Main relay needs to be repaired. Simple fix thats why no one replied to you.

Re: help!!!!!!!!!! car turns off while driving!

Agreed! Main relay (under dash) is notorious for this. Just about drove me to drink: I'd stop for gas, shut off engine, then have to crank it for five minutes until it lit. Sometimes not. Intermittant as heck. Heard about the relay problem: seems the solder joints crack. Told my mechanic about it (after he spent a week with no luck- fortunately, he didn't charge!). He pulled the relay and found four broken solder joints. After he repaired it, I pulled it (and with the aid of a 10X magnifier), and found two he'd missed. No problem since!

+1 Main relay. Open it up and use a magnifying glass to see the fractured solder joints. Re-solder those joints and you will be good to go.
