After driving ocasionally it will not turn back on again and how we determine it won't is because the locks won't lock with the button. The lights on the dash won't come on. We have taken it to a mechanic that has taken us for a ride. Last time he said to bang on the fuse box and it worked but today I even took the fuse box out and looked for loose cables and nothing. Seems like there is a relay that gets stuck. Which one could it be?
I have interchanged them by their specifics but still won't do anything.

I recently took my 2005 GMC Canyon(87,000 miles)2.8L 4 Cylinder to the shop to be put on a computer that pointed to my throttle body because,out of the blue it loses power,idles very rough,and the engine light saying reduced power and traction default comes on when it starts acting up.I replaced the throttle body and it is still doing the same thing it did before putting a brand new on.I can pull over and turn it off and back on several times then it starts running normal again,but not for long til it starts acting up again.No one has no idea as to what could be wrong.Please help!Anyone out there have any idea's?I would greatly appreciate it.

Is there a history of this problem and is there a recall?

The crankcase position sensor and brakelight switch were diagnosed and replaced and I received a bill for 611.00 dollars. Also a relay switch which cost 27 dollars was replaced. The parts totaled 187.00 dollars and labor was 403.00. Was as I over charged?

He wants me to replace the upper and lower radiator hoses and cap, idler and tension pulleys as well. Do you agree so far?
