Engine cuts out during high speed cornering.

The car accelerates like crazy in the straight line. However, if I hard accelerate in a sweeping turn, the engine will cut out and the check engine light will come on for about one second, I'll let off the throttle, and the car will continue like nothing happened. When I check with an SD2, no codes appear.
Has anyone ever heard of anything like this??

Before I was allowed to even start the post, the system made me choose either "360" or "430" as part of the title of the thread (??)

In that the SD-2 won't work with a 430, I'll presume that you have a 360. If the check engine light came on, a fault will be stored. There is a menu setting on the SD-2 to retrieve all codes, versus present. Check there...Also, take a look at TCU codes, if she's an F1 car.

Sounds to me like your Inertia Switch is malfunctioning and could possibly be cutting off the fuel because it thinks the car is upside down.

I would bypass the switch and take it on one of those sweeping turns to see if it still cuts out BUT personally I cannot recommend that to you, since in the event you had an accident during the test the fuel will not be cut off as it should.

The part was inexpensive so I purchased one (haven't had time to install it yet). However, your idea of shunting the circuit to test is a great idea!
Thank you.
