I have a 1998 Dodge Neon, which has started to turn off while driving. I first noticed an issue when the car would turn over, but then make the "I'm not going to start" noise. However, if Ii tried it one or two more times, it would start. Then, I'd notice while I was driving that my radio and heater would shut off for just a couple of seconds (as if the car was turning off) but I would continue driving and everything would turn back on within seconds.
On Friday, I was stopping at a stop light and everything shut off. I was stuck at a red light and my car would not turn on, I couldn't even turn on the hazards and my steering wheel locked up a bit. A friendly stranger pushed my car into a gas station and my parents jumped it and returned it to my driveway. It sat there all day Saturday and then on Sunday, I tried turning on the car again and it turned on with no problem. I was able to drive my car with no issues on all of Sunday and most of Monday but then, on Monday night, I was getting ready to go somewhere and the car started with no issue and then turned off completely again a few seconds later. I have not tried turning on the car since.
My question here is... has anyone heard of this or have an idea as to what could be the issue? Battery is only a year old and AutoZone tested the alternator and said it was fine.
