but the addition of the oddly acting dash lights throws lots of suspicion to the alternator as well.

an alternator will go bad, and the car will slowly die as the battery goes dead. but if the car DIES ALL AT ONCE i would say timing belts
take off the distributor cap, and see if the rotor turns when you crank th motor. if its not turning, you have a broken belt

Oh MilesFox by the way....they said that the lights kind of flickered and then it just kind of puttered out??? Don't know if that might give you another thought as to what i could look for when i do get to check it out...but just a thought would help....Thanks

can you get it to start with a jump?

The car starts up after you let it sit for a while..
Definitely not a timing belt issue.
Do the dash lights stay on and flicker when the car is running?.. that would make me lean toward the alt..
When my ignition module in my disty died the lights would flash a little just before it stalled, soI am still leaning toward the ingnition module/coil idea.
