Pontiac Sunfire 1996 shutting off while driving

Asked by May 14, 2018 at 11:04 AM about the 1996 Pontiac Sunfire

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 96 Sunfire randomly shuts down after about an
hour or so of driving. I just put in a new battery and
the alternator is good. The gauges flash a little and
the speedometer bounces around until the car
comes to a stop. It's like the power cuts throughout
the vehicle. Then it won't start. After about 15
minutes, it starts back up and drives fine until the
power cuts again.
