Intermittent Loss of Power
I did a search before I posted and nothing really helped.
I have a 96 Accord LX, auto with about 265,000 miles on the odometer. I've recently replaced the battery, alternator, plugs, wires, rotor, cap so we can probably rule those things out.
I was on the highway going about 70mph when my radio cut out and my car seem to lose power for a split second. I noticed my voltage guage was floating between 12-14v and my dash lights were pulsating. I think I was running on alternator power at that time. I made it to my destination and turned my car off and tried to restart.. The car was completely dead. no interior light, no power door locks, absolutely no power!
I pop the hood and check the battery and alterntor connections. All good and tight.
I get back in the car and it starts up fine.
On my way home I notice the voltage gauge started bouncing around again. As I'm driving, my car loses power for a split second again. My headlight went black as well as everything else but power immediately came back.
I've done a little research but still have questions.
Would a defective coil or ignitor cause this type of symptoms? I've never had to replace it. With 265K miles, it may be about that time.
I appreciate any suggestions you guys may have. Thank you in advance.

if anyone had recently worked on the fuse panel under the hood it could also be the positive lead loose and bouncing up and down intermittently.....long shot but worth a check
