Double check all battery connections. Loose or dirty connections can cause this sort of issue.

they are in good condition just like a hour ago the car died on and i went back it started up and as i was coming home the lights quit and all the gauges .....but thank you for the help im just baffled

with mine it started with the radio cutting out randomly and the gauges flickering back and forth. I've taken it in and no one knows why it does it or how to fix it.
