voltage meter

Asked by Jul 20, 2012 at 12:42 PM about the 1998 Mercury Grand Marquis

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Without warning while driving my in dash voltage meter will spike for 2-3 minutes. This knocks out some of the dash lights, the headlights and the ac blower. When the meter goes back to normal everything comes back on. Is there an easy inexpensive way to discover the problem and fix it?
