SH Randomly Dying.. need advice!

sup yall.. I own a salvaged 98 SH with 135,000 miles on the odoM.. i bought it Months ago as a project to work on myself and learn how to work on vehicles with like 129,000 on the odom.. Anyways.. Everything is going well its got AEM shortram intake, DC 4-2 Headers (no carb # haha) SKunk2 Adjustable Coils, new front end (Fenders, bumper, hood), i threw on some halo's with blue HID headlamps, SKunK2 exhaust tip, and neuspeed shortshift Kit installed.. ordered a new Silla Radiator coming in the mail with Megan Shortshifter right now.. getting Magnaflow cat cuz caliFornia's OBDII is a bitch (Smogs and Refferees) the old owner replaced the stock cat with a early 90's jeep cat (odd).. ok ok the thing thats really Killing Me is this annoying random dying.. When it dies My ignition light (Green keylight on the dash) will flash until I take the key out.. when I take the Key out right away it blinKS three times.. Duh its oFF right? ha My ABs and SRS lights stay on for bought 5 seconds then iM sitting on the side of the side of the road waiting For when My lude wants to drive again sometimes it Will start right back up.. but its summer time right now and im sittin there in 96 weather no AC waiting for the daMned thing to start back up the AC is rewarding once it starts again though.. Ive been told Many things.. Fuel Injectors (Got Flushed a Month ago), Ground Problems on Engine chassis, Alternator (But its Fine), TherMostat, etc. I wanna fix this ProbleM so bad.. what if im hella smashing and My car dies then no power steering? has anyone had this experience or know someone that has and it has been repaired? its a real turn off for my prized lude.. any suggestions (Serious Suggestions) will be great and appreciated.. Just trying to be steered in the right direction.. or at least a start ya Know?

Re: SH Randomly Dying.. need advice!

i would check all the main harnesses and plug ins. does it do it when you hit a bump or just when its hot? or does it sometimes cut out then cut back on? while your still going down the road?

Is it like that since you got the car? If no code then you may got a clogged cat which could cause the car power lost and stalling. You have any cel code?
