sleepyboy I'd replace the power cables, my focus did that before I would loose all the gauges and the light and sometimes the car would still run or it would shut off. I went through a couple of alternators before finally replacing the cables and haven't had a problem since.

worfz When you said you lost all the lights in your first post, which lights did you mean? Were you driving with headlights on and the headlights died at the same time the gas gauge and speedo went to zero? And at that point the car was still running normally otherwise until you stopped and put it in park?

ruger took it in to the shop that works on my cars and on the way it died again. waited about 10 mins and started up and continued on my way. guy who runs the shop can't find any problems. altrenator is fine , battery is fine , battery cables fine nothing loose . so im puzzled as to why this keeps happening

and drove it home. the battery is brand new. Same thing happened twice before except the car didn't die. anyone have any ideas why this happened ? before yesterday it was 3 weeks before it happened.

Thanks
Get the battery and alternator checked out. All the power and electrical dying has me leaning towards that. I'm guessing the new battery is the only thing keeping that car started. The auto stores or AAA should be able to test both for you.
