    Anyone had this happen before? Any idea what it could be?

    When driving into work today, I went to make a right hand turn into the parking lot and my truck just COMPLETELY shut off. I'm talking, steering wheel locked (no, not even like just the power steering was lost - LOCKED), all electronics in truck went off, and it came to a complete halt. The small screen in the cluster popped up with a bunch of things, and I only caught a "low oil" light.

    Scared the piss out of me. Tried to restart it immediately and nothing worked. Second time I tried it fired right up.

    I checked the oil level and its perfect.
    Checked for codes - none.
    Checked for any obvious electrical signs like fuses, battery cables rubbing / frayed, etc. and nothing. Everything looks perfect.

    Anyone have any ideas? I'm baffled, especially with no codes. The only thing I could think is maybe the lock cylinder is fucked up since the steering wheel locked? Is this a common thing?

    Sorry no help here.

    I will tell you the story of my 2003 Cobra stalling on me one time though. Went to take off from a light and it just died as soon as I started moving. It took 3 times of cranking over to get it to fire and I had to give it gas to stay running. Limped it into a nearby lot and looked it over, everything looked fine. It started back up just fine and has run perfect ever since- that was 10 years ago.

    Battery defnitely isn't it. It's a year old Odyssey and voltage is good / charging system is good. It's a 2013 Roush with about 70,000 miles.

    I did some searching and it looks like it could be the fuse 27 thing. I have the kit at home to do it (hasn't been done yet). About to bust out the electrical diagrams and see what's tied to that fuse besides the fuel pump as I can't just see the fuel pump cutting out killing EVERYTHING in the truck, unless its shorting out to ground.

    Fuse 27 i'm betting. All the warning lights come on because ECU thinks truck is running but its not, that why u get low oil press light.

    Its the fuse 27 arcing out, best to get the relocation kit and shift it asap before it melts your fuse panel.
