I have had them fail due to heat. I used a certain dilectric grease on the underside to help dissipate the heat. If not heat, then possibly a poor ground.
I would suspect a failing ignition control module.
I was told the computer was bad. I would test the computer first. It may also be the ignition module. I had the same problem with my '94 Mazda truck. It would be running fine and then just shut off. Also had trouble starting up every now and again. Usually i could just tap on the ignition module several times and it would start right up.
The ignition module on a 2002 Impala is located in part of the electrical system. In some cars, the module kept the car from starting. When the key was turned there would not be a clicking noise. The module works with the passlock system of the car.
yes once the ignition control module heats up it would cause the vehicle to stall. usually after it cools down the vehicle will restart again.
more than likely is the ignition module. What year?
Ignition module is bad I had a similar problem on a Pontiac grand am- it was the torque inverter. It would idle fine, run in nuetral, but as soon as it was put into gear it stalled with a thump.

On my 90 740gl it is right next to the ignition coil. It depends on the ignition system used. On a Regina ignition, I think everything is built in the coil (The big square one) The regular round coil is for BOSCH ignition and a separate module is use. NOT SURE, would appreciate confirmation.
Answer testing ignition modulenot all part stores have the ability to test ignition modules,a sure sign would be discoloration of the module or if the outside of the module has a softness to it if neither is apparent you could go to advance auto stores and they do have a peice of equipment to test your module, I used to work at a advance auto parts store
typically this means the ignition module is bad
