Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
I have a 1996 Chevy S10, extended cab. It will run most of the time but it will shut down and after a short period of time it will start back up. I've driven 10 miles and it would shut down. I've driven it 40 miles and it would run. Once I tried starting it first thing in the morning and it wouldn't start, I shook some wires and I got back in the truck and it started. I tried shaking the wires when it was running but it didn't shut off. the garages in the area can't fix it or put it on the machine since it's running and no warning lights are on.
Check if your wires are on TIGHTLY on the battery, if one loses a touch, your car will shut off. If you go over a tiny bump, or turn to one side or another, they could disconnect, causing your car to lose a + or a - cable connection. Which would very well make your car shut off. Also, check for any corrosion on the battery terminals. Good luck.
