Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1996 Neon-runs great ...new everything (including the coil)...but it will suddenly quit running (like turning a switch off..no warning)..than it might take several attempts to get it running again...I think it must be some kind of electrical short in a wire of the ignition system..any thoughts out there about this ....or is there a relay or component that may be the problem????.....thanks

It turned out that the crank sensor was mal-functioning and I replace it and that fixec the problem. You might want to lubercate the key with lock oil - if not that than a new ignition switch.
