Question about Cars & Trucks
It may have just been a computer glitch. If it comes on again try checking the battery's state of charge. Sometimes a low voltage can throw up glitches from time to time on some models.

SOURCE: Reduced power below 4000 RPM
The main relay also controls the transmission and will cause an intermittent interruption of power and indicates its going bad. about a $60.00 replacement cost. the relay is located under left side of dash.

My problem was the same. It was diagnosed as needing a new Crank-shaft Sensor. Replaced it and it ran great. Very difficult to get to physically!

Check the battery cable ends to be sure they are tight and wont twist, I had this happen on my 96 grand caravan two years ago.

The code that tells why it died is the P0068 the throttle position sender. It can be bad but they usally last a long time. Other sensers can have troble and pull down the 5 volt reference signal and it'll make it appear that the senser is bad. You can pump the gas very quickly many times and make even a good car set this code. The computer sees a smooth signal from the senser it'll set things back to normal and it'll run just fine. The senser can be teated with an OHM meter center pin of the serser to one or the other outside termial. with the meter making a good conection. the senser should make a smottth change up and down and return to the same value as you started and never go off scale, the other terminal should do the same thing but only in the opasit direction. If it doesn't its bad but a new one stick in on fire it up and run down to the store and have them erease codes telling them you replaced the bad part and need to reset. Even then they sometimes won't do it as some stores have run into troblem with the wrong customer and they don't reset codes anymore. Then you'll have to go to a shop the has a code reader or a scanner to reset the light and or buy your own but about $80 is the cheapest you'll see for a reader that will reset (erease cdes) on OBDII vehicals. good luck

Just helped a friend fix this exact same issue on his 2004 hyundai santa fe. Replaced the purge control valve - a $39 part, even from the dealer. Had to get our hands dirty, but it took literally one single hour to replace the part. Filled it up immediately afterward and no more starting problems. Part is located directly behind the manifold - top, rear of the engine compartment - just between the engine
