Question about 1999 Ford Explorer
When driving at times, my interior lgihts, and CD player shut off. My battery gauge also dropped. Lasted for 5 seconds. Then everything came back on like nothing had happened. New battery in vehicle. Tested alternator, battery, starter, connections, and no corossion at all. Auto Store can't find anything wrong. Everything tested well above average. Charged the battery as well. Tested well over 12v while vehicle shut off, then a day and a half later, down to 10v. Any advice on what this could be? Ignition switch possibly? Thank you.
I would check the ignition switch, they are know for separating and causing issue's like this one, Ford recalled many of them, but the Explorer was not on the list, though it uses the same switch as the recalled cars..
