If you have tilt steering wheel and the little black spot or carbon or resistance on your ignition key then the problem might be
some very tiny cables coming from the ignition lock cylinder all the way down to the steering column most of times the are white in color and they broke internally,
next time this happend try to mess with the steering wheel position up and down and see if you get any luck but if you see this little cables under the steering column most likelly you need a new ignition lock cylinder replacement.
i hopee and this help because you did not answe me to se if your key come with the little black resistor on it. good luck

Randomly locking doors and sometimes continuous clicking leading to battery drainage.


If the locking seems continuous and almost glitchy I would buy new locks for both front doors. If it seems to be one timing lock and not acting glitchy then it most likely is a interference with a security alarm at that point I would disconnect the fuse for pwr locks as a quick fix.

Intermittent stalling


The mass airflow (MAF) sensor could be at fault as your mechanic should know from his diagnosis. The intake air control (IAC) should be checked as well.

my younger brothers' truck did the same thing and there was a relay up under the dashboard that would get hot and shut of(kind of a circuit breaker unit) most of the operating systems will flash at you when only battery voltage is available which explains the lights coming on..these newer trucks also have a performance chip in the system that will act up when it gets warm also..replace this and you may be ok..let me know what happens also.. good luck.

My 1994 jeep grand cheeroke 4.0 inline 6 cyl will start but dies instantly afterward it has fuel but just randomly the security system started acting up i tried putting my key in driver door and turning it...


Try using the key-less entry to disarm the security. then I think I would get out the test light and look at the A.S.D. (auto shut down) relay in the fuse box under the hood. Verify it is not ignition switch. This relay gives the injectors, coil,and other things power.

2004 Dodge stratus randomly stops working, acts like lack of fuel. If it sits for a day it will start again and be fine for undertermined amount of time.


Could be many things, But id first check and change fuel filter. It may be fuel pump but hopefully not. If you get a check engine light when it acts up, Id hook it to a computer and get codes..
