While driving 2006 impala down the road, car tries to stall lights interior and exterior flash, but car never stalls and regains power immediately?


You have a power wire rubbing the chassis somewhere in the harness that when it slightly touches metal the voltage drops and causes the flickering and will make the computer act up. Finding exactly where the short is occurring will be a tedious and time consuming inspection of the wiring.

Car not starting, battery charged by son's car, still wont' start.


More than likely its your ignition switch going or gone bad. Ok, here's what you do, turn the key to the on position but DO NOT CRANK, let the key stay in this position until the security light stops flashing (takes 5 to 10 minutes) then turn the key off and crank it immediately after. If your car cranks then you will need to replace your ignition switch ($120 to $160). Hope this information helps someone. .

My 05 civic headlights flicker only while im driving and the car has a jerking motion then after that the airbag light comes on, goes off then we start the circle again of all three issues


For the headlamp to flicker and airbag light comes on and off, this would be the same as if you turn the ignition on and off real fast, so the problem reside in the ignition switch making intermittent contact,

Car turns all the way off while driving, including headlights, starts right back up, but drives like it has bad gas, (surges), but that's not the problem


Your right, bad gas may not be the problem, but have you checked and changed the fuel filter and possibly the fuel pump? Typically if your fuel filter is going out, the cars' computer will default out and tell the engine to shut down.

All warning lights & dials on dash flip on and off continuiously?


I would suspect that the alternator is not charging sufficiently.

Be sure that it is charging or you risk a break down if the battery dies.

it sounds like one of three things are happening
1.your battery has adead cell in it and does not have enough cracking amps

2. your alternater isn't charging your battery enough

3. your starter is worn out causing it to need more amps to turn over

You can go to your local auto parts store and have them test your battery and charging system usually for free. if the battery and charging system checks out then pull the starter off and have it tested.

Have your alternator checked. Most auto supply places do this at no charge. Multiple dashboard warning lights usually indicate alternator problems.
