1996 Oldsmobile 88 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles
My daughter's car stalls and will restart after sitting for a while (sometimes a few minutes, sometimes hours). This usually happens when she is slowing down to turn or come to a stop. It can also happen if she has driven somewhere and comes back out to leave.
Right before the car stalls, she notices that the power windows will stop working. All other electrical components seem to be working while the car is stopped with the exception of the power windows. The frustrating part is that by the time a mechanic looks at it, it is starting again and they are not receiving any codes when they hook it up to the computer.
We have had all the grounds cleaned and tightened and the crank sensor has been changed. We do not want to dump any more money in this car since it is high miles. I have heard of other people with this problem, but never a solution.
have the same problem?
