1971 Monte Carlo

Asked by Jul 02, 2018 at 09:39 AM about the 1971 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Was taking my car to a local car show the other
day, on the way I noticed that while pressing the
brake the radio would cut out then back on, made it
almost to the show and it just died, no power to
anything no lights dome light nothing just dead.
Some really cool police officers stopped to help to
no avail ended up pushing it into a parking lot, what
a way to show up at a car show! Anyway after
sitting awhile everything came back on, I drove it
home and while driving it still cut the radio out if
pressing the brake. Got it in garage and same thing
completely dead no power to anything. Been sitting
all night and still nothing, checked battery it's
showing 12 plus amps and is at 98 percent charge
so it's fine, also noticed the Alternator was pretty
hot after parking it. All wires to fuse box seem
solid but getting no power to any fuses. This is my
issue where do I go from here? What could be the
problem? It's a 350 stock motor.
