I was riding down the road at about 35-40mph and it just cut off on me. It didnt stutter or jerk, it just shutdown as if I turned it off with the key. I tried to restart it but it wouldnt do anything, no click no nada... even the radio wouldnt power back up. Any ideas as to what it could be? I believe its something electrical because I smelled something burning when I popped the hood. The motor is a "new" reconditioned block from Autozone. that Ive had for about 3mons.

check ur battery cable if its TIGHT
On my brothers 65 impala the positive cable came loose on the starter and grounded off of something and it did the same thing...the cable was completely fucked.melted almost the whole cable.so check your pos. cable and neg. cable for burns or melted areas
