Consumer 2004 Avalanche sometimes will not start and stalls while driving. ** answer required*** the dealer attempted to solve the problem but failed several times. The consumer's wife experienced this problem while traveling at high speeds, losing the power brakes and power steering. On another incident, the consumer's wife was turning into an intersection with a sufficient amount of time and the vehicle stalled again, nearly causing a serious accident.
