Car just turns off while driving. All my lights, radio, etc, stay on. I then have to wait thirty minutes to an hour to get it started again. When I try before it just cranks.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

This sounds like a classic crankshaft angle sensor which when they go out may not trigger a check engine light but we should run the codes.

If no codes come up this guide will give you an idea of what you are in for when doing the job.

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what happens.

Cheers, Ken
