Well, I reinsured and retagged, now I want to drive it. Before I parked it, I had no problems at all. Now, when I start the car, it fires right up... no problem at all. But after 2 or 3 minutes of running, whether at idle or driving, the car dies. It's like I have a dead battery. No power at all, no radio, lights, nothing. Then, about 5 or 10 minutes later everything works again (I have full power) and it starts right up and drives fine. I have NO idea what is going on. Computer problem?

So to recap: Start car, dies and have no power.
Power restored several minutes later and runs fine. Then loses power.

    I just had a thought... coincidentally, I bought a new battery for it a couple months ago. It didn't have this problem before I put in this battery. Is this something a new 'bad' battery could do??
