vs commodore berlina
Hello. Well proud owner of 96 C'dore Berlina with just 40000ks on it . MINT cond!!. The car has obsoleted all self taught mechanical knowledge. (upgraded from HJ that had for 19 years). Car has twice shown all warning lights but let me drive home on battery. But then won't start. Can jump-start from booster, and no lights come on on dashboard, runs perfect. Then it happened again today, with 3 kids in the rain!. have checked battery all good, checked charge circuit ; all good. WHY is this happening: hoping fo a simple answer!!??

Check the main lead to the alternator where it connects at the alt. This can fracture at this point and cause intermittent charge and sometimes total meltdown if it breaks off completely and starts earthing out. Check by removing the engine cover.
Good Luck.
