Question type: Maintenance & Repair

While im driving my dash cuts off and jumps back
on all gages usually go down but car is still started
lately a fewtimes this has happened the car would
not accelarate and i would have to cut it off and
start it back up. Im trying to figure out what the
problem could be.

1 Answer


i have the same car. most of my weird electrical problems solved themselves when I changed out the battery cables with new ones. oem cables on amazon aren't very expensive. I had the problem with acceleration also, what finally fixed it was changing the gas pedal. you should check your codes before changing any components
