Hi folks.

My 1990 New Yorker will start, but the just die after a couple of seconds. I know that is supposed to have to due with the security system. I have locked and unlocked the driver's door with the key. I have unlocked the doors, opened and closed the hood and trunk. I even tore the dashboard apart and unhooked the security system. But, every so often (like today), the car will decide that I am trying to steal it. Normally it will start after I play the open and close and lock and unlock "game". Not today. does anyone know what else I can do to get the car to keep running? Thank-you. I am frustrated and desperate.

Hi Wolf.

I learned on here not to use the power door locks, so I haven't. It happens out of the blue.

No alarm as I have disconnected it from under the dashboard, I think it was above the radio.

The battery is new and I don't get a check engine light when the car is running.

The door lock on the passenger door does not work. the cylinder in broken.

How can I short out the key cylinder on the driver's door?

THANK YOU for your help.

Tom

I disconnected the alarm system last year with the engine running.

I was driving home today when a little light came on next to the odometer. So I turned the car off and tried to restart it. That is when it wouldn't start again.

The EVIC doesn't work properly. Temperature always show -75 and compass always shows South. Sometime the speedometer electronic quits working altogether. I have tried replacing the BCM (it doesn't get wet), but no difference.

What is the ECM and where is it located?

Thank you.

Tom
