Re: [DML] DeLorean died while driving (RPM relay)

I , too, experienced the same thing Andrew did.  Just driving down 
the road, then all of a sudden the engine just died.  It would not 
start.  It turned out to be the RPM replay.  After being towed home, 
and replacing my alternator (which is what I thought went bad), it 
still would not start.  I replaced the RPM relay with the original 
that I kept  It now works fine.
