I was driving and the motor started cutting out then shut off.
No spark.
I hooked a meter to the coil power plug.
When I turn the key to run position the fuel pump runs, both fuel pump relay and ads relay buzz. There's power to the coil for few seconds then everything quits. I shut the key off and wait 30 seconds and it will do the same thing again.
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

Good morning,

A common failure is the crank sensor for this issue.

I attached the wiring diagram and the location for you below. Check the sensor for the 8-volt reference voltage. You will need a voltmeter for this test.

5. Remove the sensor from vehicle.
6. Remove clip from sensor wiring harness.

INSTALLATION
1. Be sure the paper spacer is installed on bottom of new sensor.

2. Position camshaft position sensor in transmission housing and install mounting bolt finger tight.
3. Gently push down on sensor until paper spacer contacts the outer edge of flywheel.
4. Torque sensor mounting bolt to 6-to-8 Nm (50-to-70 in. lbs.).
