Re: Engine turns off when driving randomly!!

I should have been more specific. The original relay resides in the TIPM but apparently cannot handle the load and goes kaput. The remedy is an external relay wired into the circuit. There is a thread or three around here on it. I had mine done a year ago. No problems since and the installation was clean.

See the TIPM thread on this page, and find my posts. The result was my crank position sensor was failing, causing the exact symptoms as a failing TIPM. Zero issues since the sensor was replaced.
