Hi all

I posted a few months ago requesting assistance and advice re: timing belt replacement on my Triton. Thanks to many people's willingness to share their experience I have completed the project successfully.:)

Unfortunately, after a few weeks of basking in the pleasure of a successful timing belt change, while driving at approx 60km ph, the vehicle suddenly cut out - as well as showing no display lights on dashboard. After trying the immobliser and ignition key a number of times the engine started. This happened three times in one day and on the third the battery did not have enough power to turn the engine so I had to be towed home.

After checking all terminals, ground wires and a new battering, the engine is still cutting out suddenly. I am going to investigate the relays tomorrow - does anyone have advice or experience with a similar issue? I am not sure if it is a fuel or electrical problem or both, and if so what would be the cause?

Any constructive advice would be appreciated.
Thanks
