    02 Deville just dies randomly

    I have a 2002 deville, 106k miles if important. But I've had my car die on me twice in the past two months. The first in early July when I dropped my friend off at home, as I was turning it died. Still had full power, but engine just took a dump and had no power steering. Now tonight I was approaching a diagonal road and before I turned it did the same thing, and I had to pull over,put in park and turn it off. Along with opening my door to turn off all power. Then it starts back up fine. What causes this? I like to make long trips but if this can happen, I'd rather not risk it.
