Hi, I have a vt 98 ecotec sedan. Has been never missed a beat ever. Went to start the car last night expecting it to start immediatley as usual but it just turns over and over,

The fuel pump is working as it buzzes for a few seconds from the rear after ignition is turned on. There has been no misfires, etc recently or history of it not starting before, just suddenly won't start.

Can anyone tell me if it sounds like the crank angle sensor?

Could be any number of reasons. Is the immobiliser turning off, no flashing light in the mode switch?

this happen to my friends car, what i did was i turned to key on and of for 3 seconds doing that 3 times. and then it would start for some reason. no idea why that work but it does, at-least for him any ways.

Also i don't think it would be the crank sensor, if it was it would start intermediately work on and off and rarely quits completely on GM vehicels.
