Without knowing the year of your vehicle, I can only assume that a component, probably the ignition control module is getting too hot. This could be the module is bad or the resistance between the coils and the spark plugs is too high. Check the resistance in the ignition wires to see if they are within specs and check the spark plugs themselves.

A new module could solve your problem but, if the cause of its predecessor's failure is not fully could happen again.

SOURCE: when I turn the ignition switch to start the motor

If the security light is not coming on then you should check the cable going to the starter and make sure it is good and tight.If the light does come on then you need to get the code or codes read.Even if the light is not coming on I would still check for codes in the body control module.Let me know what you find.Good luck.

SOURCE: what causes the car to cut off while driving. When

Most frequent causes of that condition are either the fuel pump or the crank position sensor. Both really need to be tested but if when you turn the key to the on position right after it stalls, you cannot hear the pump running in the fuel tank, it's a good bet that is your problem. When the pump is beginning to fail, it gets hot and binds. As soon as it cools down it will work normally. Generally the interval between when it starts back up and stalls again will get shorter and shorter as it gets worse. Pretty much the same thing can happen to cps. That does require testing with a digital ohmeter to validate failure BUT it may read as good if it isn't in a stall condition.

SOURCE: My Cherokee keeps cutting out when I am driving

There are two, possibly three items you need to look at. Your fuel pump could be in the process of failing, in which case it will begin to bind. After it cools down it will resume operating till it again heats back up. In right after it turns off you cannot hear it hum when you turn the key on then likely that's the problem. The other two items also can do pretty much the same thing but are harder to diagnose.
First is your crankshaft position sensor and next is the cam sensor. Both are made using a wire coil that can also heat and expand, then short out, when cool they will test good. Either may or may not set a code but should be tested using a digital multi-meter and a manual such as haynes or chilton as a guide. You must test them while in failure or you may get misleading info.

SOURCE: 2002 MERCEDEZ CLK 430 Shut off and wont start for atleast 10 mins wait???

Hi there, on the mercedes the crank sensor goes bad frequently. Its between the transmission and the engine on the drivers side about 11 o'clock position. You will need a internal torx 8 to remove the small screw that holds it, once removed see if it has oil on it, if it does change the sensor and get ready to do a engine rear main seal job because its going to happen again but not too soon. Please buy a Bosch crank sensor and no aftermarket, its going to save you future headaches.

Why is it that after diving my 06 bmw 528i about 5 min cut car off it restartes drive again for about 15 min cut car off if I try to restart the car I have nothing no start but if I wait for half hour

Have the wiring to the starter checked and tightened. Seems as though the starter has become heat soaked, binds and does not start until it has cooled down..did you install it correctly replace any heat shield that may have been in place? Be sure you have the correct starter...Some will fit but if the torque if not correct it can put strain on the starter.

Someone will need to check it over when it fails to start. You need to know if it is not getting fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs.

My x5 3.0i 2006 t won't start this morning but temperature, gas level clock were wrong so I turn the engine off and restart a couple times it won't start and I saw message trans. false safe...

no. I'd suggest to disconnect a battery for 15 mins, reconnect, wait for 5 mins and try to restart. If it doesn't help (sometimes there's a program block to prevent stealing equipment) call a dealer

I had the same problem. Turns out,( and I didn't believe it when I was told) but, my problem turned out to be cheap (inferiour) plugs and wired. I was reccomended to use NKG plugs and Borg-Warner wires.
