Hey Guys need your help.

we have a 99 Grand AM SE, (2.4 l 4 cyl)

last night my stepson and I were driving home from work and all "hell" let loose electrically speaking.

applied brakes, the radio shut down, driving along the ABS light came on,
shut off car, no "juice", no lights, no radio. Car finally started the "security" light came on and stayed on, as well as parking brake light. radio cut out a couple of times while driving. ?????????????????????????????????

we replaced the battery and alternator 12-15 months ago. could it be the alternator acting up ?

Take it to a garage..Worst case is electrical shorts. Best case but expensive anyways a computer chip..GL

That happened to me, except I couldn't get started again. Ended up with a new alternator IIRC.
