Did you run out of fuel proir to the problem? if so, then you may have sucked up some debris from the bottom of the petrol tank, change the fuel filter as i had the same problem. the way the fuel filter is situated next to the fuel pump if any debris goes thru the line when you stop the debris will block the line.

How can I troubleshoot ignition switch?


If the lights in the dash come on when it dies, then the switch is working. Might want to check for codes. Even if the engine light isn't on. Intermittent problems don't turn the light on, but are stored in history codes. Check the battery to body ground.

Engine dies


if it shuts off while driving down the road. and restarts after 10 minutes, its usually a bad crank sensor that does this. it messes up timing and shuts off fuel supply.

check your plug wires and or coil packs. my wife's car had hesitation problems and dying and when It died the tach always pegged out until you cycled your ignition switch and or attempted a restart.

Ignition Control Module is bad. When the dielectric grease used to mount them gets hard,they overheat and cause you to shut down. Really easy to install(about 10 mins.). I had this happen on two Fords. If you let the engine sit and cool down,they will fire up and run till that part gets hot,then itll die on ya. Auto zone sells this part for around 35 bucks.

Kia dies while driving (dashboard lights dies too)


Mine was doing this when I'd drive over bumpy roads. Noone could figure it out, till someone happened to check my battery cables. One of my battery cables was super loose and everytime I'd hit a bump, it would lose connection for a split second and shut the computer down, thus shutting off my Kia while driving.
Check the cables and make sure the cables are tight and the connections all look good.
