1998 Saturn sc2- car shuts off while driving

I was driving on the highway at 65 mph the car just shut off as if I had
turned off the key. When I attempted to restart ( several times) it would
run if I held it at 3000rpm, but once I let off it would die.

Had the same issue a few years back...and now something similiar.

My car would randomly shut off whether on the high way or not. Just replaced battery also. Brought to dealer, tested Batter/Alternator, and ended up with being just a loose battery cable. Fixed for about 4 years now.

Currently, I have a loose battery cable or ground, because the battery/alternator is fine, but when its cold, sometimes when I tap my brakes, the radio goes out randomly. Or lose all power after turning the key on, and move the positive battery cable around, and then everything works fine. So I am still trying to see what the problem is, just sounds like a cable or corrision.

Hope this helps.

What is causing my 94 Saturn SC2 to loose power while driving on the highway at 60 mph

Possibly the throttle body is dirty and clogged and not allowing proper fuel. Possibly bad fuel pump causing low fuel pressure. Possible problems with the exhaust system (clogged muffler or catalytic converters). Are you getting CEL (check engine light) when this happens?

A2002 saturn vue shut off going 65 mph on hiway engine turns over but want crank

Hi Wayne:
2 possible problems.....
- No spark
- No fuel.
I'd suggest that you pull a plug lead and check for spark. No Spark, chase ignition problem like maybe failed CPS.
If you have spark then it has to be fuel. Injector signal not happening. TPS failure?
Just some ideas.
Hope they help.

What does the body fuse power on my 2002 saturn sc2

That is not a valid test for parasitic load. An inductive ammeter is the best way to check. It may take a half hour or so for all the modules to shut down after you turn off the key and close the doors.
