Question about Cars & Trucks
When you try to start it the engine is rotated by the starter, or not?

SOURCE: long crank time before starts
Thoroughly clean interior of throttle body especially area where butterfly flap seats and all drillings, use aerosol carb cleaner, check air filter and spark plugs (platinum type only!). Then set idle with a consult unit or similar, engine management must be in service mode to set idle properly.
Also test coolant temp sensor it may be open circuit. If you don't know how to do this ask me.
Forget about earth if starter turns engine over at normal speed.

SOURCE: Starting problem
Try the idle air control valve it is located near the throttle body it has a four wire plug and has two small hoses attached to it this is a small stepper motor that controls the amount of air on start up this part will cost about $200 from a popular auto parts store.

Primary ignition fault. Reasons: Bad distributor cap (most likely) or ignition control module/ignition coil.
Hope that helps

Does the security light in the dash blink?
Thinking it's a pass code fault(ignition switch)
There is no chip in the key,the computer looks for the proper rotation of the switch,had the same thing happen,
Should be able to start it if you crank the engine for a few seconds,release the starter and DON"T turn the key off,wait 10 minutes,crank it again,should start.
If not do the procedure again(had to do it 3 times on mine)
This is the relearn procedure that also has to be run after the switch is replaced(with a new key also)

SOURCE: CRANKING BUT DELAYED STARTING
Check the camshaft position sensor. This can often cause a delayed start as the computer has to revert to the crank sensor for ignition and injector timing, which has to go through 2 complete engine revolutions to index properly, which can take 10-15 seconds.
