Starting and then cutting out again within a few seconds is often an indication that the code that the engine ECU shares with the security system has become corrupted - on July 2003 on cars it is usually memory loss in the Pektron SCU, with may have been brought on by a flat car battery , or the car being jump started.

If it is the code that is lost or corrupted, the engine ECU and SCU can be re-matched using suitable diagnostic equipment.
