car turns off in middle of driving..?

so i was driving down a freeway in edmonton canada at about 80km/h.. uhh . yea 45-50mph? not sure. but freeway speed-limit. and all of a sudden my car just shut off in the middle of the freeway.. when is shut off the check engine light flashed for a milisecond and turned back off. i pulled over to the side, tried to restart my car. it turned over, started, and then after a second turned off again, this time the check engine didnt flash. tried a third time and the car started, and has been working fine for the past 2 days since this happened. yesterday, after having put over 100miles on it since it shut off the check engine light flashed on, but heres the catch. i cant scan my check engine light because of a immobilizer-delete chip i put in my ecu when i lost all my keys and honda wanted $2000.. im suspecting a bad ground but may be wrong.. any suggestions? thanks in advance

Check the connection at the (-) terminal @ the battery.
Mine wasn't tight on even though it looked like it was...my freaking Lude shut off in the middle of Interstate 495 in the rain at night <---that was the problem.

Re: car turns off in middle of driving..?

when i had my mustang i had just installed hid kit into it turns out the ground wire for it it wasnt good so that caused the car to randomly shut off on me the problem was that where i had the ground there was too much paint on the car so it wasnt catching it rite.......

if your car restarted it probably won't be the ICM.
