Had a similar problem on a '88 Suburu. Turned out to be a bad alternator. Have it checked out.

I agree. Likely a bad alternator causing things to go haywire.

Check my post "The Basics" for how to do a charging system check. See what the output is and then you'll know if the alternator is gone or not.

Don't think I would go out and buy an alternator just yet.

Is there any fuel in the carburetor bowl? Can you pump the throttle and see it spray?

Can you keep the car running with carb spray?
