I really appreciate your response, let me bring you up to date. The battery was fine, suspected the alternator, so I took it out and took it to the parts store. They tested it, said it was good. I explained what had happened and that the speedometer was dead. The sales person suggested that it might be the speed sensor. I found it and disconnected and then re-charged the battery. Sure enough everything was fine, (except the speedometer.) I bought the speed sensor, and everything has been fine for two weeks. Then this past Thursday the Check Gauges light came on and the battery charge gauge was pegged to the right at 19 volts. When I came to a stop, it went back to the normal 14. It did this again Friday morning, but then was fine Friday evening. I did not drive it at all on Saturday. Sunday morning it would not start. There is a low electrical hum when the key is turned, the dash lights are very dim, but it does beep to tell you that the door is open. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
