What do I need to fix? Here are the details: 99 monte carlo, 3.1L V6, engine light NOT on. Vehicle starts and idles fine. While driving, when coming to a stop my interior lights dim like it is losing power, they stay dim until I accelerate again. After accelerating it takes the vehicle about 5 seconds and then I hear a squealing noise, which I assume is my belt or a pully, and the vehicle regains the power. My interior lights come back to full power, my car seems to be accelerating better, and all is well. Until I hit the next stop sign. This has been happening since two days ago, and more recently (as of this morning on my way to work) my car even loses power, (interior lights dim) while driving 60mph. Then after 5-10 seconds, I hear the squealing noise again and it regains power. I have a hunch it could be my alternater finally going out but I want to be sure its not something more serious. Please help! Thank You!
have the same problem?
