    Unhappy Xli 2008; Engine randomly dies while driving and wont start.

    AoA,

    Mine is Corolla Xli (2008), with tracker (C-Track) and CNG option (I am using petrol since it got cheaper)...

    Problem is that 3 days ago in morning after driving 15kms my car engine stopped suddenly while I was slowing down to turn into a street. I tried to start but it would crank only. All lights were showing on dashboard (including check engine light). Called tracker company but they said nothing wrong from their side & advised to get checked by electrician. When I was able to get technician after about an hour or so the car started normally...

    After it all went normal until next day when again the engine stopped while I was slowing down. I checked and found ignition current is missing while cranking. Tried to reset by removing and reconnecting battery terminal. Engine started. I went to tracker office they kept the car and said fault is resolved, faulty components are replaced. But while returning back from tracker office the car stopped again and wont start. Started again by resetting battery terminal...

    Can anyone help me on this..........??

    There will be no error codes if CEL was not on so there was no point scanning it. You can try removing battery terminals as it won't cost you anything but i don't think it will solve the problem.
    Check connections and wiring of these three thing. IACV, Camshaft sensor and Crankshaft sensor. It can be bad tracker connection too.

    Ignition current missing means either main relay or crank senor got defective and stop working after getting heated up.It could be happened because of wrongly connected tracking device.
