"While driving the car, the bells go off - DING DING DING DING - and suddenly, the car cuts out and just dies where it is. It WILL start up again right away."

Clean the battery cables at the battery. Remove them and scrub ithem down with water and baking soda. Use a toothbrush to reach inside the bolt holes in the battery.

After you do so, you'll have to reset the presets on the radio and it will run crappy for a few miles while the computer resets.

Bet this cures it.

I'm not sure I buy the battery cables. I don't think the warning chime would be associated with a power loss.

" I don't think the warning chime would be associated with a power loss"

I agree. But it could be associated with an intermittent power supply, and thus my reasoning.

The chime itself requires 12V. And the chime is usually indicative of a SERIOUS problem, not a simple power loss.

Get the car scanned.

That check gages light will come on if any of the gages falls into the red shaded area, or for low fuel...

Usually when the car stalls out you don't notice untill the chime goes off... I'll bet the car stalled and in that split second the check gages went off as the oil pressure dropped to 0...

Does this happen at random? Will it run fine for a while and then quit?

Possible crank sensor issue...

Guys any thoughts here?

Yes, it is more random than anything else. It could happen while driving down a street, or it happens while doing 65 on the highway. It just DINGS then dies.

Hubby had the car scanned about a year and a half ago and 2 codes came up:

1. OLD HISTORY CODE (which they said was "invalid")

2. ANTI-THEFT CODE (which they said was "someone might have tried to start the car with a different key).

Other than that, there were no other codes.

You definitely need a new scan. Even if it'* an old history code, I'd like to see everything the PCM is or has reported in the last 2 weeks or so.

Has the security light come on and stayed on while driving, or flashed with no end? The flashing when you start it is normal for a few seconds...

Being that it starts everytime I'd say that the VATS is fine...

I'm still leaning towards the crank sensor, But Like Willwren I do agree that you need a newer scan complete with codes ..

I asked the hub about this - he says the security light does not come on.
