Car dies while driving, put it in park, and it turns right back on no problems

Asked by Apr 08, 2014 at 07:56 AM about the 2003 Chevrolet Impala LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car randomly turns off, while driving or parked, but when I put it in park and turn the key, it comes right back on.  No problems.  From reading other similar posts, I am sure it's not the battery because it just started doing here within the last 3 weeks.  Could it be the fuel filter or air intake?  Thanks!

GM just had a big recall on faulty ignition switches. Check to see if your car was one that was affected. In the meantime, remove your key from your key chain and just use the car key by itself. Heavy keychains can cause the key to turn in the ignition while driving and shut off.
