Since it is recent, you might try to go to Autozone and ask them to scan your vehicle. Sometimes a trouble code can still be in the computer. You did not say if you have diesel or gas. If gas it sounds like "vapor lock" or a bad coil. You might want to try another fuel cap because with the extra heat you could have pressurized the tank and lost the fuel draw. If you have two tanks, the next time it does this switch tanks and see if it helps.

Security System Failure After battery and fuel pump replaced


Reset the system, turn the key on then off then on and let it set for 10 minutes with the key on repeat and after 3 tries you will need the dealer to reset it or find out what is wrong. In the future whenever a battery is replaced alwayas have a back voltage source avail to keep the computers memories alive.

1997 GMC Sierra. drove in the garage last nite. came back out and truck would not start. Turn ignition switch, dash lights, headlights, radio come on. then as I finish turning the swithch all the way to...


The problem might be your Vats security system. This causes the car to either "not start" or "shut down" while running, or start for 5 seconds and then die. (depending on the system) If the security light flashes, i guarantee that this is what the problem is. 1st trick, (if not starting) turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start. I did this in my regal for more than a year. If its shuting down while running, im sorry i have no quick fix...

Cheap fix: Bypass the chip in your key. Temporary, but effective. Until the TDM (theft deterrent module) in the dash poops out, then you're kinda screwed. I was told that these types of key security systems have a 7-10 year life span. Sucks for us. This link explains the "Key Issue" pretty well.

Never worry again fix: Bypass the whole VATS/Passlock/passkey I or passkey II system entirely. Literally take it out, and throw it away. I just did this in my Regal. Took about an hour. Took longer to find the thing than it did to fix the problem. For a list of cars effected by this problem. See the NEWROCKIES link on the right side of their page......... They sell a unit for 200 bucks to totally bypass this system FOREVER. life time-money back and all that. Finally did this in my car. Well worth the 200 if you've looked into getting this replaced... Anywhere from 600-1000 bucks.
