Hi Deneice, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair!

Deneice, there are many things that can cause an engine to die while driving. (1) If you have the 2.5 liter engine they have a problem with the distributor itself going bad, I'm not sure what engine you have. (2) Fuel pump low pressure can cause dyeing while driving, you'll need to have the fuel pressure checked. Bad connection and wiring issues can cause the same thing, performing a wiggle test of all the wiring while the engine is running, CAUTION: While performing this test keep your hands away from the moving belts and parts. If you wiggle all the wiring and the engine dies while wiggling in a certain area, then you may have found a frayed wire touching metal or a bad connector. Hope this helps and if you should find the time please visit my auto repair website Here:

Cranks but wont start

Whenever your car won't start, it is either fuel, spark, or air. In your case, because it died while driving and won't run very long, I think it's spark. I would guess that your alternator is no longer providing enough voltage to charge the battery, hence your battery acting like it's dead, and your car not wanting to run long when you do get it started. Use a multimeter to check the voltage coming from the alternator when the car is running. It should be 14.5V or so. If it is down around or lower than 13, replace the alternator.

Why does the security light stay on and will it make the car act up?

Light is on and you can still start and drive it? then either something is defective or a bad wire. It can act up, but usually it won't start or could die while driving. It won't make the car run bad.
