Car keeps shutting off

My car shuts off, then i will wait about fifteen minutes and it will start again. Yesterday i went to drop my daughter off and my car shut off, the next day i went to check to see if it will start and it did. I don't know what the problem is my dodge durango keeps shutting off while i'm driving it. i first noticed the problem after driving and not being able to start it. then it shut off while i was pulling into a parking lot. after letting it sit for awhie it started again only to shut off again at a stop sign then restarting after 2 minutes. the shutting off became more recent until i was told that the problem was with a faulty cps sensor which i had fixed right away. the problem is that it shut off a few days after the sensor was repaired. HELP!!!

    I have a 1999 Dodge Durango SLT 5.2L that continues to shut off randomly while I am driving. The problem began when I slowed to a stop at a stop sign. When the car stopped it shut off. I put the car in park, turned her off, and she restarted after about 3 minutes. The problem got increasingly worse. The car began to shut off when I was reversing in the parking lot of the grocery store. Now the problem is creating dangerous and frustrating situations. It recently began shutting off when I drive and make u-turns. There is no precursor or warning before it shuts off. When I start the car it idles without a problem. The car is not shaking or making any "funny" noises. It usually takes anywhere from 5 to 45 minutes for the car to start again. It may shut off within a week or a month. No one seems to know why this is happening. We have replaced the battery and starter in the car within the past 6 months. We have gotten the oil changed within the past 2 months. We replaced the serpentine belt and water filter within the past 4 months. We had the alternator diagnosed and tested, that was not the cause. I am looking for help because Dodge does not seem to know nor care about what is causing this problem.

After extensive research I have found that in 10 out of ten cases it was the E.C.M or in other words the computer for the vehicle is faulty. You can thank dodge for this problem. What happens is they put a Temperature sensitive device in an area that gets unbelievably hot. Then the Computer overheats and shuts down. In most cases the control panel in the vehicle where the odometer is says "No Bus"
The only way to fix this problem is to put a new computer in. DO NOT buy one from the dealership they are too pricey. Get on off of Ebay. For the extremely mechanical Savy you can do what I did in my durango. I carefully cut the tape away from the main harness then marked everything and cut the harness drilled a hole through my firewall (Just be careful where you drill) fed the harness through and reconnected my computer and mounted it under the dash so when it is extremely hot here in arizona the A/C Keeps the computer cool. With this method I have NEVER had this problem happen to me.
Just don't do this if vehicle is under warranty it will violate the ciditions of the warranty. Hope this helps. I have seen this problem posted to other sites and am just trying to let everyone know what it is and How to fix it.

I had a problem with my darango shutting down at stop signs. it turns out that the tranny fluid was low and would shift to the front when stopping at a stop signs and the sensor could not read the tranny fluid at all and would shut down the darango .

Try getting your transmission solenoid replaced. After I got mine replaced it ran fine after that. That's the exact same thing my Lumina was doing.

try replacing the crankshaft position sensor - it's a common problem on the 88's and is only about a $30 part

I have a problem


I've heard this is a very common problem with the 88's, and the best research I've found so far suggests that you should replace the crankshaft position sensor - it's only about $30, but requires a little work.
