Why does the car stall when pushing brake pedal or using turn signal. Clicking noise is also heard at the same time the battery and oil light come on.
Do you
have the same problem?

Battery and Alternator running voltage looks good-Now for the stalling investigate the vacuum hose/check valve/brake booster if its leaking a leak here will affect idle speed also check the PCV and EGR valves. Also check the turn signal flasher.

Idle speed is 700 rpms.
Dash lights go dead, seems like you turn off key momentarily. Dad is a electrician and he seems to think electrical more than vacuum

This is the catch-for electrical problem involving the exterior lights-brake and turn-Since he's electrician should be able to troubleshoot it-

The problem was that the ground wire on the engine block was loose. The mechanic cant explain how it got loose but after getting the screw back to its original position the problem is gone.
