    Vehicle runs fine. If i stop and kill the engine, when i try to start
    it, all power goes out. I wait a bit and the power will return, but
    when I try to start it, all power goes out. Nothing is on. Battery is
    2 years old. I am thinking could be the battery or alternator. I'll
    have to push or pull to get it checked, but I wanted some opinions
    Thanks for any help.

    Check for corrosion on the battery post.

    I checked and cleaned battery posts. When the power returns it is full
    power. strong lights.

    Found the problem! It was the bolt going into the negative side of the
    battery post. Thanks.
