If Its Not One Thing Its Another...

Hey everyone, hows it been? I havent been on here in a long time. I finally got the ball joints and spindles replaced on my 95 Astro last week. Its been out of commission for a year and its nice to be able to drive it again.

Iam though, facing another problem. This time is electrical, which out of all I dread. Heres whats happening, while Im driving if I use my dome lights or my high beams everything shuts off for a second, including the engine, and the check engine light blinks. When its idling if I do the same stuff it just dies completely and I have to start the van again. It did do this while driving without turning anything on once, but never did it again. Im not sure if its my battery, alt, or something else. Hopefully someone can give me a guesstimation on whats going on. Thanks :confused:

Check your grounds. You could try using jumper cables as a test lead to see if that helps.
