Check your alternator - this is more than likely the cause. advanced auto or oreily's should be able to check this for free.

if that isn't the issue - you probably have a bad ground in your electrical system. could be expensive.

    now, the shifting issue may stem from a compression problem with the TCC or torque clutch converter. which is notoriously bad is you have the 4t60 or 4t65 model transmissions. These cars have some of the best engines ever made but not so good on the tranny. I have the same problem with my TCC - it's too expensive to fix. I have installed a tranny cooler designed for RVs to keep the tranny running cool and it seems to make a difference.

Fuel flow problem after driving continuous for distances longer than 150 km - engine power loss and engine cuts out ??

Why do you think this is a fuel flow issue? Have you connected a pressure test gauge and seen that the pressure drops just as the issue occurs?

I need year--make--model?
Make sure battery has a full charge, and battery connections all good? Charging system is operating properly. Check applicable fuses for instrument cluster, not only check fuse, check voltage at fuse circuit when problem is ongoing, check voltage and ground. Any applicable trouble codes?

Guages when crazy. Now won't even try to start.

You likely have it repaired by now but it sounds like a classic case of oxidized battery or cable connection (sometimes mis-diagnosed as bad battery but cured with new (clean) battery)
