93 Pontiac Lemans will start and then begin to die.

I will try to keep it running with the gas pedal, but it will soon die.

Why? Pray tell.

If the battery is bad and not holding a charge, every time you push on the brake's. The break lights come on and puts a load on the electrical system and if the voltage drops below 10.5 volts, the ECM will shut down fuel injector and ignition system. The other thing to is that the fuel pressure may be dropping due to the electric fuel pump not getting enough volts every time you put on the brakes. You cold always try keeping the jumper cables connected to make sure it's the voltage drop that is causing the engine to stall. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 1005 again soon.

I would first begin with a good tune up with new plugs wires cap, rotor, check coil. injector can be clog also, try to add bottle of fuel injectors cleaner and add 93 octane of gas fill it half way and run it til empty and see that will also help. If you have high miles like over 100k have timing check, its good idea to change timing belt every 75-10k miles, if it jump time due to worn belt, the car will not run properly.

93 Bonneville Won't Start


No,check for spark first. The security code comes off the key itself & never needs servicing. If no spark,there's a load of things to check,but start with the fuses, then engine codes. Should narrow it down a bit.
