When you jump to another car you need to clip the negative cable to a metal ground. If you did not do this chances you had a back feed and blew your computer.

Replaced ignition module now it won't run at all


After changing the ignition module, you may have broken the communication between all the components in the anti theft security system. This is common on GM antitheft systems. Check out this link for how it works and solutions to security problems. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

96 half ton turns over won't start


I see you mentioned everything except the battery. Have battery load tested as a weak battery will crank vehicle but may not spin engine fast enough. Dirty connections or corroded cables/ends could cause same problems. Hope this helps.

My 1994 buick regal will die with no regularity. when I boost it and remove any of the jumper cables it will die. Mechanic says alternator, battery and starter are good and the crank sensor is bad--what...


Odds are very good if once you remove the jumper cables it dies that it is the alternator. Once running, the car runs directly off the alternator so if it's quitting, it's a sign the alternator isn't puttling out enough amperage.

My car sometimes wont start and when it does it cuts out and dies


Put a voltmeter on battery. It should say something like 12 volts. Start motor and see if you have about 14.5 volts while running. If not your charging system has failed.
