Thanx for the idea.I know its not the answer. But for now its getting me by. It must be shorting out with the windows.I checked the gas at the fuel rail and I wasnt getting any, I know my windows had some-thing to do with it as stated, so im aware finding the short is labor intensive.I got under the hood and pulled the big 30 amp window fuse and it has been running fine. Very inconveinent though as I have to put it in and out depending on the weather. But until I find out exactly where, it gets us by. Thanx again for the reply

Hey man my bro has the same problem with his car. Spent like 1,200 for them to replace fuel lines then say nothing is wrong when he has some problem. I work with mobile electronics and I knew it was electrical but no one listens. His car has been to the shop 5 times with the same problem so have u yet to find out what the deal is with this and if there is a way to fix it. Any info would be greatly appriciated.

Hey I was just doin some research and I found out that there is a ground under the driver carpet. If its losing contact or has a bad contact adding another power source such as power windows would short it out. Have u checked this ground to make sure its not corroded.
