No I have not checked for fuel pressure or spark yet, the car will start after it's been sitting for a while. What light are you referring to as to anti theft?Wfat about the burnt elect smell I'm getting?This problem occurs intermittently and not when I have equip available to diagnose. An example is when I left a mcdonalds drive through and made a let turn into the turning lane, the car died on me and there I was stuck in the turning lane. After unlocking and locking using the key fob and opening and closing the trunk lid and doors, dancing a gig around the car and cussing profusely and almost running the battery down cranking over and just after I had called aaa to flatbed it home did it start. It got me down the freeway approximately 20 mikes then died while driving about 70 in the #3 lane and I got off the road. After about 10 mins of sitting and doing the aforementioned procedures, it started for me and I was able to get it home, approx another 40 miles. After I got home I shut it off and it restarted. Go figure--- I am frustrated as to where to start and it seems I will have to carry a plethora of tools with me if and when it happens again. My other half refuses to drive the car and I do not blame her. Thus the inquisition to you folks, hoping that this problem has occurred with someone else I'm the past and someone in your scope of brotherhood of mechanics can shed some light---I've been thinking that it is a security problem with the unit that reads the key fob, now I'm thinking that maybe an elect part nay be heating up and breaking down then when it cools, performs as should? Your thoughts?
