Thanks for the replies. Things have gotten worse. I took a chance on a very local errand yesterday, and got there ok. On the way back the engine stopped while driving. Someone gave me a boost, but it conked out again after a few blocks. I called my emergency service this morning, and with a boost was able to get it from a meter on the corner to my house. Did I mention that when the motor stops the clock and instrument panel turns off, and don't go on again when you turn the key until the motor catches, even though the starter turns over. Possible electrical, possible short, or maybe as suggested the coil? Any other suggestions?
