CAR JUST SHUT OFF WHILE I WAS DRIVING

1998 Ford Escort • 185,000 miles

The car just shut off while I was driving down the road. No fuel pressure. No ignition. Checked all fuses. Checked all relays. Coil has fire. Replaced crank sensor. If this is an electrical problem where do I need to start. Should the car have a security box and where would it be located? If so, could this box be the problem?

Start with the ignition switch. It supplies power to all these components. There is a power relay that turns on fuel and spark as well.

There is no security box.
