The engine shut off while driving at 70 mph.
Pulled off the road to stop the car. Restarted engine and drove to destination with no problems.
No codes.
Full tank of gas.

I purchased a Nissan Frontier a few years back and on two or three occasions it would shut off or sputter during a turn. Fortunately It wasn鈥檛 in heavy traffic. I decided what ever it was, it had to do with killing the power. I started with the battery cables. Positive side looked great. The negative cable ran to the inside fender wall where a one inch an insulated section was clamped to the fender. From the fender clamp it ran over to the engine block. That's where I located the problem. The cable lug that was bolted to the block had a clean break at the cable end. The small clamp at the fender well was all that was providing a ground connection. I replaced the cable lug and no more random shutdowns.
