'03 Cavalier Engine Dies Out But Restarts . . .

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  '03 Cavalier Engine Dies Out But Restarts . . .

I hope someone out there might be able to shed some light on this problme for me. I have an '03 Cavalier, with a manual transmission. Last January, while driving one very cold winter night and when coming to a stop, it died out on me. The dash and all the idiot lights lit up, as well as the power steering locking up. It restarted right away, only to die again at the next stop I came to. Started and stopped fine the next day, but took it to the dealership anyway. They scanned it and couldn't find anything wrong with it, other than that the computer chip needed to be 'upgraded.' Happened one other time in September, then was fine, only to happen again the other night. A few hours later, it will restart and run fine, but I simply need to depend on my car, and feel that I can't. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and/or may know what might be causing it.

Thanks for your help.
