Question about Cars & Trucks
The van died after the lights came on and the speedometer went haywire
It does not sound like your battary or alternator. BUT:
You take a 12 v0lt test meter and touch the Positive With tthe red probe and Neg with the black. Meter should read 12 to 14 volts .
Use this same method at the 2 wires coming out of the alternator with the engine running (Keep the cords clear) Push the probesw into the connector on each side. If car won't run remove both and take to your parts store for Free testing..
Sounds more like a short or serge to me.
Hope this helps. Best I can do with the info you gave. Mike
