Default 1999 3.2 TL problem

In the last 2 weeks, as I have been driving, all of a sudden the car
has just shut off. The first time it happened I just pulled over
stopped, engaged the started and the car started as if nothing had
happened. It happened again today, the difference being that I was on
the highway. The car shut off, the maintenance light came on, then
after about 1-2 seconds, the car gained electrical power again, and
everything was fine.
I have noticed in the last few weeks that on occasion when I turn the
key to accessories to listen to the radio, nothing will happen until I
turn the key off and then on again.

Is it time to replace to ignition key, or should I be looking at
something else?

Thanks,
Steve
Saskatoon, Canada

Your car is covered under a Safety Recall having to do with the ignition
switch.

Visit your local dealer. Quote TSB number 02-031. Ask if the fix has been
applied to your car.

What Tegger said, and don't cut in front of any oncoming cement trucks.
It can die at the most inopportune times.
