Cool 92 LS400 with 93K will not continue running

Car had been sitting for two weeks. It will start, idle strongly for about three seconds, and stops after another second. This pattern repeats itself when attempting to restart. Battery is charged and plenty of high test Chevron in the tank. No work has been done on the car for some time and was fine before my vacation.

A day before the above pattern, the starter would turn over, but car would not start at all. This pattern repeated itself. This prompted trying battery charging and gas buying.

On day one, I used the valet key in that I could not find my key with the button on it until the second day. A friend mentioned that this might have caused the problem, but seems unlikely.

just a thought this happened to me after i left my ls on my drive way oe a few weeks and the same thing happened to me and later learned that one of the wires had come loose from my main ecu computer and would cause the car to die.my mechanic is a very very good for electrical systems and this car has a rather complicated electrical system so just a word of advice make sure your mechanic knows what he's doin it will save you lots of time and $$$

just an idea good luck and i know how you feel
