95 SC. Drove to work this morning. Ready to go home, now she will start, run for 1 or 2 seconds and dies. I hear fuel pump running on start. Any ideas, or things to check. I hate leaving it at work.

My dads supercharged Park Ave has been having the same trouble, changing the MAF sensor has helped us, you can find lots if info here...MAF Sensor A good read for you will also be these two threads..Fuel Pump O2 sensors as this problem may also have to do with fuel delivery problems.

The following is just a guess:

you need a set of those LEDs that alarm installers use for diagnosis, basically put one on the hot line to the ICM and the other in parallel to an injector as a NOID. When the car quits DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING but get out and look at it. If it is still on then your ignition is still on (ICM is hot) and it's probably the crank sensor or some such. If it is off you most likely have an intermittent or faulty ig switch.

hopefully some other folks will chime in on this.
