My 2003 Saturn Vue dash lights, headlights, power steering, and radio are randomly turning on and off. What is causing the malfunction? Is this going to be a dealer only fix?

check the battery connections are clean and TIGHT as a loose battery connection would cause these symptoms , check the earth for corrosion etc as well

No check engine, stalls cold start, dies after warm

If you haven't done it already you might have them run it for codes to see if it is showing any. Autozone does it for free too.

Reduced engine light, replaced throttle position sensor, no stalling

Did you have the battery disconnected when you changed the sensor? You may have shorted the new sensor out if you didn't. Anytime you change any sensor, disconnect battery. Dis you adjust the sensor with the battery disconnected. This has to be done also.

I have a 1994 grand cheerokee limited that has the check engine light come on every so often and the rpm start jumping up to 1 and down to a stall sometimes it don't stall. The battery gauge meter starts...

Likely you have a bad connection at the alternator or the alternator has developed an internal short or disconnect.
Have your charging system tested. Some testing is done without regard for the fact that some Jeeps have the regulator incorporated into the computer itself. If the alternator is "full fielded" and checks out as good, that tells you nothing about the regulator.(most times a problem like yours is in the alt though).
A code test (free at most larger parts stores) may show a low charging rate. If so, go right to alt testing.
good luck

Check engine light on and stalls

Some cars have 2 sensors. The oxygen sensor and the outlet sensor. One checks the O2 level when it goes in , the other checks the output levels on the outtake . Usually located on the outake manifold or the pipe itself under the car. past the catalytic converter.
