When i turn on my directional blinkers on my mitsubishi 3000gt SL my battery gauge jumps. Why is this?
When i turn on the blinkers the battery gauge jumps up, and down. Sometimes the car shuts off during shifting to reverse. I bought a new battery already. I replaced the engine. I changed the transmission (automatic). Is this a serious problem, or is it just a bad wiring problem? Please help me. this is very important to me.

That is not unusual if the gauge is only moving a little bit. When the lights come on the voltage drops because they draw a lot of current. If it is moving a lot your voltage regulator could be bad sometimes these are in the alternator. This may not have anything to do with the car stalling in reverse that sounds like another problem.
