I have a 1983 Dodge D150 short bed 318 4bbl motor, automatic trans.
Sometimes with engine running it just shuts off. I have no idea what is causing this.  Has anyone else had this happen? Any suggestions on what would cause this?


Start the engine running at idle -then it shuts it's self off -try to restart DEAD when I crank the key nothing

radio will not work turn signals will not work the only thing that works is the button for the cargo light it lights up and the cargo light will light up...


this is the second time this has happened....

Does the motor fire right back up after it dies? Do you have to wait a while? Are you driving when it shuts down or is it only while at idle?

Could be a lost electrical connection... or a fuel issue.... or a many other number of things

Need more details
