Starts and dies within seconds...
by: Mike SWE

I have the same issue.
My 2005 Vette starts perfectry but dies after just a few seconds.
I have replaced the battery with a brand new Red Top Optima. New spark plugs and cables.
Reduced Engine Power comes up and car refuses to start up again. Now the car needs a few minutes and then it restarts again just to dies within a few seconds.
Could it be a lambda failure or the ECM that have given up?
