Electrical system on vehicle goes down and than comes back on. Everything on the dash goes out and comes back on or we have to start the car again.

With electrical issues, I usually pick one component that has a problem, then check the wiring diagram for that component. If that circuit is fuse protected, so much the better, then you check fuse circuit for voltage. Some fuse circuits are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on. If the fuse circuit gets ignition feed, meaning it goes hot with the key on, have to check feed to and from ignition switch.
Sometimes intermittent problems can be hard to track. Have to do testing when problem is ongoing.

Recently bought a 99 CR-V. Had it tuned up and fixed almost everything. Runs very smoothly. One remaining problem is engine going dead while driving or just won't start after parking. Dash lights flicker...

Old post.
same here, there is only 2 paths (besides wild $$$ guessing)
1: yes, do scan it, if the tool goes dead (comms down) the ECU lost 12vdc power. (the CEL goes dead to , just key on, if no power to ECU/PCM.
2: or diagnose the no start.

what is flicker?, the dash lights come on key on to tell you power is ok and all things running them thinks they are happy,
some cars have immobilzers, and it does flicker at IMMO mode.
blocking you.
be specific on lights. what lights to what.
the operators guide is free, and shows each light.

AC is blowing cold air, but it is coming out of the defrost and not the front vents. Why are the front vents not working?

Check over on the passenger side under the hood by the fire wall, there will be some elec. connection, just below that there will be a small vacum line that should go into your fire wall, check that it has vacum, it should also have a one way valve, small round looking some time that get clog, needs to have vacum that is what power the blend door's.

My alternator guage is pegging to the right (18) (needle moves slowly)and then the check engine light goes on while I'm driving and then everything goes back to normal after five minutes.

Get your alternator checked. A local mechanic can do this. Also some auto parts stores will do it as well but you may need to have it off the vehicle.
I have had the battery terminals corrode and disrupt the operation. Check your terminals, if they are bad, clean them. If it is time change out your battery.

My first thought would be that there is a short in the system dealing with the guage itself.

Idiot Lights come on and guages go dead

not sure about the on, off problem.
as for the lights/gauges, my car also did this. once we replaced the water pump, they started working. we don't know why, but that seemed to fix them.
