When key on and engine off, does the security light flash constantly? if so its shutting down the fuel pump, it starts momentarily due to the computer priming the engine with fuel. how to reset, turn key to run position, leave it on touch nothing, takes 10-12 minutes, start watching light around 10 minutes. it will stop flashing... turn key off, then back on and start this will reset the security system. they are sensitive on this platform car it will happen again. good luck!

Why won't my engine crank?


Does the battery have 12+ volts? Can you check the starter wire for system voltage while someone tries to crank? (With no help, extend wires so you can see your multimeter from the drivers seat) If those things check out fine, it's time to suspect the starter. If the battery is dead, it's "possible" the alternator has gone out. If you get it charged up good and started. You can watch battery voltage for a bit and make sure it's showing higher than it was when you got it to start. This indicates the alternator is charging. I would start there and see what your results are.

Motor dies while running


sounds to me that you may have a plugged catalytic converter. try disconnecting the converter and running the engine, also you can check for restricted exhaust coming out tail pipe.

Newly rebuilt motor turns over but won't start


Check the timing. When you shoot a timing light at the crank, the mark should stay basically in one spot. If it jumps around, it's slipped a cog.
Has this engine been running, or are you just getting it going for the first time, or did it die on you or what?

Battery light on, takes forever to start then dies once started


if you can get the car started again and with someone helping you have them take the positive side of the battery cable off while it is running and if it dies then it is the alternator also check your drive belt and when was the last time it was changed because it could be slipping
