a friend of mine was driving a couple nites ago and her car died just as she got to her final destination. she said that it stumbled just a bit, then the radio started flashing and then the engine died. it's got enough power to turn the starter and the lights and what not, so i'm thinking it's not a battery or alternator issue (alternator is brand new). i'm not sure what it would be because of the radio being related, somehow. could it be a distributor issue? timing belt? again, i don't see a relationship to the radio. she says when she cranks the starter, the radio flashes. i'm not too familiar w/ gas engines. any ideas? early 90's toyota camry or tercel - can't remember.
