You cranked the battery low.
ever do the 60k tuneup on the engine? with timing belt, per operator guide?
if not BOOM !

which engine in this Daewoo/GM-Holden/Suzuki wonder box.
what country was it sold to.?????? usa, ?
did you use a scan tool cranking (battery charged) to see if you get

if car is a USA car, IS IT?
it has (wiki quote)
The US model line features the 2.0 L four-cylinder E-TEC II made by General Motors, developing a maximum power of 132 horsepower at 5600 rpm.

this engine is listed as INTERFERENCE.
and as such bends the head valves over with the timing belt fails.
its luck thing, like walking cross street blindfolded..

SOURCE: chinese scooter

Hey Mj, you seem to know your stuff--it sounds like the drive belt broke. You can get a repair manual on amazon for approx. $15 plus shipping. It would be a great help w/ pictures and how to maintain and fix the scooter. But if you're going to dump it, u probably shouldn't invest in it. I don't know the exact model you have, but belts seem to run $20 and up. Unfortunately I don't know how difficult it is to replace. I'm sure it"s a $100 fix @ the shop.
Good Luck! countrycurt0

SOURCE: Car turns over but won't start

one thing you need to remember.... as it gets colder (that's not cold yet) the battery gets less efficient as the demand for more power increases with the starter. were you able to start it by boosting it.... also what weight motor oil is in it. 30 to 50 weight oil turns to the consistency of molasses in cold weather.

SOURCE: 1987 suzuki samurai dies going down the road. Now has no spark?

Ignition control module within distributor could be bad resulting in no spark or could be the main ignition module

SOURCE: My Samurai wont start .

I had a similar issue with my '86....driving home, made a left turn, and engine shut down. Coasted to a stop, and had a look under the hood. Cranked over fine, had gas, spark, but no go! After a tow home, and more in-depth investigating, turned out that the timing belt had broken! The older engine has no interference between valves and pistons, so installing a new belt got 'er going again for about $40. You can look down though the oil fill port or loosen the upper screws on the belt cover to confirm that the valves are/are not moving when the engine cranks.

Why does my 2003 pontiac sunfire lose all power while driving

That can be the symptom of a bad Ignition Control Module, or also a bad crank position sensor. The ICM can be taken off and tested for free at any parts store. The crank sensor circuit can be tested on the car with a multi-meter. Also small motors (like a fuel pump motor) that are starting to fail can sometimes work until they get hot and then stop working until they cool down again.

Next time the car shuts down and won't restart, check for spark on a spark plug wire with the engine cranking over. If you have no spark, suspect the ignition control module or the crank position sensor. If you still have spark, but won't start, check if the fuel pump is putting gas up to the engine.

Probably a crank angle sensor, maybe a throttle position sensor, but those usually throw codes out. Could just be a bad computer, too.

Service engine light comes on and lose power

Well for one you already paid them $90.00 so make them fix it right. Second of all it could be many things. What are the codes? If your service engine soon light is on there are codes set. Does the car run fine when cold then as it warms up does it start to run rough and eventually die?
