Are you sure it is the electrical system that shuts off? I have a 2000 Sonata that stalls at any speed and even at idle. But it is not the electrical system as the radio continues to function. I have read that I should have a dealer look into replacing/rerouting the MAF (mass air flow) sensor-connector wiring harness. As of yet, I have not had this done... so the jury is still out on whether or not this is my problem.

I had a similar problem. My car would act like it was about to stall out while I was in the middle of driving but then would kick back into gear and keep going. I took it in and it was the input speed sensor.


I have a 2001 Sonata and this past week I have had an issue of the car stalling after driving for 15 minutes. It would stall out while I was driving. I took it in and the mechanic said it is a common problem with Sonata's that the wires under the dash become exposed and rattle against a metal bar. This causes the car to kick into safe mode and shuts down. Not sure if this helps.
