Ditto on the alternator,voltage regulater as the regulater attaches in the alternator. When it was mentioned to me I thought what the ####??, how could that be it. When I checked the voltage output all of a sudden it was vacillating way out of whack at over 16 and all those things started to happen, as yours does. Let sit awhile, restart, Ok for a short time then, Wallah it starts to get nutty. Tried the CD replacement first as that seemed the most logical, but the problem was more toward the beginning of the voltage food chain.
