aight i did some searching but havnt came to a decent conclusion on whats goin on and how to fix it.

while driving the trip/odo flickers. (at any rpm not just at idle.)
a few times after coming to a stop everything electrical resets. (cluster lights up like i just started the car. radio reboots. radar goes through its turn on.)
but the car doesnt stall.

i have 0 gauge every where. i sold my subs bout a month ago. and i have a new batt and a fairly new alt. and im using led tails.

thanks for any help in advanced

Your dash fuse and other fuses might have corrosion on the pins. Happen to my car before.
