All those bells and whistles. You would love the simplicity of the YJ! A key is a key and doesn't need to be programmed!
And did we mention square headlights........

mrbigjeep you can go to the dealer to get the spare key programmed. you will have to pay but i think the price will vary at each dealership. just bring some donuts to them

activelydying the jeep will turn over everytime, but just die out within a few seconds.

Mudweiser Sounds like a fuel pump personally. Check how much pressure is on the fuel rail. The lil needle valve on the rail should spew gas on you when you put the pin(like a valve stem on your tires). Does it continuously start then die or only fire occassionally? Can ya take the air hose off the intake and pour gas init to keep it running? Hard to trouble shoot without actually being there. But just some suggestions on where to start.
