    Hey folks!
    I need help!
    My dash lights randomly turn off when driving and the car dies. Have swapped different batteries, doesn't change a thing. Car still cranks fine, will randomly start back up and go fine again for a few days then will sometimes flicker off then back on and the sometimes just off... car doesn't die immediately, engine is still moving... but as I come to a stop engine is off.
    Radio lights etc are all still fine.
    My guess is a faulty relay.... but which one?!

    have you checked the engine fuse at the engine bay? I think it's a 20amp fuse

    If it blows the car just turns off, I have 3 spare fuse boxes so no shortage of fuses or relays
    Just want to know which one to check!
