Died while driving?

1996 auto 209k. Had it plugged in and started up like normal, driving to work and just died with no warning. Battery light came on and radio kept playing. Put it in neutral and started right up. What would cause this? Never happened before.

The two major causes are a CPS failure, and an interruption in the power to the PCM. Did you turn the key back before trying to restart it, or did you just turn it directly from RUN to START? Did you happen to notice if the WTS light came on AFTER it stalled, but BEFORE you turned the key?

The only light that came on was the battery light. I put it in neutral and started right up. I did not cycle the ignition switch as I was still moving.

+1 CPS. Ford or International ONLY. If it fixes it, buy another one to keep in the glove box.
