your fan is the problem...it's not turning fast enough to cool the engine off. I need more info on what type of fan you have....elec fan or a clutch fan?

Brake squeal..... water on brakes from car wash ?
Hissing noise.....Puncture ? you will soon know !
or possibly trapped water from car wash dripping on to the exhaust?
Can´t think of anything more.
See what happens in a few hours.
Good Luck !

SOURCE: Intermittent Power Loss
There are many things it could be but a few suggestions are to have the battery load checked (battery could be faulty), check for broken or corrosion wires, check fuses inside power distribution box (loose or corroded connections), and see if there might be an association with the ignition switch and your power lose. I dont think it applies to your issue but its not unheard of to have a faulty ignition switch. Good luck.
