Default Car dies for no reason????

I have a friend who has a 2001 SSEI and awhile back his supercharger belt broke, He had it replaced but ever since the car will randomly die. It could be at 60mph or at a stop light. Sometimes it starts right up and sometimes it takes a couple of minutes?

Any Ideas??

Yup. What did they find on the SilverBullet? Loose connection in the fuse/relay center under the hood? Either that or a flaky battery connection.

And if it'* not the loose connection UNDER the under the hood located relay area, then it could be the belt beat up the crank sensor or got something on it.

I believe it was the IGN1 fuse in the underhood fusebox that was the problem. Pull the fuse and push the connections in the block closer together to see if that helps. While you're there, check the power connection going to the box, as well as the 3 screws inside. Then do the same in the rear fuse box under the seat..

Yes this sounds alot like SilverBullets trouble and it turned out to be the underhood fuse box.

This underhood fuse box is the same one that has caused the fiery deaths of more than a couple Grand Prix'*. All 2k Bonnevilles should check for proper connections and heat from time to time.

Here'* Paul'* topic. The solution does wrap it up on the last page or two:

I personally witnessed 3 or 4 of these episodes, and had to go back for him a couple times.
