Here is my problem, I drive at night from my parents house to my house 24 miles half way home my gauges my lights begin to flicker dim whatever. I tap the brake and lights dim alot and sometimes my radio loses power and my mirror compass resets, tonight when I taped my brakes and later when I turned on the high beams my ABS light came on. Couple days ago on my way to work in the morning I lost all electrical power for less than a second my speedometer and tach went down and I belive engine cut out but it was less then a second so I'm not sure if the engine died or not. Sorry for the long write up but I'm loosing patience with my Subaru. Would this be an alternator problem and if not time for a new car.
