I had a similar problem intermittent NO START. No click, buzz or other noise. Everything worked but wouldn't start. Unfortunately it took two trips to the dealer to locate the problem. Next time it happens find the purple wire in the wire harness under the cover on top of the engine. A simple tester that connects to ground with an lighted "awl" type probe will tell you if there is power from the key to that point. If there is and you're not starting then the only other thing downline is the starter. Can't repair them only replace. Dealer will be about 900.00 P&L , If you're daring or have some help it's right on top DIY 400.00.

First, provided their are no visible coolant leaks and/or loss of coolant with no signs of leaks, I would thoroughly flush cooling system and replace coolant, then check and/or replace thermostat (you can place thermostat in boiling water to check for proper function), if you have tried these 2 steps and still are experiencing overheating you may need to replace your water pump which can be a tricky job if you're unfamiliar and try to do it yourself, however, I could walk you through it if necessary. Also visually check your radiator hoses for bulges, wear ,etc along with heater hoses etc. You may want to also check radiator fins to see if they are dirty/obstructed and clean if necessary. Let me know if I can assist you further and how it works out

4.6 Northstar V8. It is located on the rear of engine (driver side) in front. It is 1n the the waterpump housing cover. Remove airbox and intake tube and bottom radiator hose. 2 bolts(believe 10mm) on thermo housing. These systems are a lil finiky about air pockets....so fill slowly and let run at idle until operating temp and let cool and chk level.....fill as needed and repeat if needed.

It should have Turned off with the Insert of the Newly Programmed Key. If Not, It may need a Computer Reset. You Can try Pulling the ECM Fuse for 5 Min. to Reset the Computer. If this does not work, Try disconnecting the Battery and Reconnecting. Make sure that you have a RadioCode before Disconnecting the Battery Though. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

u can't just clip the wire however you can install a resistor that equals the value of the key into the anti-theft module to bypass it.
