Has anyone heard of a crank shaft position censor being the reason for my 2005 randomly shutting down? I am aware of the fuse block and ignition switch being possible problems. But now I have been told the crank shaft position censor could also be in the mix.
Thank you for your help

Not on an SSR but I have had them go bad on other GM vehicles and in my cases they did not shut down but rather when I went to start them they would not fire. They would crank and spin over but no ignition spark.

Fuse box problem, SSR will run for 45 minutes, shut down, cool, start and run 45 minutes.

I shipped a repaired fuse box this morning, number 5 this month.

Go to SSR HOW to LIBRARY.

Don't know what year your R is. Fuse box is 05/06. They also have battery cable being lose at Starter Solenoid.

Do some reading.

Welcome to the family Pam. :00000732:
Of course the crank position sensor can fail like any other part, but I don't remember anyone claiming that happened, keeping in mind if someone has a problem with their SSR this is where they look for help.
The other thing is a failure of that sort of part is very rarely intermittent.
Is it setting codes when it happens? Knowing the codes set would be a big help.
