My Brother's 98 Marquis has stared to experience a power loss when driving
on the highway. The problem occurs every 90 minutes; so he is pulling over
and letting the car cool down. On one occassion he tried to put the 4-way
flashers on when he could not keep the car going 55mph on the interstate and
the 4-way flashers would not come on. He tried them again after the car had
cooled a bit and they worked.
I think the battery in the car is original. The car had sat for 3 weeks in
a garage before this problem occured.
Any ideas or similar experiences? All input is always greatly appreciated
here's some input... teach your brother to type and use newsgroups then let
him borrow your computer and post ALL the information/symptoms.
there has to be more to it.
Those two problems are not usually associated... the flashers would typically
be affected by too low voltage and the car wouldnt run well either.... but it
would not be a continuing problem because after a few time the car just would
refuse to start.
that said .....I had a bad cruise servo kill all engine power on the highway.
It was also heat related. The answer to that was to not use cruise, until i
