Re: randomly messes up

Oddly enough I saw these types of issues when the Alt was going bad..
Might be worth checking that out..

Re: randomly messes up

I'd go by an Autozone or something and have them do a diagnostic check on it.

Re: randomly messes up

Well you know what they say.. When you have issues with these things it ususally ends up costing you a battery, alt, and starter..

Re: randomly messes up

Check your fuses!!!! when any electrical component fails always check your fuses under the hood and under the dashboard it'll be cheaper then replacing parts that work i had the same problem wit the window, steroa, and sound system, turns out it was the fuses

Re: randomly messes up

Also for your car shaking, what type of shaking is it? I had the same problem but when my car was at a stop turns out it was the transmission mount that was wearing
