I was driving down the interstate in my 2011 Chev. Silverado, going down and underpass when the engine died for about 10 seconds and then started up again. The volt meter went from the normal 15 down to about 10 but it drove fine the last 70 miles home. The last two times I have driven it, it is normal. Has me baffled as to what might have happened. battery cables are secure.
