Gauges in my 1998 plymouth neon stopped working when i hit a bump


Sounds like an intermittent loss of power to the instrument cluster to me. Remove the instrument cluster and inspect the electrical connectors on the back of the cluster.

Hi. I have an '02 Hyundai Accent. It has shut off 3 times while I'm driving, with no electrical response. I wait it out and it eventually starts up. For the past few months the instrument panel lights go...


Different areas worth checking in order of seriousness are:

  • loose battery cables/terminals - if they are loose, a bump could temporarily disrupt your connection
  • loose battery - the battery itself may be moving around in it's compartment when you hit a bump or jump on the brakes
  • defective alternator - the alternator gives off several symptoms when it's on it's way out. interference when the radio is on, very slow windshield wipers, dim headlights.
Bring the car to any of the bigger chain autoparts stores that feature a free electrical test. They could rule out a bad alternator or possibly narrow down what you should do next.

Hit a bump and lost all motor elec


There is a loose wire or plug somewhere in your Engine Compartment. Check the Battery and Starter wires and make sure they are tight and are not broken or corroded.

Blower for heat and air doesn't come right on.


Not likely. It may be a worn switch or the fuse or relay may be loose in their sockets. Check the blower motor area for loose connections or loose ground connection.

When i hit a bump the car sputters but stays on and the radio will turn off and the digital instrument panel resets


Check your battery & cable connections- including ground connections. You likely have a loose connection or short that joggles when you hit a bump. Fix it before it fixes you.

My 2003 ford super duty loses power to the electrical devices, gauges , radio, odomeder, wipers..when i hit a bump


Likely to find a loose connection to the dash harness, turn on the devices that fail when hitting bumps, and grab the harness and jiggle to make concern appear.  If so, trace to weak connection point.
