Voltage drop while driving
Aerostar has a voltage regulator on the left fender. This regulator controls the voltage. this could be your issue. Also check ground connections. Good luck :-)
A 97 will have the voltage regulator on the alternator itself, but the idea is right, also check the main harness at the alternator they are known to burn out.
