Complete engine shut down when driving car at slow or highway speeds. Loose all power. All gauges go dead. Let it sit for ~ 10 min. And starts up again: Have replaced the following: C1 Wiring Harness to computer (all terminals), have replaced fuel filter, crank shaft pos. Sensor, ignition switch, ignition lock cyl. No 'check engine light' ever comes on. Grounding ok.

Question: do u think I need to replace main computer? Thanks Gil"

No to the main computer at this point. Have you checked to make sure there are no fuseable links that are going bad? Also, are the battery terminals tight and clean?
