What would help would be an articulate question. Does "lose power" mean a loss of voltage/current, or a loss of engine power (horsepower/torque)?

1986 300zx computer where do i find it i was told it wasmy computer my car won't charge or run the battery gage goes from 14 to 12 then drops to nothin?

Check the charging system first. With the car running use a multimeter to see output of the alternator at the battery. Should be 13.5 + volts if the battery is not at 100% charge. If the guage is right and the voltage drops off check to be sure you have power to the back of the alternator. It's possible you may have a alternator problem or if it's externally regulated(I think it might be) a voltage regulator problem.

Can be a defective cell in the battery, or it has shorted out. Can also be a defective alternator not providing enough power to keep the battery charged. Can also be a drain on the battery such as a light staying on. dome light, courtesy light, trunk light under hood light, etc. If the battery is over 4 years old or has been run dead more than once, replace it.

Why does your 1986 jeep Cherokee v6 go dead just put new alternator on?

It could be any number of things and you give very little information. A quick way to check would be to put a volt meter on the battery with the car off it should show near 12.6 volts (anything about 12.2v is ok). Start the car and check the voltage it should be around 13.5v, if the same as with the vehicle off check the alternator to battery wire and that the alternator is 12volts. If the power doesn't change when you turn the car off it is probably the alternator. I do think you need to give more info cause a car going dead could be any number of things. I recommend you go to the nearest automotive store and getting your battery and alternator tested by them to make absolutely sure they are the problem.
