The easiest check is your battery voltage. I'm having the same issue with my '99. In my readings from the forum, the electronics on these cars don't work properly with less than 12.5 volts. And you cannot go by the volt guage on the instrument cluster. I think that is reading alternator charging volts. I'm sure that someone with more knowledge will have ideas to check this problem further.
