Please help

Hi I'm having some problems with the electric system in my 96 Disco, and I would like to know if you guys are familiar with this problem, and how to fix it, a few weeks ago the engine started to work a little bit rough and now if I have the radio on and turn the lights on the radio will shut off for a sec, and then on again, or when the turn signals are on and I hit the brakes, they will kinda miss the rythm, the other day I turned on the lights and the velocimeter kinda glitched for a fraction of a second? what could this problem be? any ideas?. Thanks guys
-Marco

possibly a bad ground? you may want to check out: http://www.atlanticbritish.com/techtips_main.html

scroll down to Discovery and read under the electrical ground issues.

and with "velocimeter" do you mean the tach or speedometer? if the tach is acting funny, you may want to check the alternator connections (or the alternator itself).

it has gotten worse

It was getting progressively worse, but now it died on me, I read about this before, but it was before the change, so please help, this time as I was driving, came to a red light and the truck just stalled, so I just started it again and from then if I'm not on the gas it will stall, any ideas...please, Im crossing my fingers here...thanks
