    same problem, was told it was a flaw in the security, mechanic said to disconect the battery for two hours, and reconnect, turn it over, then try again in another two hours??? sound right??

It Sounds Like A Fuel Supply Problem. Which Means It Might Be Your Fuel Pump. Check Your Fuse's And Battery Connections Before You Start Getting Into Dropping The Tank And Replacing It.. I Had A 94 mercury That Would Run In The Winter But Would Shut Off While Im Driving Down The Road In The Summer. When It Would Shut Off I'd Listen To My Car. Turn The Key On For 4 Seconds And Off for 2 and Have Someone Listening To The Gas Tank. The Pump Should Make A Constant Tone. If The Tone Changes up and down or if you hear grinding. theres your problem. a basic electric fuel pump for a car should turn on for 3-5 seconds and shut off when you turn the key on. NOT STARTING IT.

Put a Fuel Gauge on the Fuel System, see what is happening if the Pressure is dropping below 40 PSI, there is your answer. If it stays, then you have an Electrical issue.
