accelorometer problems

when we run the accelerometer the program starts up, but after a few seconds it stops running. If anyone has a solutions to this problem that would be awesome.

How do you know that “it” stops running? Accelerometers are pretty basic; they do nothing differently after the tenth second than they did the fifth. It’s probably something in your program messing up. Try posting that and people can have a look at it.

Of course, it’s also possible something is overheating but that’s not very likely.

What language are you using? I had a similar problem in java when, for a gyro, I specified a PWM port instead of a connection on the analog breakout.
