I am also having alternator and battery issues. My headlights always dim in and out and now twice my gauges will all drop as if my car is off and when I shift gears my car will shut off and not let me restart it. When this happened two months ago we replaced my battery and alternator and it did it again today. I have read a lot of post and it seems like I need to get a new harness for my alternator and or check my ground wires. The battery cables are brand new and from ford. Does any one else have a manual with this issue? Any help will be greatly appreciated, this is my only car and I work and go to school full time so I need it to run again ASAP.
