Electrical cutting in and out.

'93 Towncar, 187k. Came to a stop today and the radio and climate control cut out. Came back on then did so again while driving afew times in a row, After awhile it killed the motor for a split second and came back on. When driving if i tap the brakes or hit the blinker the climate control shuts off and starts again, Check engine light and ABS light come on. The a service air suspension light flickered. Finally i got home, came to a stop and the whole thing died.

Cars getting old but thats no excuse, Where should i start to look? Every connection in the engine compartment is as it should be. Anything common with these panthers?

Re: Electrical cutting in and out.

Getting old is not an excuse, but it is a very good reason, as cars tend to wear out at around 20 years. At that point they begin require extra attention and maintenance.

This is obviously an electrical problem. Start with you battery connections. Are they clean and making good contact? From there, start checking wiring for intermittent shorts and corroded or loose grounds. The air pump hot lead tends to chafe near the left front frame near the pump.
