Help. When I am driving down the street, all of a sudden the car shuts off. If wait about 45 minutes it will start again. Any ideas? 2000 focus ZX3 [dunno]

Start checking your battery terminals and the connection points of the wires connected to the battery. Follow both down, the positive goes to the starter, the negative goes to the engine block. Most likely your problem is the negative cable if it is at this point in the charging system. Next check out the plug in wires to the alternator, and the connection of the bolted positive. Remember, disconnect the negative terminal before checking the connections of any positive terminal anywhere on the car.
