Question about 1999 Chevrolet Tracker
Had alternator checked and is fine, like new. Just put in new battery. Checked all fuses; under hood and under dash. All in tack with no blown fuses. Often AC blower flunctuates when power does and any lights that do work: cruse control light and radio clock, dim and brighten constantly. Can actually feel power surges in power of car (slight jerky motion). Please help me decide where to look next. Head lights come on automatically with a light sensor on top of passenger side dash, when sun goes down.
Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits ? Checking B+ voltage an grounds ? Voltage drop testing ? Do you know what a electrical wiring diagram is ? How to use one to pin point testing spots in a electrical circuit ! A couple simple test's using a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter is probably all it would take to find the problem . High resistance in a power or ground circuit is probably all it is .

Testimonial: "good advice on where to start and things to look for"
If the fault would have been in the relays or fuses then all the lights would have been out. Your problem is in the wiring - the wire that powers them is disconnected.
You will gonna have to take out the instrument panel to access the dash harness and check the connectors on it.

Those are all symptom,s of a low system voltage condition, so you had better get a 2nd opinion on the Alternator, I strongly suggest you seek out a dealer service dept for help.
