and we have lights... oops...

Postby lil red wagon [OP] » June 17th 2012, 4:34am

So, I have something interesting going on with the van recently. Over the last couple of months, i have had a few times where all the warning lights on the gauge cluster come on while i'm driving. It lasts about a second, and it seems the van loses power when this happens. However, it doesn't stall out, the lights all go off, and it goes right along like nothing happened. Any ideas?

It sounds like an alternator issue. The alternator might be failing or about to fail.
