Driving along and the car dies, no CEL, tach and speedo gauge needles drop to nil and i can't hear the fuel pump running.
It turns over, NO CEL, no response from the tach and no noise from the fuel pump. I checked for voltage at the PDC for always on and key on circuits that checked out, Fuses and relays have been cleared and I initially thought it was the fuel pump and replaced that, no luck there.
I also updated the ckps, cmps and vss for the new connector style. I have ran redundant grounding at the connection points for the pcm to the (-) battery post.
There is no designated time, operating temp or driving conditions to trace what might be the problem.It just happens out of the blue and with NO warning.
Plus the PCM never shows a code.
I also checked the condition of the wires running underneath the exhaust manifold, around the egr valve and there were no signs of physical damage from heat other than the wire insulation sicking to each other.
I have a couple of videos posted here. http://forums.neons.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=389292&p=3275197#p3275197
