Electrical and everything shuts off

When I am driving down the road, the car will just shut off and die. After I pull over and put it in park, the car will start up just fine after a couple minutes, then it will die after you start driving again. I have replaced the cam and crank sensor, cleaned the battery terminals and replaced the fuel filter.

Do you
have the same problem?

Also have you had the battery and alternator tested? It sounds like it could be a bad battery connection, corrosion.

I have had the battery tested already, where do I go to get the codes? Auto Zone said they don't do that?

There is a recall on the fuel pressure regulators. Get your vin # and call pontiac.
