I have a 1996 Sho. Last night it ran fine, I went to start it this after noon, and it started, but died after about 5 seconds if not less. The car does not stay running long enough to know for sure but I beleive the factory theft light is rapidly blinking after the car starts. Also was wondering if a weak battery will cause this because the car has been jumped the past couple mornings, but is fine the rest of the day.

My dads 2001 cranks a lot and once it turns over it sounds like it will die and once you tap the gas, it does. We think it is the fuel pump wearing out. It only does this maybe once or twice a week and other times, it starts right up.

Hope this helps.

Turns out the car must of had a remote starter at some point. I traced to grey wires up the column and found a transponder. When I tied them together it started right up. It also means my keys are not programmed. Thanks to those who posted, I appreciate the help.
