98 SPORT 4L CUTS OUT WHILE DRIVING

So my future Daughter-in-law... got this 98 Jeep SPORT.. with the 4L straight 6...gettin jerked over by the local garage in Lebanon Pa.. SO she is driving and it cuts out.. gets towed.. they replace the starter!!!! what the hell that has to do with cutting out who knows... and some other stuff.. $800+ later it is still cutting out... its there now.. at this "garage"...so my ? to the venerable readers of this page.. ?based on the very little .. and very emotional .. info I have been able to supply (from hundreds of miles away).. is there any class problem we should be looking out for???
Only clue is when it cuts out the radio dies too... sounds like a complete electrical disconnect that shuts down the Fuel Injecton and everything else.... much appreciated.

Check ALL grounds,

My work truck was doing the same thing, it ended up being a fualty ground cable from one of the batteries (it had two batteries). We replaced the ground, and havent had any problems since.

and find a different garage to take it to.

2nd vote for checking all grounds and major connections to battery, engine, frame, body, and relay. Good Luck! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Does the dash connector problem shut down the engine too?
