1998 Chevy Monte Carlo 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 140 miles
I have been having problems with the car shutting it self down. The ABS light would come on then the battery light, and then the headlights would dim and remaining dashlight lights would come on and then it would die. If I waited 10 minute or so I could restart it, drive for a few miles and it would happen again. I replaced the battery and alternator and that seemed to fix it for three months but now it is happening again and much quicker. I had the alt bench tested and it puts out 14V, but in the car it is only producing 9V. I checked the computer codes and the only one is, " multiple cylindar misfiring". There is an after market remote car starter installed which is not working properly, when used I will turn the key on and hit the brake and the car will shut off. Other times I will use it and after five minutes of driving it will shut off the car. Could this be the problem and if so how do I remove it?
