SOURCE: lexus es300 won't start

I had a similar experience just the other day, i stopped to get gas and turned the car off and when attempting to turn the car back on nothing would happen. Well, let me rephrase the lights inside and out would work as well as the ac and the radio. My initial train of thought was maybe it was the battery so i went and purchased a new battery which was around $100, I installed the new battery and the car still wouldn't start. Does your car make a clicking noise when you turn the inginition key or is it just silent? If it is silent, you might want to check to see if your starter has burned out. Luckly a friend of a friend does his own mechanical work and was able to remove and replace the starter for me. After the starter was replaced the car started right up and ran perfectly. Not sure where u live but in my area a starter ranges in price from $100-200, but they also charge a core fee ranging from $45+, which can be reimbursed if you bring in your old starter to the store. I would suggest getting a starter with a lifetime warranty as well, but thats just a suggestion.

Hope this helps,

brelic

SOURCE: car starts run's 3 seconds shuts down

Your car is equipped with a system called PASSKEY standard on all GM cars and light trucks, try the following procedure to reset the system, the battery being dead will trigger the system.

PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.

SOURCE: Car turns over but won't stay running

It could be a few things there could be a leak in the fuel line causing the engine not to get fuel. It also could be a fuel filter that is very clogged. Try these first.

How do I reset the security system on a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora


If the security light is on you can try the 10 min. relearn procedure . Turn the key to run ( not start ) an leave the key on for ten min. If the light goes off in ten . min. turn the key off . Then start the vehicle . If the security light doesn't go off there is a hard fault an you will need to have it diagnosed by a repair shop that knows how .

1998 cadillac deville starting system disabled


This is the dreaded antitheft security system. This a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other.
The "disabled icon" illuminates when that signal gets broken, or not seen at all. When the communication breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. (like it thinks it's being hot wired) The car shuts down because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This is why the icon turns on and shuts down your vehicle. It will either turn off the starter, or the fuel injectors. The vehicle may run for 2-3 seconds before shutting down. This link explains it pretty well.

2003 GMC Yukon Denali will start fine but then dies with in 3 seconds


This is the antitheft system shutting off the injectors , The ignition reads the key, and if it misinterprets the signal from the key, it will say UNKNOWN driver and turn off the injectors. Basically the truck thinks it's being stolen so it shuts down. It's actually SUPER common on GM vehicles. Here is a link about it.
