Thanks for your reply.
Yes, everything goes off and then back on, and the dash lights go back to steady then dim, with the gauges fluctuating, and the clicking, etc, but a few times the there was no dimming and clicking.
The other thing was until I cleaned the terminals there was some contact paste on the positive side and after it got wet it was puffing white smoke from the terminal when turning the key to start. The battery terminals were cleaned with a wire brush and I made sure they were tightened. I assume that was just the heat burning away the coolant, etc?
I am going to have the battery tested tomorrow to make sure it is still good, and check the charge.
I was just concerned that something else may have gotten damaged that would cause that.
