It is the electrical part of your ignition switch!!!! Some of these were actually recalled but even some that were not still fail!! U need to replace only the electrical portion...check with your dealer if nobody else offers it!!! Not very expensive...GOOD LUCK!!!!

As a response to the main relay.....yes the car will start for 2-3 seconds and die but after that the car will just crank and crank and per your description the car starts everytime for 2 seconds and dies would not be a relay....most the time main relays are summertime issues not to say it cant happen in the winter though...if it does indeed start 2-3 seconds and die and continously cranks afterward then consider the relay...!

This is a classic symptom of a bad fuel pump relay. This part is also known as the "Main Relay". The fact that the Battery icon comes on indicates that the problem is not the ignition switch.
