So what your current symptoms? When you put the key in the ignition, what happens?

Best Answer

sometimes the main coil wire is rubbing against the hood or bracketry...and the spark gets grounded out...that is one explanation~...

It will turn over but only stay running for a second. Every 3 or 4 hours


I'd get a new battery...2002 is ancient~ clean new cables and perhaps this problem goes away...insufficient power can make things act not quite right...perhaps the full voltage and amperage will make it keep runnin' then~


Maybe ignition switch, have it checked out.


get a feeling that your thermo-time switch is faulty...test your apparently defective one~
