It's the overvolt relay, 95% sure. Same thing with my car and I bought the overvolt relay and it cured the problem. It is very common problem. If I am not mistaken, your car should have one. I am doubting myself because your car is an 85, but this is a very common problem. Someone correct me if I am wrong. You can get a new overvolt protection relay for about $50 here at partsshop.
