I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am V6. The first problem I had is when I would put in park and say run into the store it would just die (only happened a couple of times) and I didn't think much of it.

After that was replaced the car ran fine for another week when I started to leave work it would turn over but not

After changing the starter and alternator and installed a new ignition switch my 1997 Nissan p/u started up fine. Drove it around town, stopped, turned off the engine and it started again right away.
