Have the dealer check the key module.

I saw that might be a possibility and the culprit might be a heavier than necessary key fob chain...school principals have lots of keys...she has "lightened the load" so to speak and sudden engine shutdown hasn't reoccurred. Thanks for response...dealer is next stop if it happens again.

In my highschool driver's saftey class they showed us a video where people were hideiously damaged by seemingly innocent things. One of which were your keys in your ignition. Since then I have always driven with my car key seperate or easily detatchable from the rest of my keys. Wife always made fun of me until one day the car randomly shut off on her for the same reason you wife ran into. She also now carries her car key seperate from the rest of her keys. she has it on a small ring that clips to a carabiener with the rest of her keys.

My toyota prius does not require inserting a key. Why do other cars. Including my new Patriot, cling to obsolete mechanical system?

because its a "feature" i bet they'll switch over in the near future because my new compass all i have to is quickly turn the key and release, the car will continue to turn over on its own until it has started.

My Dads 2007 Maxima doesn't require a key to be inserted, though it has one. It just needs to be in proximity. However it should be noted it is already failing. You can be sitting in the car with key in pocket and it won't start every time. Sometimes the module locks in place and theres nothing you can do.

The keyless ignition key needs a new battery every other year.
