I have a 1999 Astrovan with an electrical problem. Rather regularly, the vehicle lights will dim, gauges swing back and forth, voltage drops low, pretty much everything electrical stops working, and car dies. Let the car sit, runs normal with no hint of issues. I know my way around cars, I am no noob. I completely removed and inspect both battery cables, replaced the positive cable. Cleaned and inspected all connectors, even the ones at the starter. Some wires to starter were spliced and repaired in the past, not sure if they might be the problem, seems as if the wire gauge thinkness is not consistent, but would this cause my problem? Does this year and model van have any common issues consistent with my description of this problem. It is really becoming a common issue now. Any suggestions appreciated.
