2006 Dodge Caravan Two Wheel Drive Automatic 62K miles
Sporadic and sometimes constant electrical interruption causes:
gauges, dash lights and headlights to shimmer and flicker wildly.
Gauges will drop to nothing.
Radio will turn off and back on.
A/C (compressor only) will recycle.
Some kind of bell/chime will also sound when this occurs.
Sometimes the flickering/shimmering is constant and low frequency. Then at times everything will go crazy and wild. When that occurs, engine has even faltered and died (at times) requiring restart.
Accelerating RPM sometimes causes a brief stoppage of problem. Other times that doesn't help at all.
3 different shops and 2 different dealerships say they can't figure out what the problem is. Cleaned ground wire from battery to ground but that didn't help. No codes are produced that indicate a problem.
Seems to be voltage issue of some sort but I'm not an electrician. No consistent pattern has been recognized.
