check your anti-theft light. If the anti-theft system activates it will shut off your fuel injectors. If you can get it scanned you would be able to see if there are any passlock codes.

so, how long does that take to get to normal temp?

if you don't shut it off will it stay running? because you say that it starts when cold. reaches normal temp and then it won't start after you shut it off. So, if you didn't shut it off would it have stayed running?

If the condition is only no start when the engine is warm you should look at two things first. The temp sensor and the pressure regulator. either one could cause the engine to flood creating the no start problem on a warm engine. Also, if the engine is flooding you can do a simple task to see if you can over-ride that condition. When the engine won't start when it's warm, try putting the gas pedal to the floor while you crank the engine over. When you do that the engine sees the Wide open throttle on cranking and will shut off the fuel injectors. If the engine is flooding with gas, turning the injectors off will clear out the fuel while cranking and the engine may start. Just remember when the engine does start, don't keep your foot to the floor and over rev the engine. If that does start you engine, it will probably run very rough until it completely clears out all the extra fuel that was in the engine.

I'm not sure what happened there but I think I wrote a response and posted it at the same time you wrote another post.

so, on your second part about the key, Why did you replace the key and lock cylinder?

to reprogram the passlock to your new key-

first you should hook your battery up to a battery charger because it may take a half an hour with the key on to program.

1. turn the key to on with the engine off. then try to start the engine (only try to crank for a couple of seconds) after it cranks for a couple of seconds let the key go back to the run position.

do not turn the key off. watch the security light. after about 10 minutes the security light should go out.

2. after the light go off, turn the key off for 5 seconds or so, then do step 1. all over again.

It may take a totle of three times before the relearn is complete. that's why I said about 1/2 hour. Sometimes, it will take after the very first time but don't count on it.
if you do it for the three times and it still doesn't start you may have to look at the wiring from the lock cylinder to the passlock module. There may ba abad connection causing the problem.
