All my dashboard gauges are flickering on and off and going haywire. Low power start and sometimes need a jump. In the last yr I've changed the alternator and battery 3 times. All brand new and never refurbished. I don't know what else to do. Any help would be appreciated.

It sounds like a bad ground and/or corrosion on connectors. I used to do avionics checks on helicopters. The only solution is to look at every connection, clean, and reconnect. I don't have a wiring diagram, but it is basically a shotgun tour of the car, starting with the main grounds to engine and frame.

Make sure that nut #4 and #8 are tight. I usually loosen them first and then snug them to knock any corrosion loose. Corrosion can be hidden underneath the nut.
Remove and clean the battery posts with a wire brush tool. Battery terminals can look great from the outside, but corrosion can hide between the posts and terminals.
Disconnect and reconnect #11, #12, #13 and #14 to refresh contacts.
