Is the Service Engine Soon light on? if so, Go to your local autozone or the like and have the codes scanned and report back with the codes.

Oh and Welcome to the Club!

When it dies, what all dies. Like, if the radio is on when the car dies, does the radio die too. at night, do the lights die also? Or does the engine die, but all electrical stuff continue to work.

What model level/engine? My 98 did this when I first got it. Not sure which fixed it, but the two cheap/easy things I did at the same time to cure it were:

1. New Fuel Pressure Regulator

2. Tighten throttle body mounting bolts.

Never had the same problem since.....

same symptoms as mine. I have previously replaced the crank sensor. This morning, it died, all accessory functions continued to work, but this time no crank. No click, nothing. I was in the parking lot, coasted to my stall, then it started. I think my next step is to do the "check all power cable ends thing".
