SOURCE: Code P1632
These cars had a tendency to "lose" the password for the theft deterrent system. Your body control module doesnt understand your key, therefore tells your pcm to discountinue fuel supply. To reprogram the system, start the engine and let it stall. Leave the key in the run position. The theft light should flash for 10 minutes. When the light stops flashing, Turn the ignition off for 10 seconds. Turn the ignition back to the run position. This procedure tells the BCM that on the next ignition cycle, to accept the new password. Now, it should start. If not, it may require the clearing of the code, and possibly the reprogramming of the PCM, which needs to be done with a dealer scan tool or equivilant.

Hello and thank you for choosing fixya.com. It sounds like this may be a factory alarm. If you have the owners manual, or if you can get one for that specific model, you should be able to look up the alarm system and find out how to (if possible) disable the alarm temporarily. My other suggestions are as follows: 1. Check your battery terminal connections: make sure they are clean and secure; also, if possible, put some terminal grease on them to prevent corrosion, rust and acid build up. Check the connection to your starter as well as your ground to the frame/chassi/block, whichever it's grounded to. Some vechiles have a smaller ground wire that runs from the main ground on the batter to the body, next to the radiator somewhere or possibly on the side firewall. Check that all connections are clean, and secure. You may just have a bad ground which is a common problem in automotive electrical issues. Thank you again for choosing fixya.com and I hope that this information helps you fix your alarm system.

I have seen crank sensors go and leave no codes, but, likely the fuel pump is going away...they get hot and seize, then cool down and work again. I would not replace either without proper testing only because parts are expensive and there are other heat sensitive components in there. (coil etc) Be aware that it will check out good if it is running right while tests are being done.

Testimonial: "It cranks when hot and has sit for a while, when it would not crank. If you now think it might be crank sensor, how do how do I get to it. "
Hello! Any major auto parts retailer can scan your computer and pull the details of the error code that's causing the check engine light to come on. My first guess would be that you have a crankshaft position sensor issue, but the details from the code reader will tell you for certain.
Thanks for using FixYa!
