Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have a couple different issues going on. It will start and die with a security issue but it wouldn't run a full ten seconds. You may have an issue affecting the starter and another causing it to die.

When it dies does it do so abruptly like the key was turned off?

Have you checked for fault codes?

Maybe not a full 10 seconds but yes does shut off like key was turned off
Have not checked for codes

The security light does a bulb check at key on and stays off?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
no security light ever comes on even when you first turn key on

Can you check for fault codes, fuel pressure, spark and injector pulse?
