^^ 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?

Sounds like you have a Gremlin.

Check the battery cable that goes to the underhood fuse box. Could be shorted. Could also be a bad ground.
