About 3 weeks ago our van started shutting off while driving. It would usually do it for about a half a second. The speedometer and tach would go to zero and then resume when the problem was over. Now it has come to a point where it will shut down for several seconds and even a minute or two. During this period the starter does not work until I hear a relay "click" and then it will start for a few seconds.
If I leave the ignition on when the engine is off, the relays in the fuse block will start clicking, sometimes frantically. When I try to start during one of these, the car the starter engages and disengages rapidly as well.
The headlights and dash lights are unaffected by any of this.
I could upload a video to you tube if needed.
have the same problem?
