Engine ground problem car randomly loses power and battery wont stay charged even though new alternator and new battery and a used honda certified engine were just installed 2 weeks prior (81k miles on engine) While driving the SRS light turns on and then the dash lights go dim with the car still running ive checked all fuses and engine is grounded properly? Should i just trade this car in since the parts + labor + payments cost more than a new cars payments would be?
