Exactly... My 04 was doing all kinds of crazy shit. Voltmeter was still showing decent power, and the idiot light wasn't on, but stereo would work, then not work, no dash lights, but heat and headlights, no gauges, then they'd work... Finally I pulled the alternator and took it into a rebuilders, he pulled it apart while I was there and the brushes were worn clean through the commutator... Rebuilt it for under $150...

Might be something to check anyway...

I wasn't trying to be an Ass earlier, just sounded like the car from Stephen Kings "Christine"...
