1999 Ford Taurus Front Wheel Drive Automatic 145000 miles
The problem I have with my car is that I will be driving down the road listening to my music at any volume and i'll hit the brake or turn signal and the radio will shut off then turn back on. It does it more when the radio is louder but it has happened when nothing is even playing at all. The dome lights and dash lights also flicker quite a bit. I have all stock speakers with nothing special except the head unit itself is an aftermarket Kenwood. Its not the head unit because I have had 2 of the same model head units in there already and it did the same thing on both of them. I checked the voltage I got when I turned on the radio and hit the brake or turn signal and it seemed to drop very low before coming back up to normal voltage. So to put it simply it seems like the battery isnt recharging fast enough but I havn't tried a new battery yet. I have checked the ground and tje alternator and they were fine. Is it more likley a short or the battery and how can I tell?
have the same problem?
