Since the car loses all electrical, nothing electrical has power for 30 seconds. That rules out the ignition switch to blame. The only thing which can cause a car to have nothing powered, but be intermittent would be the under hood fuse box internally faulty. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------On your screen at the top you should see a rating 1-5 stars and a green submit button. Please make sure to select one and press submit. I am not compensated by the website unless a customer rates. Rating only pays me from the deposit you have already made, it does not charge you more, nor close the post. Also all follow ups are free and welcome.Thanks Chris

So how can i solve this issue.. Do u think it might be the controller
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.
Based on what you have told me, I believe a replacement fuse box is needed.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The whole fuse box.. Or some fuses inside

Again i will repeat what goes on.I am driving at a speed of 100km/hr.. The car sometimes cuts electricity while on a high speed and then after 30 seconds it gets back to normal and the speed is the same. This doesn't happen frequently.

I have posted what I believe to be wrong. I will opt out and see if anyone else has another opinion. Best of luck.
