The truck was beginning to lose power as it was being driven and then after the turn signal was turned on the truck shut off. We then jumped off the truck and the truck died. Any time the truck was turned on the truck dies eventually.

Same problem with my 88. I changed the battery and the cables and clamps. Good alt belt. I think the alt is almost two years old. Could be the prob but the last two times the engine and brake like both came on when the alt was bad. Is it really cold there? It's we have negative numbers right now and I'm wondering if that has anything to do with it.

Turn Key and Loses Power


Hello,

When a vehicle goes completely dead if a large drain is placed on the electrical system, such as starting it, the problem usually lies either at the battery connections or where the cables connect to the vehicle. Slamming the door repeatedly is probably just jarring the loose connection back and forth. Start with this, usually the fix to a big problem is smaller than you think.

Turn signals not functioning properly


Please check the bulbs. These issues can happen if your bulb is burned out. Crazy if you have a bad bulb on both sides but still need to rule them out.

My RPMs are jumping all over the place causing my car to shake when i drive it. Can some one help me out?


first of all, pull off distributor cap and check for wear on inside and also inside cap. The tachometer is driven by the signal from the ICM (Ignition Control Module) located within the distributor. The signal is on the blue wire and usually when the ICM begins to go bad it can cause your tach to go crazy. If the ICM is ok the wiring needs to be looked at from distributor to tach guage. good day!

take a look at the dash ground wire located next to the right of ebrake release handle. if the bole holding the ground wire is loose, which was quite common it will cause all kinds of feed back problems, like described in the comments section to your question.

All of these are signs of a dying battery, because it's not recharged by the alternator.
Test the alternator this way: jump the battery from a running car and start your engine; rev the engine to about 2500 rpm and disconnect the jumpers; test the voltage - on a working alternator it should read 14 to 14.5 volts; if it shows 12 volts or less then the alternator is totally dead.

My Chevy S10 will shut down, starts back up minutes later


Check if your wires are on TIGHTLY on the battery, if one loses a touch, your car will shut off. If you go over a tiny bump, or turn to one side or another, they could disconnect, causing your car to lose a + or a - cable connection. Which would very well make your car shut off. Also, check for any corrosion on the battery terminals. Good luck.

Transmission problem ? Dash gauges


Ignition switch and wire harness for ignition switch. My husband did both. I was losing dash gauges intermittently and overdrive. Now that is fixed and six months later looks like I need the multi function switch(turn signal, wipers, cruise lever). My husband has to take that all apart again for this problem. My turn signal blinker noise won't shut off. Driving me crazy.
