Have the battery and alternator checked,

Thanks for your answer. One question. All lights and all instruments are still working. You can use all the power locks and radio. The car turns over, but it will not start. 15 minutes it starts up and we are off going down the road. Could that be a heat sensor of some kind? There is problem light coming on, but the car just dies. No sputtering or jumping, just boom silently dies. Thx
