It shuts down like the engine is not getting fuel, almost like the security system shuts down the fuel system. I have replaced the crank shaft senor and that did not solve the problem. There seem to be a low resistance across the ignition wires, could that cause this problem? Any suggestion of what the problem could be.

    The repair shop recommended replacing the Craft shaft sensor and the Ignition wiring harness that those repairs have not resolved the problem. Seems to be tied to the Security systems because when you lock the car and unlock it with the key as you do when the alarm becomes engaged that clears to problem. Can you disable the alarm system and the car still function?
