After the dealer pulled out and re-did all the wiring under the driver side dash; they were 99.9 % sure it was fixed.But just in case, they hooked up a by pass toggle switch in case it died and was again a no start. It apparently by passed all the other electrical, turned on the dash, and would let it start with the key.
My wife was on her way to work, and while sitting first in line for the left turn advance, at the busiest intersection in that area, It Died.
The switch helped to get it started. But it would not run. The instant the gas pedal was even looked at it would die. It was sputtering and chugging and just bad bad bad.
Got another tow to the dealer. And Thank The heavens Above !!! For the first time after months, the car wouldnt start at the dealer either. Finally got repeat symptoms for them.
The problem was a bad ground wire somewhere under the carpet on the drivers side.
Replaced the ground and all was good.
Put the bad one back and same exact symptoms.
Put the good one back on and all was good.
They did that a few times and it repeated. All has been good since.
No charge for all the time trying to diagnose the problem. No charge for all the re-wiring that was done. Just gave her the keys and told her that they were 110 % sure that its now fixed.
She actually got a call from them the other day while she was at work. They wanted to check and see if all was still good.
Just a stupid ground wire
