2004 Murano, 130,000 + miles, rebuilt CVT replaced by dealer when original unit failed in warranty period at about 70,000.

Car turned off and restarted- reversed engaged normally. After*****( later same day), pulling into driveway, nearly stopped, car suddenly lost all power and shut off- on its own. Was able to be restarted right away.

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

When you say the car suddenly lost power, do you mean like electrical power?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
electrical but the engine stopped running also while the care was in drive. Car restarted immediately with turn of the key after came to stop and put back in park- electrical power returned in full-like the car was hit by an electromagnetic field from a solar flare.

Sorry, not interested in doubling the bill with a phone call. Looks like just need to drop it off at the dealer and get a loaner.

This could all be due to a Alternator issue.

That is ok.. We can continue this way if you like.

If you get a surge of low battery voltage cause the Alternator is not charging it can certainly affect Transmission operation and engine operation

Do you have a Volt meter?
