Loss of acceleration

1997 Country Coach Intrigue, 325 Cummins, 6 speed Allison Tran
When my headlights are on I loose acceleration completely, either from a dead stop or on a steep incline. When I turn off the headlights, I get instant acceleration. I can immediately turn the headlights back on and the problem does not return for 15 to 30 minutes and then will occur again. The problem does not occur when the headlights are not on.

Loss of acceleration

Hi Seinbender, most of the time goffy problems like this is caused by a bad ground or you may be getting a feedback from the headlights that bleeds into the acceleration system. I assume the accelerator system is electronic controled. Have you had any work done on the coach and noticed this problem after? Have you added any new accessories? Let us know what you find. Good luck
