check your fuse box. In my '97 the fuse retainers were loose and no longer kept a tight fit with the fuse causing my truck engine to turn off sometimes while driving or not start at all (not fun in mid turns). Wiggle the fuse around while its running or you're trying to start it and see if this helps. If it does either have the fuse box/part replaced or for a temporary fix shove the next bigger fuse in it.
