1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo elec. problems

by deathangel00432 / January 12, 2009 4:01 AM PST

My jeep will start fine, but while it's driving, the radio, gauges and sometimes headlights will turn off for a brief second and then turn back on. At times the engine will die as well but not every time. I replaced the alternator a couple months ago, new battery terminal and cables and it all started working normally...but it started doing this again morning and I am stumped. I called up the auto parts store and he said it might be a relay problem...any ideas?
