car won't stay running 65 Buick Riviera

Recommended Posts

When I turn my car over it fires and will run as long as the key is engaged. Once the key is let off it dies.


I noticed my ground strap is broke? Could this cause this issue?


What other places should I check.

Step 1, this sounds like voltage is dying at the coil. Get volt meter, turn ign on and check voltage at coil(should be 12v or close to it). If not, check your coil wire under dash. Probably cooked.  PM me, will guide you through repair. FYI, it's probably your switch that caused it. More to it.
