While driving, the check gauges, service engine and theft system light will come on. Also at the same time temp gauge, speedometer and tach quit working. (All going backwards to zero, not jumping ahead)
If I turn off anything drawing electrical, (heater blower, radio, lights ect.) The gauges will immediately start working again. I can turn things back on and the gauges will continue working for a while but will eventually fail. Turning things off makes them work again.
sometimes braking for a stop causes the failure but that is erratic. It happens many times during regular driving and doesn't always happen when braking.
both turn signal lights seem to have a dim flash at the moment of the failure.
The theft system light and service engine light stay on through all this but do reset when the engine is turned off. They are ok again until the first incident while driving.
have the same problem?
