For sometime now my car has been randomly shutting off while running. Seems that power to the ignition fails. I have a kill switch in line because the car didn't use to shut off with the key off. If I turn the switch off and the back on the car comes right back on. Also the gas gauge and temperature gauge comes on and shuts back off or doesn't come on at all for days. I was only shutting off a few times when it was cold and the it would stop doing it. Yesterday it started missing very bad and would not run. Today while testing the wiring it seems to be running fine but is still shutting off occasionally but after the miss firing yesterday the ignition light stays on when the car is running. It did not do that before only when key is in the on position and not running. The light is also flickering. I have also noticed power the vacuum advance comes on and off and have a similar problem with several other circuits including brake lights. It seems to me as the hot wires are grounding somewhere but I so far have not found a cause. Any suggestions?
have the same problem?
