it is cranking but not starting. Acts as if about to start then cuts off.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Ok this problem is usually caused by the transmission rotory switch.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

It is located on the transmission and the harness runs to the back of the engine on top of the transmission.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

We can jump the white/red wire with the green wire on the 10 way black connector at the sensor harness connector.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Will that solve the problem or does anything have to be changed?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

We need to jump it out to see if the problem is resolved. If so then the rotory switch will need to be replaced.

Ok I will try that first thing in the morning and then get back to you by my midday which will be your morning. It is almost 2am out here.

What else can be done and l can't find any red/white wire on the 15 wire harness.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am still getting on the dash engine fault, stability control fail. I have jumped the wires as suggested still cranking but will not run
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

See if you have power with the ignition on at those wires when jumped.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Richard, I have tried everything you instructed but still the car won't run. I am at wits end. Any further suggestions?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Do we have power at both those wires with the ignition ON?
