CAR WON'T STAY CRANKED

1995 Cadillac Deville

I was just around the corner from my house when I turned onto a nearby street and my car stopped. I put the car in Park and cranked the car up again and when I placed it in Drive, it shut off again. It did this several times after attempting to crank the car up. I had gas in the car and even added more. After several attempts later, I got the car to crank again but it shut itself off again. You could hear the fuel pump working but no permanent cranking. What could be my problem?

Your ignition system is working properly if it has a snapping blue spark

Push off and warmer buttons on the a/c panel. When all segments light release. Write the codes down from the fuel center. Seeya soon
