I have no idea what is wrong with my car. I will be driving along happily, car running great, good power, I might be singing, possibly some Journey, and then BAM, the battery light comes on in my cluster, and I lose all power. It doesn't die, and it idles fine, it just loses its balls completely (0-60= 10+ seconds).
Then the light will go away, and power returns to normal. So I write it off as a weird fluke, then maybe I downshift and increase throttle pressure to change lanes, or to turn around a corner, and BAM, light comes back on, and power goes away.
I can hear my turbo spooling away as normal, and the DV still makes a pleasant chirp when I let off of the throttle, but it feels as though the wastegate is wide open.
What the hell is wrong with my car? It only happens when the battery light is on. I'm baffled. Go!
