Lock-up style torque converters can and will keep the engine from turning if the do not release when they are supposed to. I worked as a Service Writer for Pep Boys for 5 years and had a couple cases of travelers coming in saying that when they tried to stop at a stop light the car just jerked and died. They had to restart in neutral and when they tried to put it in drive the car jumped forward and died. In both cases we managed to get them back on the road by disconnecting the power connector for the lockup converter on the side of transmission. This allowed them to finish their trip (albeit without the lock-up feature), and they were able to affect repairs at their home mechanic.
Do the dash lights come on? You might want to check the security system because at times it could be setting the anti theft kill switch, and after waiting a bit it will reset itself.... It could also be a bad ignition switch. Good luck!
SOUND LIKE FAULTY TRANSMISSION TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH SOLENOID.WHAT HAPPENING WHEN YOU COME TO A STOP.WHEN YOUR FOOT PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL THE TRANSMISSION TORQUE CLUTCH SOLENOID SUPPOSE TO UNLOCK TORQUE CONVERTER TO KEEP FROM STALLING THE ENGINE IF NOT THATS WHAT CAUSING THE ENGINE TO STALL OUT.SO HAVE THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH CHECK OUT AND HAVE THE TRANSMISSION SCANNED FOR A TRANSMISSION TORQUE CONVERTER CLUTCH SOLENOID FAULT.
Likely, you have a damaged engine bearing. When there is a problem there it will turn oil pressure light on because bearings keep the pressure inside the crankshaft...It may stop as the bearing overheats and binds, then loosens up a bit allowing a re-start when it gets cooler. Battery sounding dead is likely because the engine is locking up and too difficult for starter to turn. At this point, it is not a do-it -yourself project ...either you need a lower end rebuild or engine replacement.
If it is not passing because monitor is not completed and there are no trouble codes.
Start from cold engine with no more than 3/4 tank of fuel and more than 1/4. Drive it about 25 miles with at least 2 minutes of steady speeds between 35-45 mph and also the same at 50-65 mph.Then make several stop and goes,pausing about 20-30 sec when stopped.
If you turn the engine off before the monitors complete you must go thru a 6 hour cool down cycle before it will try and complete again. Then stop by an Autozone or some place that checks codes for free and have them check it and make sure no codes are stored in memory and the P1000 code has cleared. If it has cleared you should be good to go then. Plus this will make sure that it is not an issue with their inspection machine linking up with your vehicle. The only other problem it may be is if you are loosing the keep alive memory when you shut down your vehicle.That would be fuse 19 (15amp) in the underhood fuse panel.
