does it die fast...electrial or gas....? did you change the fuel filter? do you have 50lbs fuel pressure...find out before going into crank/cam/sensors....

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

it dies after about 2 seconds, my bulb was blown for the security light when i go and crank the engine and it begins to die the security light begins to flash and once the engine has shut down the security light shuts off, im thinking its the passlock malfunctioning but from what ive read the security light stays on or continues to flash

its like once the engine starts there is a malfunction with the passlock and it cuts fuel to the injectors oh and btw my key is hard to turn i have to jiggle it up and down to finally get the ignition tumbler to turn would this be causing some sort of issue with the passlock?
