If the car dies like you flipped a killswitch and wont even try to crank the motor I would definitely lean toward the ignition switch in the steering column is fried. Once it shorts out the car dies and wont crank.

before you go any further
pull the oil filler cap from the rocker cover and see if the cam shaft and rockers are moving when you are cranking it over

1995 mitsubishi mirage engine wobbles and dies after heating up.


It could be that the valves need adjusting or redone. When they heat up it swells the rubber and the metal. If you have a bent valve it should do it all the time or it could be one of the valve springs is going. Either way it sounds like it is something in the valve or the valve seats or the springs.
