i have a 96 buick skylark 3.1 v6. it will start right up but dies
almost instantly. if i keep cranking after it dies for about 10 seconds
it will start but the speedometer wont work. after about a minute
all the lights on the dash light up and the gauges go to 0. then
everything returns to normal but the theft system light stays on. if i
shut the car off the process usually starts over. any ideas?
