2003 Toyota Camry XLE
If anyone knows anything about cars I could sure use your input. I have a 2003 Toyota Camry XLE with 160,00 miles on it--and runs fine by the way. About a month ago, I was driving Todds Road at night and I was flipping my brights on and my radio cuts out. A car passed so I turned them off and turned them on again and my car "stalls" or "died" and then came right back on and my engine kicked back in to my speed and rpm level. So, we figured out it was just a bad alternator and replaced it along with my battery. Now, we have gone through 3 alternators and it still cuts out with the lights. Taken it to Green's Toyota, AutoZone, Advanced Autoparts, etc. and they all said it is the alternator. Plus, I just got my third and newsest one on Wednesday. Today, it drove fine and this evening I hit the unlock button on my key fob and my car went nuts! Lights and alarm go off and my instrument panel was moving the needles up and down on the rpm meter, speed, gas, etc. Usually when it does that it is the battery going dead (which my battery is only a month old now). Is there a ground wire lose? Fuse blown? Bad connection from battery to alternator? Do I need to get another battery because of drainage? If you can help I would greatly appreciate it!
