Cranks back up. Shuts off and has no power! I believe the battery and alternator are good. Please help point me in the right direction. Thanks for y’all!

Hi,

This could be several different things. For example, low fuel pressure, a plugged catalytic converter, faulty crankshaft position sensor and so on can cause this. What I need you to do is simply retrieve diagnostic trouble codes. This vehicle has an OBD1 system that doesn't require a scan tool to operate. All that will be needed is a short jumper wire or even a paper clip.

Follow this link, which explains how to do it:

Do this and let me know what codes are found.

Take care,
Joe
