Electrical problem
2005 Saturn V6 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 62000 miles

my car will start, but after about 20 min. Of driving it will shut down for no reason. If I let it sit about 10 min. It will start up with no problem, but will not stay started unless it sits for hours after the first time it shuts down. I have replaced the battery and alternator already. Help

Vue I assume?

Testing needs to be done. Especially on the alternater. Reman alternaters have a higher tendency of failures compared to most parts.

I believe you are saying that the engine will not crank when it isn't starting. As the battery sets, it will slowly recharge enough to crank sometimes. Recheck the alternater would be my start.

Saturns of that era were known for crank sensors, try one.
