I have a 97 and the answere is that olds locks up the engine after several miss starts. put the key in then turn it to the on position and bump the key forward as if to start it but then release the key and leave it in position for 10 minutes. Now turn off the ignition for 10 seconds then turn it towards on but do not try to start it for 10 more minutes.
