Had the same problem with my 03 Exped EB 5.4L 4x4 (225k miles). Saw a post somewhere that indicated that the wire coming from the battery can wear through the insulation because it is routed over the top of one of the AC components. As suggested, I used high-temp electrical tape on the wire from the battery where it touches or rests on the AC component. Haven't had the stalling / delayed restarting problem since.

If you are still experiencing this issue and you notice a loss of power leading up to the shut down, you may want to look into the condition of your catalytic converters. Back pressure building from clogged converters could cause the same scenario that you have described. The engine will run for a short time before shutting down and then be able to be restarted after a period of rest.

03 suzuki grand vitara starts up in morning after 10 minutes its warm drive to town shut off wont start back starts and dies starts and dies 3 times then starts and runs till next shut off


check whether you do have a problem with your cam or crank sensor. Or the fuel pump whether when it gets warm stop working,(loosing the pressure ) These things you do need a specialist to check the sensors and the fuel pump.

My fuel shut off switch keeps kicking off and the vehicle cuts out. Why does this happen?


Replace the switch, it may be defective. It should only trip from a sharp impact.

Why does my 2005 chevrolet classic theft system keep coming on and then the car won't start afterwards unless reset by turning the key to ACC for 10 minutes then the car starts?


If you have a spare set of keys try using the different key. The identity chip in your key may be shorting.

Otherwise the "Reader" in your ignition switch may be cutting out. This puts it into an activation loop.

WhAT MAKES FORD 2003 EXPEDITION SHUT OFF AND SMOKE FROM FUSE PANEL


TUrn off your vehicle; first I suggest check in the fuse panel what fuse is causing this problem, if the fuses ar ok, then you will need to take off the entire fuse panel to check harnesses connections and wires attached there.

Keep in mind that, if you stay driving or testing in a ON condition, cpould damage other components, systems or devices.

Hope this helps.

I have a 1991 oldsmobile cutlass ciera


Igniton module prabably is the problem. Without testing it when it does not start we are just guessing but usually when it acts up only when the car gets hotter it usually points to an ignition issue.
