Sounds like a classic crank sensor fault. If not there may be a relay that heats up and shuts down such as a fuel pump relay. If possible try to pull some codes and other can help with this more. I remember on some of my vehicles in the past you had to pull codes by a flashing light kinda like morse code. I was a code whisperer many years ago Good Luck!


Replace the pgmfi relay. It is located on driver side kick Panel Under corner of dash.
