    Car Fault...Any Help Much Appreciated

    i dont know if i have posted this in the right section but i have got a problem with my car and wondered if anyone knew what it was...
    i was driving on the motorway yesterday and as i went to overtake someone the power cut out for a second and a light come up of a car and a spanner, it only lit up for a second and then would go off when the power kicked back in? it only seemed to do it when i put my foot down, it happened a few times and one time the light of the car and spanner stayed on and i lost power so i had to turn the ignition on and off while rolling and then the light went off and regained power? just before it i had a high pitch squeel coming from one of the back brakes (squeel would stop if i put my foot on the brakes) but went after 2 mins of driving on the motorway, i dont know if this had anything to do with it but i thought id add it anyway... this never happened before i got a full service at vauxhall done so i dont know if they have done something to it?

    sorry about the essay....any help much appreciated...

    big thanks to drew for coming round and trying to help me out, great guy...unfortunately the diagnostic machine did not bring up any faults so has anyone else got a theory what it could be?
