Hey guys the problem I am having with the car is this. The car when started idols high for a second then idols too low and will stall. The car will stall sometimes when it comes to a stop. The thing is though that it is also being accompanies by weird electrical problems. The power locks only work when the car is on now. The radio does not work at all, and the interior lights aren't working. So I was thinking maybe the voltage regulator but not entirely sure. If it was iac would I be having thouse electrical problems? Thanks

Iv got the same car same problem. I brought it to a shop while on vacation they told me bad battery ran good untill I got home. Didnt turn out to be the problem. Then I put a junkyard altinater which made the car run worse. So I went out and got a brand new one ran good for about a month. So I got a book on engines to see what would it be and I came to think as you said its the voltage reagular. Witch can be adjusted. When the regulator is bad or out of tune it will ware out the altinator which in the end gives you a bad battery to. I havent done anything with the regulator yet ill keep you posted on what the problem is and how to fix it. If you find anything out please email me at dontwanton@gmail. Com thanks nick
