This problem just started. Parked at store, 2 hours later will not start. Had a code P1345, cleard and not returned. Replaced fuel pump and filter. No help. Fuel pressure is 55-60. Good spark. Will start and run if fuel is poured into TB opening. While running this way if throttle is pressed engine will die as if out of fuel.

My friends suburban has intermittent complete power loss,when we get the power back on by playing with the wires by the battery, it then has an intermittent no start (will not even turn over). They have been having problems with the alarm system. My guess, for start; faulty alarm may be giving signal to keep vehicle from starting. I am not sure if it is type of alarm that disables vehicle. Or brain may be dieing. Not sure.

Our suburban is suffering a electrical issue. over the past three days it drives fine, and amp meter is reading good, then when we turn it off and go to re-start it, it wont turn over. I jump it and it starts right up. It starts on it's own about 2 times after it is shut off but, then it wont turn over again. We had the starter replaced about 2 month ago.
