[img]smileys/smiley7.gif[/img]I have a small Vitek engine--gets great gas mileage. The engine dies sometimes at a stop sign though, especially if the car is in neutral.


I have noticed that the anti-theft red indicator comes on just before
the engine dies. Does anyone know if the indicator light means the
anti-theft system is killing the ignition??

Other times, as I am moving and I shift, say, from 2nd to 3rd, I see
the anti-theft indicator light up as the gear shift passes through
neutral.

A dealership has checked the car on the computer yesterday. They saw some brief drops in voltage. Who knows what kind of repairs I am in for!!
