I know it sounds funny, but for the past 3 weeks, my 1996 cadillac fleetwood brougham won't start in the early mornings, usually when it is cold. The motor cranks strong as if the coil were disconnected. But get this, when I return around noon, or when the temperature has risen to high 70s or low 80s, the car starts right up and runs great. The check engine light does appear for a few minutes then shuts off. The car has done this a couple of times in the afternoon as well. I ran a computer diagnostic test, and i was told it was the "ignition control module". I replaced it, but i still wouldn't start ocassionally. I then changed the coil, but it still does it. The previous owner told me he had to have the complete distibutor overhauled, which I have the reciept for. Anyone ever had this problem or heard of this problem??? Please help.
