Describe better how it just dies, please...

I had a LeSabre that would "just die". Turned ot to be the bolt that held the 2 pieces of the Maxi fuse center together in the center. It had loosened and corroded, causing a total loss of electric to the car....

Crank Position Sensor...I had this same problem and tried everything to fix it with no give....until I broke down and changed this sensor...no problems to this day....that was 6-7 months ago.....

I would be just driving cruising whatever and it would just go dead....it would start back up but after a while I got tired of it..the part is only about 20 bux at autozone and the labor wasn't too bad...but you will need a puller to pull off the bottom pully....the sensor is behind it.

The whole car turns off radio and all.
