Plethora of electrical problems

2006 Chevrolet Colorado Work Truck

While it usually runs fairly well. My particular truck has a plethora of electrical issues. My front blinkers only work sometimes and if I turn the steering wheel too fast, the whole truck shuts off and I have to restart it. (Recently got a new battery, did not help anything) I have tried to take it to a mechanic but the thing they plug into it says nothing is wrong.

The Camry is more comfortable but requires more maintenance.

2006 Chevrolet Colorado Work Truck

Our truck has over 250,000 miles on it but we keep up on the upkeep. The oil is changed every 3000 miles and the spark plugs are checked often as well as the transmission fluid and oil. We change the oil filter every time we change the oil. We can take a 6 hour trip and only use 1/2 tank of gas.
