SOURCE: Occassionally my dash gauges and radio will loose power.

There are two things that could cause this problem. You either have a bad ground somewhere(like the grounding strap that goes from the engine to the frame, the one going from battery to frame, or something similer, or your alternator is going out. It sounds like the voltage regulator in the alternator is going out(will cause the computers to make the instruments do funky things)which would require alternator replacement. The difficult part of it, is unless it is doing it continuously, you won't be able to bench test the alternator and get reliable results. I suggest that you check the grounds, to rule them out, and look at a replacement alternator if that fails to fix the problem.

SOURCE: 2004 Ford Explorer XLT.....The radio and gas gauge quit

The check engine light will represent fault codes that the computer is sensing. Have a mechanic, or go to your local auto parts superstore and have them scan for the fault codes. This will at least give you an idea about some of your problems.

1996 jeep grand cherokee- while driving all gauges stopped working and all dash light were flickering on and off. then all went back to normal but since then passenger side windows and door locks will not...


I would start by scanning the engine control module and the body control module and the antilock brake control module and the transmission control module and the airbag module to see if there are any fault codes that indicate a loss of power to the modules. It may tell me which circuit malfunctioned. If that does not give me a clue, I would then start to diagnose the window circuits by first checking for power at the master switch and move to the rest of the power window system from there.

As for fuses or where to start...I think you should probably read these articles before doing anything:

Where's The Fuse?

What Else Could Be Wrong?

My 88 vw fox wagons oil light consantly flickers. I just changed the oil and oil filter. Any wag I can make this stop. And the speedometer is reading wrong and the dash lights don't work and fuel gauge...


I think that you should check fuses for the gauges. But it might be a bad wire shorting out. I also have seen these cars to blow all the dash lights before. As far as the oil light there is a sensor that goes into the oil pan or the block that may be dirty or shorting out.

possible crank position sensor fault .It's also likely that some of the dash gauges work intermittantly, or not at all.

Flickering lights, gauges and radio


Sounds like a wiring issue, it's actually hard to diagnose without being there, with that many things happening all at once I'd guess a possible problem with the underhood relay/fuse box. On older vans they sometimes short out inside.To be sure you might want to go to your dealer, for about an hours labour they should be able to diagnose it properly. They will only go as far as you tell them to.
If I can be of any more help please ask..
Good Luck.
