Are you sure that it is not related to your fuel system? If so then it would be related to your ignition system. Things to check are plugs, wires, cap, rotor, coil, ignition module, TP and IAC sensor.

Car wont start after leaving key in ignition,ie went to start car, but phone rang, key in ignition, now wont start.this has happened my wife on several occasions. starts fine on a push


Check the fuse box for the starter relay, and pull out to check pins for corrosion / bad contact. The fact it start on a bump with the key on leads me to suspect the start / crank position of the electrics. Get a knowledgeable person to run through the crank circuit with a meter, also check the condition of earth straps and starter cables. Could be the ignition switch is faulty?

We have a 2000 Saturn SL1 we started it yesterday and it died went to start it again and it wouldn't start it he security light came on the file gage won't move but it has a full tank of gas


Many times the lock cylinder fails to detect the key and so it shuts the car off. Other times the master relay goes bad which happens on older Hondas and it can cause the same problem. I would locate the master relay, tap it with a wrench and see if it starts. If so its the relay and relatively cheap to replace. If its the lock cylider then its much more costly. If the key liggt blinks normal when you start the car but then it dies out randomly or wont start, then its the lock cylinder failing to read the security key. Also remove any thing attached to the key that may be heavy.

I ave a 994 pontiac, bonnieville. about a week


there is probably a dead spot in the fuel pump,and when it is hot and you shut off the car it will not run.Next time the car does not start,bang on the gas tank with a piece of wood or spray some starter fuel in the throttle body. if it starts,it is a fuel problem.
use a spark tester to see if there is spark as well.ignition modules and coil packs are common on those cars,as well as the EGR valve getting stuck.that will cause the car to idle ok but die out as soon as 2500 rpm is reached.

You can check for spark if there is none then check for power to the coil if that checks out the replace ignition module .
