Will start and run for about five seconds then shuts off, but then will start up the same way and run.

Can this be a fuse issue or something else, a few fuses have been stolen.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

I would start by replacing the fuses. can I ask if the security light is flashing when you try to start the engine? if so here is a guide to help reset the system:

It was the air filter being loose, but I will be getting the fuses replaced on Monday.
