Question about 2000 Chrysler LHS
Noticed the dash lights, radio,and clock lights flick/dimming for about 2 miles, then car lights engine and everything shut down and restarted, Then car shut down and I had nothing, no headlights, no hazards, completely dead in the water. 10 min later everything came back for about a mile. I have basic mechanical knowledge, and my car has all the bells and whistles, and I have a lot of relays and fuses.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Your alternator is starting to show its age. If you get it tested you will likely find that under load it is not putting out 14+Volts. It is probably closer to 12 and it's time to retire it or get it rebuilt. If the battery is the same age as the alternator get it tested as well with a "load test" to make sure it is still healthy. Hope this helps.

well this is a very common problem for these cars and there have been two different fixes that i have found. first is what sounds like is going on with your and the instrument cluster is bad and starting to fail because of a faulty circuit board and will need to be replaced if that is the issue.
now the other one is the vehicle body module and when that goes bad it will not respond to bangs on the dash and usually is just no response from the gauges.
one other thing i have found is a bad plug to the instrument cluster.
either way it comes down to a bad connection and if it is the cluster or body module they have to be replaced , but if it is the harness it can be pin pointed by a wiggle test. remove the cluster but live it plug it to the harness and while it is running wiggle the harness and see if it effects the cluster. if so remove the plugs from the back of the cluster and inspect the pins inside the plugs for damage , corrosion and broke or spread out pins. if any are bad they will need to be repaired and that should take care of the issue.
but until it is diagnosed you won't know.
good luck and if you any more question or help please ask.

There is a fuse box under the hood with a power wire running from the battery to this box. Check for corrosion around this box and make sure the connection is good. Had a similar problem everthing checked out good, then found this wire had a terriable connection, check this out and clean the post for the connection.

SOURCE: after car warms up it
After it stalls, open the gas cap. Does it pull in air? If so the tank vent is plugged up. Most of these were on the top of the tank where mice and dirt collect around them. You have to drop the tank to get to them.
