Strange coach behavior.....

Driving down this road in rural Wyoming when suddenly all the interior and dash lights start blinking rapidly, strange repetitive musical sounds from the speakers, and the engine starts to lose power. Anyone else had this problem? There's something weird about this area.

Loved that movie! First time I rented the VCR tape, way back when, I sat up all night and watched it over and over and over.
