See if the security light stays on when you start it.
If it does, this is a SKIM module/Security Key problem.
You need to service that system.
You can have it serviced at the dealer and probably the skim needs replaced...
Or you can remove the skim on the bottom of the steering column and order a new ECM for the car having it programmed with your vin number.
Do not reinstall the skim. Just start the car and let it run till the security light goes out. if it does not, cover the lamp or remove it.
The car will run permanently without security keys.
You can use all the dummy walmart keys you can cut for it.
No more $200 dollar transponder keys :D

If I may suggest, you may want to check the ignition coil or check your fuel pump. the most likely cause is that you have a bad pump, and it stopped working....causing you to only use the fuel in the lines and then the engine shuts off due to lack of fuel supply. have someone get close to the gas tank and listen for the fuel pump to cut on. Beforehand, it may be wise to check the fueses and relays for the pump.

This sounds like the anti theft system is active, you jump start it but it dies out after a few seconds , if this is correct then try another key. the other thing can be a weak battery make sure the battery is fully charged and good,

Could be any of several things. If the crank sensor is marginal and not sending pulses, the fuel pump is shut off. This is for safety. The pump is energized for a few seconds as key is turned in preparation for starting then engine must rotate normally to keep the pump on. If it stops, in a few seconds the fuel is cut off.

Maintence light is blinkin when i start my car


Generally, the maintenance light should come on for a few seconds, then go off after the car has started. All of the dashboard warning lights do this so driver can tell they are operational. (Should see brake light, low oil pressure, airbag warning, etc. Any of the lowly "idiot" lights should come on.)

As a test, turn the key on, but not to start. All of the lights should flash on for a few seconds, sometimes in sequence, then go out. Now, sart the car, some lights may come on and back off. If none stay on after a few seconds of engine running, you are probably ok.

Car takes a few seconds to start & shuts off immediately


how old is your battery? because if it is weak the idle air control solenoid will not sit in the right location thus the vehicle will stall and wont stay running .replacing a weak battery will fix this problem .
