If car starts and lose the power afterwards it might be alternator problems or fuel supply (filter, pump, injectrors) or ignition (plugs, wiring/distributor). If lights come on but car is dead it is starter or incorrect timing (brocken timing belt (chain)) or fuses.
Hope that helps
Good Luck

Thinhking its the ecm


The ecm does not control the dashboard lights. I would start by checking battery, alternator and starter connections. Also, Gm uses aluminum wire and to check for white corrosion on ends of heavy gage cable.

Sounds like a fuel problem. you could try hooking a pressure gage up to your check valve on your fuel rail see if you are losing fuel pressure. maybe a fuel filter or something thats just one thing it could be out of a bunch of things something you may want to try. does is start bucking or anthing or just straight lose all power and die?

1997 Dodge Grand caravan, problems started with intermittant loss of gages & flashing lights on the buttons for a/c & recirc. it then progressed to the loss of my hi beams, cabin lights, remote...


mcdevito75 here, Sounds like you have a problem under the dash with the main harness wireing as it comes thru the dash board from the firewall or at a connection under the dash board. Or if your dash board is controlled by a circuit board. Best Bet, Have an electrical auto shop in your area take a look, many things to take apart under the dash and you may make the problem worse with out realizeing it, no matter how versed you are with cars.

Dash lights go on and off, odometer needle drops to zero, races back up, rpm needle drops and races back up as does the gas gage needle. car does not lose power. dash light module???


its a loose connection, i've dealt with it in my truck for years, you can remove the entire dash to check all connections and change lights but its a HUGE job., if you can live with it, otherwise take it to a pro to have it done.

1996 nissan maxima car won't start unless you push it. I went to autozone to test battery they said it was fine. He said it was the starter. now when I am driving the radio will go off and along with that...


Sounds like a bad wire somewhere. I dont know with your particular vehicle, but some vechiles wiring leads into eachother for alot of things. If a wire is being grounded out this could cause the loss of the electrical units connected on the wire. Just a guess, but I would check with a mechanic to find out if there are electronics in your vehicle that work off of eachother. Explain what things come off and on when you lose the power to what you listed. You use the word random, so my guess would most likely be a wire being grounded out somewhere to cause this. Hope this helps!!

My speedo has not been working today all the other gages went out and after about 4 hours started working again


It sounds like the connection to your dash gage may have gone lose do to everyday vibration. If everything was running fine without any check engine or service engine soon, then it's your dash gage. Before your start your truck and the key'sare in the run possition, your gages should move up then down checking it's self. Keep a eye on that. Good luck. easy fix dubble check connection.
