Any codes in the system? My guess is the crank sensor,but run a code check first.

it throws no codes has four wires at coil pac ground is good the pink or red that should have voltage with key in on pos has no fire then wait and will have voltage then start have replaced ign switch with ac delco will be driving about 30 min then dies no fire wait and starts back up have replaced pcm with used one and had flashed still doing same wondered if something getting hot and breaking down then cools and lets voltage carry until it gets hot will ck crank sensor ,but not sure why no fire at coilk pac with key on

You might also want to check the ECM relay, it might be clicking but not making contact, I believe it is number 5 in the power box.

I switched all relays around ,ran today for about hour and half died then no constant power to coils, waited about half hour and started with power back at coils,still wont throw a code just dies

I still think it is the crank sensor.

will the crank sensor cut off supply constant to the coil it has 4 wires the pink wire should have constant power to start,will crank sensor cut that power? soon as cools off it gets power and starts

Do you have a scan tool that can do "live data"?

I had this scan done today and died while they were doing it,have been told its a power block under the fuse box?

Im workin on the same problem and I beleve its the fuse box the powertrain relay gets hot and it wont start till it cools off .... the fuse box Gets hot losses the ground ... start it run it till it gets hot then turn it off if it dont start again swap the powertrain relay with the starter relay and it should start if it does check the wires going into the bottom of the fuse box at the powertrain module if there good replace the box
