I have an 89 and the other day while my wife was on her way to work she said the dash light got really bright and then the car just stopped running. She sat for a minute and then she tried and the car restarted and she drove to work just fine. I picked the car up and drove it home and watched the voltage meter all the way and it ran between 12 volts at idle with the air and everything running to 13.8 at cruising speed. One other note of intrest is that about three weeks ago while I was driving I stopped at a rest stop and when I returned the car would not start. It actually would not even crank and yet I had headlights, interior lights and everything seemed to work fine. I disconnected the battery and reconnected with no success. I then put the key in the door and unlocked the door and the car started right up. It was raining extreemly hard that day but I am not sure that had anything to do with it. I am getting ready to make a long journey to Charlotte and would like to make sure that I have no problems. Does anyone have any suggestions?
