Default 97 Camaro Shutting down religously

Maybe someoen can here can help me out.

I have a 97 Camaro RS, V6, Auto, that shuts down 5-6seconds after ignition as if the fuel pump is just shutting off. This happens quite often and is unpredictable to the point I am afraid to even take it to the car wash, because it might not start back up.

Any thoughts?

Is the security light flashing? Might be a pass key problem

if you have the type of key with the resistor try cleaning the contacts with alcohol on a swab or brake cleaner
