You did not mention the year/make /model of the vehicle but, your issue may be related to the tachometer setting or the immobilizer. One way to test is to remote start the vehicle with the key in or near the ignition and see if it still turns off after a minute. If the vehicles remains running with the key in or near the ignition, your issue is with the immobilizer bypass. If the vehicle continues to turn off after one minute, the issue may be with the tachometer setting. Here is a possible solution: remote start the vehicle with the remote. When the parking lights come on, turn the vehicle off WITH the remote. This is the virtual tach setting. Test this setting and see if the issue continues. If not, you may need to adjust the tachometer threshold jumper at the module. There are two jumpers at the module, side by side. The other is for parking lights. The jumpers are labeled on the bottom of the module. If the jumper is at the off position, move it to the on position. This setting helps with vehicles that use less than 12 volts in their ignition systems. This unit may have difficulty learning the tach in vehicles with these ignition systems.

It won't start it seems like its not getting fuel it cranks over fine everything looks fine and it just won't start

Have someone listen back by the fuel tank. Turn the key to the ON position. Does the person hear a humming noise by the fuel tank. You can try more than once. Wait 1 min. in between trys. If no 5 second hum then the fuel pump is out.

I have a 1997 Toyota Avalon. Sometimes just makes a clicking noise when trying to crank it. Sometimes it trys to turn over then stops and makes the clicking noise again. Usually starts if you keep trying....

Have the starter or solenoid checked. It's possible to get second hand parts from a Salvage/Breakers yard. If you don't mind getting dirty and can use basic hand tool. You may want to invest in a Repair Manual: It can be very useful for a DIY'er .

Vehicle ran dry on fuel I put a gallon of gas in it and cleaned sparkpulgs...turn the key and trys to crank over but doesnt...try it again and wont even turn over...NEEP HELP

First of all, maybe 1 gallon was not enough. You will need to add more fuel in the tank. Next, did you run the battery down, if so just charge it and try again. Might take a few minutes of intermittent cranking to pump the fuel up.

Wont start

Try this sequence. Pump up the fuel bulb until it gets hard. There should be something equvilent to a fast idle setting, then hold in the primer(electric choke) and finally turn the key and crank. When it tries to start go easy on the electric choke. You may want to see if the electric choke moves freely.
