I start my vehicle and it will run three seconds and shut off but I went out Saturday and it started and ran until I shut it off now it is doing same thing start it and it shuts off after three seconds I have been told it was the key the chip in the key the ignition the computer, fuel pump security module. Can you help me I cannot afford to buy all these parts? No check engine light comes on so I can get a reading on my hand held computer but there is a light in the top right hand corner with a key in it and a line through it I have been working at it and it is not safety inspected yet so I cannot even take it to dealer unless I tow it there and back-would cost a fortune. Thank you.

It sounds like it is a security problem that is why the key is lighted on dash. have a mechanic scan for codes to see what the problem is. if you have another key not a new one try that if it solves it then you can get another key and program it to your car . if you have a manual. See our link for a reset.
