help you or them find the problem.

When it does this what is anti-theft light doing? Normal operation is when you turn key on it should come on for a couple of secs then turn off.If it starts flashing rapidly when key is in the on position then it does not see your key and will not start.

2nd thing is when it cranks but will not start does the check engine light come back on while cranking after about 10 secs? When you turn key to on position the check engine light should come on,as you start cranking the engine is should go out but as engine is cranking it should come back on while it is cranking within 10 secs. If it does not then the computer is not seeing the crankshaft position sensor and this is your concern. This will usually not set a trouble code either so it makes it hard to diagnosis unless it does it while they are checking it.

Fuel system


Car is not seeing rpm's. Sounds like a bad crank sensor. The rpms signal the pump to turn on while the vehicle is running.
