Been there, drove me nuts along with ever shop it was ever at. It's actually why the last owner sold it to me so cheap, she almost got hit in an intersection and was afraid to drive it after that cuz noone could figure it out. No codes, just dies and then starts right up. ONE out of the thousand times it happened to me it tripped the crank sensor error code so i started there. Replaced the sensor and problem went away so i thought great... but came back during a hard left one day a month later. So I knew it had to do with something in that general area and started poking around. The crank sensor plugs into the jeep's wiring harness right under the center console. as the wire goes forward in the harness (away from the crank sensor plug and toward the computer) it snakes between several large screws from the factory that hold the center console in the car. One of the screws wore through the wire harness housing over the years and began to short out that wire, causing a no spark condition and stalling the truck. Interestingly enough this only happens as the truck flexes that certain way during a left turn and the harness rubs the screw. Wierd i know but trust me on this one. Taped up the wire, moved the harness over an inch and 2 years later still smooth sailing. Get your truck in the air, feel around for the harness that's rubbing the underside of the floorboard and pull it away from any fasteners that may be wearing through the wires. Good luck

My 97 chrysler lhs stalls when taking corners, why?

Left or right turns? Most stalling issues while taking corners are the result of wiring rubbing somewhere on the engine/body causing shorts. Check all wiring looms/harness for signs of rubbing that may result in a stalling situation. If stalling on both left and right turns, possible fuel pump problem ( especially if you run a low fuel level ). I have also seen stalling from the ignition coil caused by its internal oil level to be low

Tahoe stalls when turning

I had this exact problem and a fuel induction service fixed the problem immediately! The fix was recommended by my local Chevy dealer. I have had to do the service 2 other times since (when my truck starts to shows signs of stalling increasing over time to actually stalling) and each time it fixes the problem. Only costs $125 at Chevy!
