You've mentioned the previous owner several times. Did you just purchase the car and it had this problem when you bought it or have you owned the car and its been running fine until now and you're just giving us some history?

It's not the starter, he's jumped it and it works.
It's either a VATS issue or a start enable relay issue.
I suspect VATS because the fuel pump isn't being turned back on when the engine starts, hence the engine dies quickly.

Well you hadn't commented yet. So I took a guess lol and that's what I would have done and had to do also. Then would of just asked you when that didn't work lol

Ok gotcha. I agree the starter is good and the fuel pump isn't running. But that's already been established.
