Nissan Sentra 2003 stops suddenly while driving, will restart after 20 minutes or so Sign In

Hi,

I have a 2003, Nissan Sentra GS 1.6L, for the last two days I had the same occurence happen twice.

After driving for an hour or so, at low speed, car suddenly stops dead. When i trie to restart, starter cranks the engine, but car wouldnt start.

First time, after 10 minutes or so, I tried to restart again, car started just fine and drove just fine.

Second time (second day), car did the same, and car wouldnt start right away again, and this time it did restart after 20 minutes or so.

I suspect electrical issue, but i am no technician. What do you guys think ?

Thanks in advance

Check engine light? Any codes stored? If so, what are the numbers?

Yes, when problem appeared I believe Check Engine Light went on, followed by the other two emergency lights (battery/oil). Once car restarted, no more lights at all. I dont have OBD2 tools to look at error codes

Head on over to Autozone. They can scan it for you. Write down any code numbers.

When it doesn't want to start is when you want to figure out what is missing. Follow this:
