    There is probably a mile of wires in your car..."the wire" shorted out? Get yourself a manual and a decent multi-meter and do some testing, or bring it to a shop that can do proper diagnosis!!!

How do you know when your fuel pump has stop working


It could be a fuse , but fuse's don't just blow for no reason , shorted circuit to ground or the fuel pump is drawing too much current (amps) . Plugged fuel filter , probabaly not the problem . How was it running before it stopped ? Low power at highway speed ? Spitting an sputtering , or just stopped running? Hooking up a fuel pressure gauge an testing pressure . Pull a plug wire an stick a screw drive in the end an hold near ground (metal ) on the engine , have a helper crank the engine . Is there spark ? Videos on youtube showing how to test for fuel and spark . Could be the ignition system too .

1999 honda crv shuts off while in drive.


next time it dies, cranks and wont start, do this if you have someone else with you. carry a spare spark plug, then when the problem arises pull off a plug wire put the spare plug into it and ground the end somewhere in the engine bay, then have someone bump the key and watch to see if the plug has a spark or not, that will at least tell you what problem to go searching for. if it had air, it still does when it dies so it will either be spark or fuel related. just because the pump runs, doesnt mean the ecu is telling the injectors to fire, so still could be a fuel issue. is the check engine light on?

2000 kia sephia cranks but engine wont run


The fuel pump may have died. Can you hear it turn on briefly, by turning the key to "on"? You may have to stand by the gas tank while someone turns the key to on. It should turn on for about 2 seconds and then stop, after pressurizing the fuel system. If you don't hear it, then check the fuel pump fuse. If the fuse is good, and the pump won't run, one needs to check that the fuel pump wire at the tank connector has battery voltage on it when the engine is cranking-then, you can assume the pump needs replacing.
If the pump is working and you have gas up to the engine, you would next check the ignition system. Start that by checking for spark on one of the spark plug wires.

CAR WONT RUN. THIS IS TRICKY.


Do the basics, you are loosing fuel or spark. When it dies, you need to quickly install a spark tester on one of your plug wires to see if you have spark while turning over engine, while it still won't start.

Engine will die


There is a Communication problem between the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and the Engine control module. That is the bad news and is why it's shutting down the engine. 
The good news is i believe there is a TSB recall on the 2004 - 2007 chevy aveo for the P0700 problem so it should be covered under warranty. 
Believe the TSB# 05-06-01-030D
Good luck and hope this helps and hope it's not a bad ECM. Check the wire harness to the ECM and TCM, look for broken wire or the harness it self gone apart.

Vehicle dies while driving down the road.


could it be the A/C pump kicking in. might be boging down the motor or electrical circuit, not letting the injectors get enough power. This could happen if the bearings are going bad in th A/C pump or there is a short in it. Just an idea. sounds like you have done the main components.
