I would still like an answer. The car is still not fixed they dont no what the problem is. The car will start when cold but after 2 miles the battery light comes on and the speedo and rev counter stop working then they start to jump up and down like there trying to work. Then when i turn the car off i cant get it started again. The altenator has been changed and the crank shaft censor also but its still doing it. The mechanic seems to be second guessing but it keeps costing me money and its not fixing the problem.
