Customer reply replied 6 years ago
It tries to start. Every once in awhile it starts and runs for about five or six seconds then dies. I'll try to start it again and it takes a little while but will start and run again for a few seconds.
Auto Mechanic: Tom, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 years ago
Ok most common are faulty engine harnesses or the electrical part of the ignition switch fails
