I have a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder, 6 cyl, with manual transmission and 140,000 miles on it. It rides fine below 60mph. From 60-70 mph the battery and brake warning indicators begin to intermittently flicker in unison. When they do, the headlights and dash lights dim, but there are no other indications of problems. Above about 75 mph, the two indicator lights stay on and all lights (dash and headlights) get very dim, then the engine starts to shudder as if it has no electrical power and wants to stall. It all gets better when I slow down below 60.
I tried revving the engine, mashing the clutch and bringing the rpms well above where they would be when driving 75 mph, but nothing unusual happens. Its only when I'm in gear and driving that this problem occurs. What's wrong with my Pathfinder?
