Souds like a bad short like somthin grounded out up front check your wires up front. It would have to be a main cable check your ground off the battery and the cable over to the alternator!

I have had the same trouble with my 01 4.0 automatic. It has happened 3 or more times in the last yr. I am always just coming to a stop, or taking off from a stop. I can restart it every time, and drive on and not have it occur again for days, months... very random. Has anyone come up with a solution to this strange bug? Thanks
