Been having a very strange problem with the 4000Q (84). Coming home
from a 6 hour roadtrip, every once in a while the car would hiccup.
Total loss of power, then comes back quickly and recovers.
-Engine completely dies for a fraction of a second
-Tach dies when this happens. Never long enough for it to hit zero
though, but it does drop.
-Radar detector (plugged into cig lighter) resets
I checked cables from battery to ground and to alt/starter etc.
Ive narrowed it down to either load reduction relay/wiring, ignition
switch going flakey, UFO's etc...
I hate to think the car isnt reliable for a long trip!!! If anyone has
seen this, Id appreciate some input, thanks!
