Car just turned off while I was driving?
While I was driving down the street my car
just kinda jerked a couple of times them
turned off? I tried right away to start it but
it wouldn't start. I waited like 5 mins. Then
it started right up? What can be the
the battery needs to be connected at all times...cable loose=no function~ perhaps your battery cables are loose or corroded~
It would be either no gas or no spark. Does your vehicle have a security system? I know on my GM's they have a security system that if all components of it are not working together, it shuts down the fuel system. Watch on dash for security light on or flashing. Another idea is, electric fuel pumps, in my experiences, when my vehicles hit 9 years, I change the fuel pump, period with good ones. I've seen it many times. How old is your vehicle if it is an 07. Even though you need to find out what the problem is. Next time it quits or before listen at the gas tank filler with cap open for fuel pump humming while someone turns the key to the RUN position NOT start it should hum for about 3 seconds. You should be able to hear it as I do. Good Luck.
Just had the same issue! Jeep randomly shut off while driving, loss of steering, and would not turn over when I tried to restart. Happened 4 times. I took it to mopar specialist and it was a sensor and wire that were bad. I drive 2012 jeep compass. Got it fixed last week hasn't shut down yet. Hope this helped
