I'm getting crazy cabin fever and dying for the weather to get warmer!
I'm also missing the vr4 really bad, I might have to pick another one up this summer. Not sure yet. I did however, picked up a really nice completely stock 98' black GSX to play with. It'll be a nice DD this spring and summer.
Anyone ever run into your interior lights, radio and climate, dimming when you apply the brakes?
Your car is going to need to draw more power when you brake (tail-light, abs, ect.), so some power draw would be expected, but I'm not sure how bad it is for you.
1. Check if you have bad ground (Loose battery cables possibly?)
2. Check your battery output (Should be putting out 12 volts.)
3. Is your alternator getting old (check the alternator output, should be about 13.5-14 volts).
4. Try cleaning your battery terminals.
^This. or something drawing excessive amperage when you hit the brakes.
