My 2002 Toyota Camry XLE V6 (115k miles) stalls once every 4 months (happened thrice in the last year) or so when I’m braking & bringing the care to a complete stop.
The check-engine light comes on just before the car completely stops. The steering wheel feels locked. Putting it back in parking, turning off & turning it back on doesn’t help. The car doesn’t start. After 10-15 minutes, If I put the key in, turn it on & try to turn the steering wheel while turning it on, it turns back up & runs without any issues for the next few months.
I’ve taken the car to 3 different mechanics (including a Toyota dealership mechanic) & they tell me that the car is in great condition (I’ve done a lot of preventive maintenance on the car). They can’t find any error codes & they checked everything but can’t find any issues.
What could be the problem? Appreciate any insights.
