OK, 2000 Linclon Ls V8, wife and I were driving down the road when we noticed the dash lights and the headlights were dimming. managed to get it to the side of the road before everything, dash, radio, headlights, everything died. Car was still running, but bearly. Friend came by and gave me a jump and it ran fine all the way to my inlaws house, about 15 miles away. When we left there, the car did the same thing again. Whats up with that, is it the computer going haywire?
