COMPUTER LIGHTS ON AND CAR SHUT DOWN

1994 Opel Vectra • 350,000 miles

The problem started when my car suddenly shut down when slowing down, I changed the fuel pump and everything went good, later on I've had problem with electricity as the battery went empty after leaving the car without move for 2 days, I changed the battery with new batteries 2 times but still If I the battery is going empty when not starting the car for 1 day, I checked the Dinamo and it is working very good, also I let the electrician check whether there is electricity shortage but he said nothing is wrong and no shortage.
Today my problem is : the light of computer goes on and the car straggle (like as there is a dirt in the fuel)and the RPM goes below 500 then suddenly shut down.
I tried to press all door widowns bottons together and I noticed that the electricity went low then then RPM less than 500 then car shut down.

The problem is nobody have the electrical divice which check the computer near me and I feel all repair poeple are guessing and waste my money for nothing
Please please help

It sounds like your alternator has failed. You need another shop to verify that it is working.

Check for vacuum leaks for the low idle. How long has it been since you changed the plugs?

If he is a mechanic, and I am sure he is, explain it in the terms I explained to you and he should understand where I am coming from. These are common terms in the world of car repair. Let me know if he does not understand and what I need to clarify.

Mr. Emad,
I am facing the same problem with my Opel Vectra 1994, I did change the fuel pump and some other parts, the mechanics are using the guess games. One of my friends suggested to check the Vacuum valves or to check the electricity cycle from the beginning to the end. I wish If you had any luck fixing your car let me know what was the problem and I"ll be so appreciated.
