Hi Dan:

sounds like you have a power issue here. My Guess would be a bad ignition switch. a good way to tets it is this when the car is hot and acting up use a digital volr ohm meter and check what the battery volatgae is when it's running then check the fuses in the fuse box if you far less then that at the battery you have a high resistance issue and it's most likley the ignition switch. that car has 2 fuse boxes 1 under the boox and one on the rt. side of the dash. good luck ;-)
