All power shut down WHILE DRIVING the other night. Alternator and its belt OK. Battery and/or voltage regulator could be problem??? Anybody ever had this happen to them -- not just a dead battery, obviously, but complete power failure while driving. If I had been on an LA freeway going 80-90 mph, I don't think I'd be writing this right now. Power steering and brakes seized/failed. Thanks. -- Chris Jolly (Los Angeles)

Check the connector next to the right head light from...

the inside of the engine bay. I had a complete shut down of the engine electrical system when this plug was disturbed. Most likely it was disconnected when I performed body work on the right front fender. You may need to clean and re-seat the connector.

Was your battery drained or the engine just stopped running?...
