This problem is with your fuse box. There is a known issue where one of the fine copper wires inside breaks and seperates upon heating, but will reconnect once things cool down. Search SSRFanantics forum for the solution.

It is i have the same issues the dealer ship can't figure out the problem . I m told the the fuel pump , key switch, which been replace and maybe a sensor is going bad! Sky walker I hope you are right!


I had the same problem. Once the car would get up to operating temperature it would stall out. Problem was diagnosed buy the Tecks that the problem was in the fuse panel on the left hand wheel shield. It would also start on its own after cooling down. I had them replace the fuse panel the vehicle is back performing as it should Total cost $1200

yes it is the main fuse box . I took it apart and soldered over the bad spot worked great for about 6 months. then it had the same problem had tostep up and buy a new one from Chevrolet dealer expensive but has been working fine for over a year . A bad design to save money for GM manufacturing.
