Hi,the problem sounds like a alternator issue or a loose connection possibly,when the vehicle dies while driving is the ABS light the only light that comes on inside the car?What happens after this occurs and try to restart ?Does the problem seem to happen at night when more electrical components are in use?To you knowledge did the shop test the battery for draws,meaning something in use when the key is off?Is there any aftermarket alarm/ remote starter installed in this car,thanks for your time I'll await your reply,thanks
