^^ so yeah.
Car has died twice in the last 3 weeks.
I hit a deer about 1 month ago.
but only within the last weeks have i noticed the car running wierd.

Only at idle does the dash lights flicker, the speakers make popping noises, and occasionally when accelerating from 0 to about 25 the car will totally die.
But it always starts right back up.
Always starts the first time.

I replaced the alternator about 10k ago. and battery about 15k ago.

Also note worthy is the fact that as soon as i turn the car on. the fans come on. The radiator fans...

What's going on?

collision from the deer could have jarred some stuff loose. sounds like electrical definately. check the power cables coming off the battery and alternator to make sure they are all connected well. they might be touching but are they connected WELL? also see if the wires are stiff or melted looking. if they are replace them. be sure to check the ground wires on those components as well
