Suburban shuts down while driving....

Asked by Apr 19, 2019 at 07:02 PM about the Chevrolet Suburban

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 08 Suburban is great.  Suddenly, the Vortec engine completely shuts
down, losing all power, all the gauges illuminate, and the dash light says:  
Skid Protection Off".  When I tap on the battery connections and try the key,
it always starts up.  Within about 40 seconds to 5 minutes, it just shuts down
again.  I had both the battery cables from starter to the battery replaced and
soldered to the connectors .........no difference.  The battery is 5 months old,
and has been  checked to be fine.
