You have a relay also for the fuel pump and your injectors that could be going as well...

Thanks every one. I know what a fuel pump does when it goes out. I figured out the problem. It was the crank shaft sensor and spark plug wires were arcing off tha valve cover. This "WILL" cause the car to shut off. Thanks for the response.
