Intermittantly
starts and stalls after 2 seconds when fuel pump stops.
usually after sitting overnight, cold engine, the colder the ambient the more likely.
When this happens, Only the Check engine lamp illuminates, no other ipc warning lamps illum. If all IPC lamps illum for bulb checks, car will start and run.
-if after less that 3 tries koeo, if other ipc lamps illum car will start and run.
-if more than 3 attempts koeo for other ips lamps to illum, theft light will be flashing and I will have to wait 10 minutes for ipc theft to reset solid, then car will start and run for the day to several days.
