I recently bought this car, had an engine scan before buying, came up clear.
Shortly after my car started losing rpms in idle and when I would turn my blinker on, all my gaugues would flash with it.
About a week into it, my car completely lost power and died. Had to get a jump start.
The next day she started fine! Took it to my favorite shop and they couldnt figure out what was wrong after 3 hours of searching, the obvious electrical problems were there, but no idea and no codes coming up.
So, took the car back to the dealer. They said it had to be the battery, they replaced it free of charge. She ran PERFECT for 2 days.
Now shes starting to the blinking gauges again, and when I turn off my AIR, she loses some RPM, but than regains it.
Im good with cars, and Im scratchin my head on this one. I also have a feeling that the same thing is about to happen all over again. Because the battery was apparently not the issue.
Any ideas? Im so stressed and frustrated over this.
P.S. There is also a new alternator, so its not that either.
