Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer.com
This sound like a Alternator issue.
When the alternator stops charging properly the car will run off the battery.
As the battery gets weaker, control system will shut down so the remaining power can keep the car running.
Such as the radio and AC and then the meter.
and so on.
I would suggest you have the Alternator load tested to verify, so this doesn't leave you stuck.
If you have any more questions on this, please feel free to ask. Thanks Jay!
Thank you. This is what a local mechanic suggested but I wanted to verify that it makes sense. I'll have him check the alternator load. IF it is diagnosed as an alternator problem will it need to be replaced? How much would this cost?
I always recommend to use Genuine Parts,
So your looking around almost 300 for the alternator if you get it from the dealer, you can get it cheaper after market but they don't last.
As for labor it's around 2 to 3 hours labor
OK thanks. Hopefully this will do the trick.
