I've got an 87 CRX and had the same problem. It started by just dying on the road, but would start back up. The problem got worse until eventually it just cranked over and over but did not start. I went nuts checking all the obvious...coil, distributor, fuel pump. Somebody told me on some CRX models there is a fuel cutoff valve in the event of a wreck. I don't have one on mine but you may have one bad on yours. I eventually tracked my problem down to the ignition switch. It provide power to the starter for cranking, but as soon as the key was released, it lost electrical contact. Hope some of this helps. Good luck.

xxboixx : Just try jump starting it.

If your car is a Saturn or any orther gm it could eb your bcm(body control module) it is a stupid thing gm put in their vehicles to completely control everything electronic if it fails your car can just die while running if you have power windows and locks the would start going crazy your trunk could open if if iss electric and it can make your car seem like it has a completely dead battery even if it if fully charged. if it is a Saturn the module in in the dash behind the stereo but even if you change it yourslef you have to go to the dealer to get it programed abotu $500 job

Hold the power button until it shuts down and then when it has, wait about five minutes. After that, press the power button to start it back up again.

If you are driving in the daytime, your car will loose power and then turn off. If you try to start it, it will not even crank. That's because once the alternator broke down, the engine was now using the power of the battery to run. And since the battery is not getting charged by the alternator, then the battery runs out of power and everything electrical in the car shuts down. If you are driving at night, your head lights will dim a lot and then your car shuts down. Try to start it and it won't even crank.

Your system will probably won't even start. randomly shuts down. May cause failure to your system.

The # one problem with today's cars is fuel pumps ; this sounds like one.As the pump gets warm,it loses power. Do have it checked out.

If this is the remote start system, it shuts down the engine for security.

I would suspect you have a very weak fuel pump. Have it tested.

make sure it's getting fuel and make sure it's getting spark to the plugs.

When the key is in the "start" position all accesssories are designed to be "locked out" to concentrate all the available power to the starting circuit. How about the "on" position - do accessories have power at that position? - if not could be a bad ignition switch

Could be the fuel filter is completely clogged. Does it shuts down faster when revving the engine?

User Avatar

No, your kidneys can't start back because when it shuts down means it stopped and that you have to replace it but it can't start back

Power management - is designed to reduce the amount of drain on your phone's battery (and thus extend the time between charges). The function simply shuts down apps and programs that are rarely used (you can still manually start them if needed).

Alternator is most likely going bad. Does your car start right back up after this happens? If your alternator is bad your car is trying to run on pure battery power and getting zero if little charge from your alternator. When this happens little by little your car will run out of power to everything and in turn shut off.

My 86 vette was doing that ,was getting fuel and spark to the distibutor , but had no spark to the fuel injector ,fixed fuse problem , started are away and stayed running

If the lights in the car come on, then at least part of the system is getting power. Check the battery connections again. Then check the starter solenoid and starter to insure that they are getting power and are working properly.

It can be a number of things. You need to start from scratch and eliminate things. Start with the basics- fuel and power. Make sure it is getting fuel and make sure it is getting spark.

The computer will not turn on at all, because it recognises there is not enough power. You should attach to a power supply and either let it charge for some time or turn it on while it is charging.

User Avatar

it means that it shuts off and won't start It could also mean that the battery is dead and needs to be recharged. Or more seriously the timing belt has snapped. Spark plug could be malfunctioning as well...there are many possibilities.
