No shut offs, these are none for fuel pumps,depending on the engine it may be a bad timing belt, the belt may have poped or jumped, start by checking the fuel preasure,if there preasure about 50-60 psi them the next step would be the belt, a compression test on the cylinder should tell you or removing the cover and checking the timing marks. i would say its one of the two a fuelpump or the timing belt, i checked and the 96 caravan does have a timing belt in the 4 and 6 cylinder engines. hope this helps.

I have a 2008 Nissan Rogue with the Intelligent Key keyless ignigition and entry system. Both of my keys appear to have dead batteries but I can't figure out how to open them to change the batttery


I also have a 2008 Nissan Rogue, and my intelligent keys quit working too. However, I do not believe it's the batteries, as one of my keys has never been used. I checked the fuses, but they are fine.

My 1997 chevy van will cut off while driveing and then won't start back up right away and sometimes not at all. I sprayed starter fuid in air box to get it on a trailer and the van stayed running for about...


There could be many things to cause this problem.
Ideally when it quits is the best time to begin the diagnosis. First thing is to check to see if there is spark at the spark plugs when cranking and listen to hear the fuel pump run when you first cycle the ignition on.
But going on experience and what you have told me so far I would begin with ignition problems.
Because you mentioned it quit while driving and restarted after a cool off period it makes me think that an ignition part is failing when hot.
Engine heat and electrical current flow can heat electrical circuits, expand them, and go open circuit.
An ignition module, the pickup in the distributor or the ignition coil would be on my first checklist.
Give me a note back if you need more leads.
