Hi there thanks and sorry for the delay Iam having connection issues todayOk if the vehicle has lost sll electrical power and cut out when driving then the fault is caused by a faulty alternator
This constantly charges the battery when the engine is running
When this fails the battery doesn't receive any charge and the vehicle then uses what is left in the battery before the voltage drops do low below 8 volts that the electrics in the vehicle shut downTo resolve this issue you will need to have the alternator replaced
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue going forward please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you
