A Jeep Grand Cherokee that starts and dies might have a problem with the choke. Depending on how new the vehicle is, there might be a sensor for the choke that is not working properly.

If your 1990 Grand Plymouth Voyager cuts out and dies for not reason, but starts after a couple times of cranking, the starter might be going out. You can have the starter tested.

Computer chip is in key. It must not be programmed correctly.

If your 2004 Silverado starts and runs for 5 to 8 seconds and then dies, you might have a bad fuel pump or clogged injectors. You could also have an issue with the distributor.

If you are saying the engine starts and runs for 15 seconds and dies and then starts again for another 15 seconds and dies . . . the distributor seems to be doing its job. You might want to check if there is a fuel restriction somewhere (filter or pump).

i have a 1988 Ford Bronco XLT 5.0 4x4. The truck will start and idle for about 15 to 30 seconds then acts like it has no fuel and dies.

if it starts and runs for just a few seconds then dies it is generally a carburetor issue. clean or replace the carb and that should solve your issue.

Sounds like it has to do with the micro-chip in the key. Starts for about 3 seconds and dies. In 1999 Ford installed a micro-chip in the ignition key for Anti-theft purposes. If the chip isn't there, or is malfunctioning, the vehicle starts briefly and dies.
