So I figured out my issue with my 95 GT is electrical somewhere in that charging loop if I'm saying that right what is the most common issue with this loop from the alternator to the battery to the starter to the dash that I should check first alternator is fine it turns over fine it was running all right hit a bump and shut off and hasn't started since it's getting fuel I'm just kind of at a loss I'm kind of thinking towards a ground that's loose or something in the back of my dash My voltage drops when I turn the heat on or the defrost or the headlights when I hit the gas it jumps back up sounds like an alternator but the alternator tested fine oil pressure gauge stays about halfway when the car is turned off until I turn it back on then it drops back down and seems to work fine maybe loose ground behind the dash behind the gauge cluster I don't know just if someone can give me some opinions and be gratefully appreciated thank you

How/who checked the alternator?
Was the alternator load tested? (All the accessories on and the headlights too)
Oh, and ad proper punctuation to your posts, one long sentence is hard to decipher.

Crank up the car, use a digital volt meter on the battery, should read high 13 low 14 volts, turn on headlights, ac with fan on high, should still read high to mid 13 volts. You want like 13.5 volts at idle with everything turned on. Then you are likely good.

You keep talking about a 'ground issue'
Don't stab in the dark.
Test the alternator on the car, then you move to the next step.

Then check all connections, not just the grounds. If it hit a bump then everything died sounds similar to a Fox ignition switch issue. But it’s hard to distance diagnose from your first post.

Thank you I figured it out it was a combination of my grounds and ignition control module. Alternator battery starter solenoid all that was fine thanks for the advice and help. My baby's back up and running strong.
