now.

So does it crank? Click? nothing? Any lights on in the car?

Yes for 3-5 seconds and then dies. Lights yes then they go off then come back on. Did get it to finally start and run but took 7/8 tries

I had the same problem with mine. Started checking around and one of my cables that went to my computer was loose. I pushed it in and it started up first try and ran smooth again.
