Question about Ford Mustang

2 Answers

Crane Hi-6 quits going down the road. Sometimes it starts right back up, sometimes in 5 minutes or so. I noticed when it dies that the led is out on the ignition box. Could the box heat up or something and start right back up? I do still have power in the car and lights.

Check power SUPPLY to the ignition box when the problem is happening.If supply and ground are maintained at all times,then yes,it is the ignition box.I have an MSD 6AL i bought NEW about 5 years just quit working one day.MSD said they would fix it if i shipped it to them for a min/max charge.Min like $80.....max was $150.I bought an electronic distributor,module,and wiring harness from Mopar Performance for $200 brand new.

Why does my car try to die when i drive down the road?

Try to check the ignition coil, when you driving it become hot then the car dies end won't start. After awhile when it's cold, then it will start. Replace the ignition coil.
I hope it solves the problem

Had this happen with a Honda Accord: carb icing.

Car is quiting while going down road

Have you ever replaced the ignition coil? Sometimes a coil will heat up and break apart inside losing your connection/charge inside it to fire your plugs.
