    Hello bigasspawnshop.com,

    I’m sorry that you’re experiencing this issue with your STS. It looks like you are seeking some feedback from the forum, but if you decide you may want to head to the dealership, feel free to send me a PM.

    Enjoy your weekend,

    Austin J.

    While I agree, his issue is probably not 'STS-V' specific.

    He came here trying to get help with an issue, give the guy a break. A mod will move the thread if they feel it's necessary.

    bigasspawnshop, I'd look at the obvious first- fuel pump fuse. Hopefully other helpful members will chime in also.

    Re: 2008 STS-V will not start

    bigg, You had an earlier post (May) asking for information on installing a "tuning chip". Did you do that ??? - If so, there's a possibility that fooling with the PCM could cause a no-start condition. Just sayin' .............

    Is the STS and -V series as susceptible to entering TheftLock after messing with the stereo head unit as the earlier models were ?? Another guess ......
