hi vehicle shuts down at speed over 60 kmph
We are not very good at crystal ball diagnostics here, so best you try a little harder at providing more information.

What's the mileage?
Service history?

What fault finding have you or anyone else tried?

Was there any symptoms such as knocking or any other noise before its shuts down at 60 kmh?

Does it start up easily?

Is there any error codes?

Is the "Check Engine Lamp" on?

6,779 km is extremely low for a 2005 model.

1) What engine, V6, I4, 3.5L, 2.4L, ...........? - put that in your signature as previously requested.

2) OK, serviced last month, but what it the service history?

3) What pressure switch wire was fused together?

4) When was the injectors, pump, solenoid, switch and fuel filter changed, ...... before the incident, or after, ......... on what basis were these parts changed?

5) If the check engine lamp is on, what's the error codes?

6) When last was the timing belt changed - has the timing been checked?

Service history is what diagnosis and repairs and who and where have been performed on the vehicle. If the check engine light is on it has stored a hard trouble code. It needs to be plugged in and codes retrieved. It's a 2005 with only 6,779 miles on it? That would basically be a brand new vehicle. I'm confused by what you mean by pressure wires. When it shuts down does it start right back up, need to sit awhile before restarting or is it dead?
