My Mom was driving and had just left our neighbourhood and then the car just shut off - the console lights (all of them) lit up and she just coasted to a stop out of traffic. She tried to re-start the car, but there was nothing but a humming (I presume this is the fuel pump)
My dad changed the fuel filter first, but still just that humming, I checked every fuse (in the power distrubution box and passenger compartment) and the relays (power distribution box), I found one blown fuse (20A for cigerette lighter). We changed the crank sensor. We checked for a spark (off one of the plugs). We checked the starter. We checked the auto shutoff reset in the trunk. We even attempted to jump start the car. Today we are going to tow it to a mechanic and have a diagnoses done.
