    Unhappy Electrics click off while driving

    Hi I'm new to this site, just bought a 56 reg vectra exclusive 1.8 petrol.

    i love the car but today when driving a couple of miles to work the electrics clicked off for a split second and back on again 6 times during the journey. the dash lights and radio all flicked off as if the electrical power cut off.

    i drove from Liverpool to Chester and back after work and had no problem and have had no problem before this for the few days i've had the car. just wondered if anyone else has had this problem with their car.

    i'm not too good with cars but that was the first thing i checked, but they look ok poves. the engine management light is not coming on so i'm thinking maybe it's some sort of short from a bare wire or bad earth or something. just hope its nothing to hard to find and fix.

    To my knowledge ( might be wrong) they either work or don't...but think difficult they cause this type of small intermittent glitches.
