Asked by Sep 26, 2016 at 01:25 AM about the 2002 Ford E-Series Wagon E-350 Super Duty XL Ext

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Ford E350 Super Duty XL ext. that shuts off while driving. The
electrical system (gauges & ignition) shuts off while driving yet it will start back
up immediately and run fine in park or neutral only to shut back off if put into
any gear. When it cools down for about an hour (not totally to ambient
temperature) the problem goes away!  THANK YOU!!!

I would suspect internal battery damage or alternator. In the process make sure ground connections are good.Please click on "Mark helpful" if you're happy with the respond. Good luck :-)

I am having the same exact problem with my 2001 E-350 vehicle. What sensors could be doing this?

My 2008 E350 will do it while I'm driving but it will stay running. It happens when it shifts hard when I give it a lot of gas. I have no idea why it does this
