Will it start with starting fluid? Maybe a fuel issue, I’m having a similar but not the same problem, if you figure it out I’m interested to know what the problem was


The fuel pump up kick in but it will not start in order for me to start it I have to disconnect the battery for 20 to 30 minutes reconnected and then it'll start it will run all day and then the following day If I do not disconnect the battery it will not start

In order to start the car I have to disconnect the battery for 10 to 20 minutes reconnect it and then it will start rest of the day someone said the crankshaft positioning sensor needed to be replaced would that alleviate the problem


Found that a fuse 20 amp under hood was blown, replaced it and cat starts every time without removing battery cable. Hope this solves this problem so far so good.
