car stall while running

Asked by Feb 08, 2014 at 10:34 PM about the 2006 Chevrolet Equinox LT FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

car engine dies at any speed even backing up out of driveway. no signs of any malfunction. diagnostics checks clear except for possible anti theft system issue. once off i try to restart and there is only a click sound. i wait about 15 seconds and car restarts perfectly. no dash lights stay on.

1 Answer


Sound like a loose or dirty connection. I would inspect, clean and tighten all battery connections. Also tighten and clean the negative connections on the frame and motor. I would specially focus on the negative battery, frame and motor connections.
