Engine cuts out and instrument lights flicker when I turn on headlights or flash high beams
While driving at any speed and turn on headlights or flash high beams, my engine will die also causing all gauges and warning lights to come on. Even the tachometer and speedometer dance up and down as though an alien space ship is hovering over me.
A friend suggests this could caused by my alternator has gone bad.
What is your opinion?
Could very well be just a loose/dirty battery connection. Also tighten and clean the negative battery connections going to the frame and motor
Your friend is on the right track. One of mine went out cold turkey after a busy intersection. All lights flashing, engine stutter and then gone.
