Sound slike the main computer in the vehicle. Check the PCM and have it diagnosed.

Why does it die after 10 mins of driving and doesn't start for about 10 mins after that?


Two things I can think of. The coil is bad. They can do this from heat. They are good cold, but the heat opens a circuit and it dies. Next would be catalytic converter. It is clogged up. Check the converter first. Remove the pre O2 sensor. If it keeps going after ten minutes, This is your problem. If it dies check spark while still hot. No spark, coil. Just a note, you could still have converter problems.

My neighbor changed the steering wheel on a 2001 suburban and now security light is on. Now the truck starts then dies. I need a passlock diagram


Sounds like you need to do a 30 minute security relearn. Basically turn the key to the run position, do not start. Leave it in the run position for approximately 10 minutes. The flashing security light will go out. Turn the key off for 5 seconds. Turn it back to the run position for another 10 minutes. Again the light will stop flashing. Tune the key off and repeat one more time. When the light stops flashing turn the key of and then start the vehicle.

There are also plenty of references to this online as well. Good luck.

Have a 1991 bonneville le has to sit for a few hours before it will restart


You may need to check fuel pressure after the engine warms up and shuts off. Maybe the fuel pump gets hot and stops. Have you checked for spark after it dies?

1995 ford 4.9 stright 6 runs for a couple min then dies


The parts you replaced don't typically fail due to heat/cold cycles.You need to see if it might be the ignition coil.Make the coil easily accessable(take of the engine cover).Have a 12v test light and some sort of spark tester handy.Start the engine,let it run until it quits.See if you have spark at the coil.If not, unplug the low voltage connector on the coil,and put the test light across the connector,and crank the engine.The light should flash on and off.If it does,replace the ignition coil. If it doesn't flash,you may have a bad crank sensor,but this usually won't make it shut off,instead,it will cause it not to restart after heat soaking for a couple minutes.(I'm betting on the igniton coil).

My car will start up and run for a good 10 to 20 minutes but then just shut off. After I waiting about another 10 to 20 minutes it will start up again. My lights still stay on when it dies so I am not...


Sounds like you are losing fuel pressure or the ignition module is shutting down when it gets hot. Check for spark when the car is in the no start condition. If spark is ok then install a fuel pressure tester and let car run. When it dies the pressure should be less than 15 psi. You may need a mechanic for this. Best possibility is that you will need a new fuel pump or ignition module.

CAR WON'T STAY RUNNING


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!
