2004 Mazda MPV shuts down while driving

I would love a clue about what this could be. I took the car to the dealer and of course it won’t happen for them and all the diagnostic equipment did not show any faults. What happens very randomly, is while I am driving, the car just turns off. Everything goes off. Usually after a left turn or left lane change. It is not an engine stall. Starts right back up every time. Anybody have an idea?

Electrical fault. Perhaps in the ignition switch.

Thanks. I’ll get it checked out.

I having a similar problem with my 2004 MPV. In the beginning it was only when making sharp left turns, but now it is also when driving straight. It is very random and the car does start back up every time. Did you find a solution for this problem? Please let me know. Thanks
