Question about 1997 Pontiac Sunfire
I have a 97 sunfire, and was trying to start the thing when it was about minus 30 degrees celceus outside, the car was cranking but did not start. I went to try it the next day and the starter would not even crank, so I thought I fried my starter so I replaced it, and was still getting the same problem, the starter won't crank. I tested the starter with jumper cable and the engine started for 2 seconds then shut down. I don't know where or what a fuseable link is and can't find it. Also the Theft lock light is on solid, so I don't know if this is caused from it barely starting in the cold weather. How can I tell if this is the problem. How can I tell if it is my ignition switch or fuseable link, or ignition coil.
Any help would be great,
Has the starter recall be done to the car yet if so it should have relay added to syatem and starter wire cut inhave with purple wire run to small wire on starter.
