I've had my 01 GTS for awhile now and it is now shutting off for no reason. I can feel it struggleing for awhile then it dies and all my dash lights come on. I gotta turn off the car and turn it back on while drifting at 65mph+. Since its an intermediate electrical problem and it happens randomly the local dealership was no help except to lift $500 outta my wallet. Has anyone had this problem before? How did you solve it? The car is all stock.
damn. i had somehting similar with my jeep. it did it for me and my dad but never for dealer. tehy tried everyhing they coudl think of. Eventually they jsut swapped out the ECU adn it never did it again. maybe what you need to do

I once had this trouble when I installed a funnel directly from the driver's side foglight hole to bring some colder air to my shortram Intake, the funnel was almost connected to the shortram wich caused the engine to shutoff when i didn't press the gas pedal at 50mph+
