Default Truck shuts off and shows theft light

I have a problem with a 2002 Edge with the Vulcan V6. When it started it would shut off when I hit a big bump in the road. I live outside Houston so that happens a lot. When it shuts off the Theft light comes on for about a second, then the normal key on ready to start lights come on and the Theft light goes off and I can restart it.

Recently it has started happening a lot and it is random, no pothole required. Any suggestions?

Default Re: Truck shuts off and shows theft light

I'd start with checking battery connections - including all grounds, then pull the lower dash cover that gives you access to the steering column area and make sure all the connections are engaged into their locking positions, check for damaged harnesses or ones that were tapped into for aux options like radar detectors, alarms, audio add-ins.

Then I would check the GEM module and the PAT's system
