Default 2010 SRX Starts then dies

For a few days my 2010 had a miss on startup. Last night I went to leave work and the car started then just died with a groan Thats all it will do. It starts then immediately the engine dies. It may run for 20 or 3 seconds max. Anyone ever had this problem before? Any ideas? No check engine light is on. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello thedood,

I can understand your concern for this matter. I apologize that I am unable to offer technical advice; however, I would be happy to assist with setting you up with your local dealership to have this matter addressed. I have also commented on your post at: 2010 SRX Starts then dies. I look forward to your reply via PM with your full contact information, VIN, current mileage, and involved dealership.

If you don't want to take it to the dealer, another option: it is possible the Idle Speed Controller is dirty. In other words, the "choke" is probably stuck open, causing low idle and stalling. My 2002 Deville had the same problem. The ISC is somewhere along the intake. Removing it and cleaning it up usually does the trick within a few miles.
