Two months ago, my car began shutting off while driving regardless of speed (shut off once at 60 mph and once at 25 mph). Anyway, a test came back that our alternator was bad, so we replaced that and have been fine for two months, until now.
I was driving and the car shuts down and turns back on after a five or so seconds. It is good for a couple of minutes and then shuts off again and stays off for ten minutes. I finally get it started and try to make it home-less than ten minutes away, but it continues to turn off and back on, so I call a tow truck so it will not damage anything. The battery and alternator check out fine.
I researched some stuff on Hyundai forums and apparently this is common with most of their models. I read some people had success replacing their crankshaft position sensor, so we did that last night and no luck. After about two minutes of idling, it shuts off.
What could this possibly be?
-Upon shut off, all lights cut out, car stops running and the brake pedal will eventually stiffen up.
-It occasionally will not crank at all.
-No constant check engine light-it will come on every once in awhile when it shuts off. Automatically, but it will not stay on for long.
