The car is taking too much power espec when you are flooring it. the rpms are shooting up taking more power away from electronics

That doesn't make sence.. At a higher RPM, the alternator is spinning faster, generating MORE electricity..

O.P. I have no idea what your problem is sorry.

It did it in my truck, I was told by ford (haha yeah i know ford) that it was because the car is trying to put out as much power and the alternator can't keep up with it. Sorry that did sound confusing too In my head it makes sense haha

hmm, just go to autozone and get em to check out ur alternator then. or check for some kind of recall on ur vehicle maybe? could just be something wrong from factory. idk if the batteries our cars came with are worth two shits, so maybe thats it?
