          Welcome, Nick!

          Sorting out a few problems on a new ride is nothing too out of the ordinary. Just pick away at it, one issue at a time. Like Steve pointed out, you'll find that much of this has been addressed by others, so the search will definitely be the place to start. If (when) you get stumped, don't hesitate to ask. We'll do our best, and there's a lot of knowledge here.

          It sounds like you'll want to go over the charging system first. These cars like good alternators, and a good, big battery. Double-checking the battery cables, and chassis ground straps are probably the next step.

          That snap-on MT2500 is a terrific tool for these cars. I have one myself, compliments of a good friend here on this forum. It's served me well.
