I had this same problem & cause was an aftermarket security system that was disabled by previous owner but never removed & therefore backfed 14.5volts into ignition system over time & destroyed it.Fix is replace ignition control module,computer control module & ignition wiring harness,also I must add that reprogramming is also required for modules & both keys.Unless you know a GOOD GM mechanic who will do this on the side & get you the parts at his cost,this is a COSTLY fix at dealer $900-$1200,about 6-8hrs labor.

Anti theft security systems are known for shutting down engines in GMs. You may not know it, but your car is using one called VATS. Its that little black chip in your key. If you see a light on the dash that says "security" when you are having trouble, then this is your problem and this link will help you,

Hi, sounds like a fuel pump story. here is a quick test to know if your fuel pump has failed. If yoy can find some carburetor cleaner just find any vaccum hose direct on the intake manifold then umplug it and spray a resonable amount of clearner. reconnect and start engine. If it's a feul pump the car will start for few secs and die. if it doesnt start then we are in need of a spark. there's no spark at the plugs.

1996 buick skylark alarm system when ttry to start the car the car starts up then quits;the remote has been used to ulock the door lights on dash do not come on:but after afer afew times trying to start...

I have had the key cylinder changed twice on my 96 Buick Skylark Grand Sport and still having the same trouble. The car will start, it runs for about 3 seconds and shuts off with the theft system light on. I have reset the computer time and again and the car WILL run great for a day or two and then it gets back into the same routine. Is there a way to bypass the theft system? If so... PLEASE help me out before I take a hammer to it.
