As im driving around last night, all of my accesories headlights/radio/int. lights all started to dim, then died. And when im driving it wouldnt go into overdrive.My car is an 85 monte carlo ss. What i figured was the battery because when we hooked cables to my battery/moms battery all the accesories started to go back up and not dim, but then again it could be the altinator....any help would be appreciated....

Something similar happened to my car, the headlights and stuff started to dim, etc...........it was my alternator. Bring your car down to Pep Boys or Auto Zone and they can test it for you.
