92 ACCORD what causes the gauges to quit working when the brake pedal is depressed, another problem is turning on the headlights and the engine dies any answer's ?


Hi Christopher:
I'd be checking to make sure that the grounds are nice and clean and working properly. When you step on the brake pedal you are activating a switch that sends power to the brake lights. The brake lights share bulbs with the signals and emergency flashers, so it is also possible that a dead short in any of those components could "steal" the power from the ignition.
At this point, it's a trouble shoot game for you to figure out what is working, and what is not.
That's part of the fun. Enjoy.

Fuel gauge drops to empty, fuel light comes on, car dies and wont restart.


My first guess would be something happened to the wiring harness to the gas tank. The sending unit for the gauge and the pump are on different circuits, but they both use the same ground.

The truck stays on as long as i'm driving but whn i come to a stop or slow down it dies and i have to restart it. I thought maybe the alternator, would that be right? Also the lights start on the dash fade...


My truck is manual and is idling rough at low rpms, it kinda surges and rpm starts to drop like between 500 and 900 rpm as well.

I have trouble starting it and stalls on me.

I have changed the alternator, starter, battery, battery cables, rotor, distributor cap, spark plug wires, spark plugs.


As for the dash light going out, mine does that too but on the left side (gas gauge side), I just usually apply a firm tap on the left side of the black part of the panel and it turns on.

96 Dodge Caravan ABS Battery lights stays on, radio dies, gauges drop, then restores Advice needed? Hi, I'm a bit new, so I hope you will forgive my lack of knowledge here. I have a 96 Dodge Caravan Sport...


Sounds like the BCM (body Control Module), although it could be a bad battery or alternator. Since the van keeps running ok, I'd tend towards the BCM.

Since you lose speedo and such, it's a bit dangerous to let it go too long. ;>

You can also buy a cheap dollar store light that plugs into your cigarette lighter. Make sure you can see it, but it doesn't blind you. If the light stays at about the same brightness, or gets a _little_ brighter when the gremlins attack, it's probably NOT the battery or alternator. yes, it cheesy and cheap, but I _like_ cheap troubleshooting.
