Default Om3g4m4n, Detroit- The Home of Rock n Roll

New to the site, looking forward to getting auto help. Late bloomer to being a gear head, but quickly becoming my favorite thing. My '95 Bonnie just broke 100k woot woot. I didn't want the car at first, but now it'* the best car I've ever had. All leather, sweet sounds, nice ride, and it'* got that 3800 Port Tuned Injection that makes it Humm The Biscuit on the freeway. I could get something new, but honestly, I've just really grown attached to this car, LOL. Crazy! Anyway, while I've got everyone'* ear, I stumbled upon this cool site because I was looking for help with an issue i'm having.

When I hit the brakes to put it in R, or D, it tries to stall for a brief second. The antenna starts to go down, and the radio is interupted, and some of the dash lights go on, and some bells/dings, like when you 1st start the car. So it stalls for a brief second, but then keeps going, sometimes it does do a complete stall. This can happen while I'm driving as well, but I have to stress that it happens when I apply the brake. I was thinking that it'* an obvious electrical issue, or possibly something w/ ABS. I can hear a click coming from under the glove compartment box right before this happens sometimes. It'* wierd. I've never heard of this happening at all. Suggestions?

Welcome to the site.

From what I see in your problem, it sounds like a bad ground problem. Check all grounds and clean them, on the block, under the front doors, everything.

Hi Mahlon!

Welcome to the Bonneville Forum! I agree with Dan - sounds like a ground issue. That clicking your hearing is probably a relay opening or closing when you loose the ground.
