evrytime i run over a significant pot hole the car goes off and i have to put it on neutral to start it back on,i thought it was my ignition module connector that was loose as it was a little loose the screw that holds the wiring harness in place.i tighten it but still i got the same problem when i go over pot holes.stupid car gos off.please i would appreciate if anybody knows this problem and knows the fix.cuz this car does that to me on the highway too and thats dangerous.i dont want somebody to rear end my car and possibly get kill or injured in an accident.thanks.

    start with battery connections and grounds. look at the fuel pump connector at the fuel tank as well. make sure the pcm connectors are good and tight
