CSRT died last night and magically came back

So I was driving home last night, it was very rainy and humid. All of a sudden cruising at about 65mph in 6th my caliber dies and wont restart. I pull over and try to get it going again.... all the electrical is still working but when I turn the key nothing happens at all. I couldn't even hear the fuel pump try to turn on.

So I call triple A blah blah blah...... 10 minutes goes by I try it again and it starts up as normal. Drives fine all the way home and got me to work this morning, I babied it, beat on it, and nothing..

So I guess my question is WTF?????

Take it to the stealership and see if they can pull any codes from the ECU, just don't let them re-flash your MS1 back to stock...

Bump,

So my electrics work, but it doesnt try to start. Then if I bump stuff around it starts. There's nothing obvious to me.... Is there a starter relay some where maybe?

Wonder if its a "Mouser hole" issue

the main wiring harness that runs through your drivers side fender might have a cut/short?
