Car starts up fine, but after driving for a bit, if I shut it off..
(to get gas for for exmaple or stopping by the liquer store)
then try to start it back up, nothing happens..and then I have to get a jump start from another vehicle for it to fire off.
89 pontiac firebird V8 351 vette engine, automatic
This has been happening for many years..
I've replaced, batteries, starters, ignition...
the only thing next I was going to try, is to rip out the cobra alarm system..
any thoughts or help?
