Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok so I have a 2001 Oldsmobile alero.
Tuesday I was driving and all of the dash
lights and gauges went out and the radio
stopped working, I hit a bump and
everything came back on. Went home
parked the car tried to start it a few hours
later but all it would do is start and shut
back off, after a few times worked fine. A
little later went back out and it started just
fine but nothing on the dash worked. The
next day the same problem but later on that
day it stopped working all together, the car
starts but shuts back off after a few
seconds. What could the problem be?

there is obviously a loose connection in the wiring harness. exactly where is something that has to be tracked down. could be as simple as a corroded fuse or a connector where it goes through firewall No simle way to guess

I have the same car and when i had it looked at under the hood there was a melted connector. I haven't got it fixed yet, but the dealership said that's what the problem was. I'm going to find an old broke down car and take the connector out of it and have it replaced.
