    Hi all. new to the forum and was just wondering if anyone could give me some idea of what could be causing this problem. ive checked all of the obvious things i.e, battery, battery connections, earths(engine, etc) alternator connections charge rate, drive belt. ive read some of the other threads about similar problems most of which point to the alternator but i couldnt find any about this problem that actually say what was done to fix the problem 100%. any help would be greatly received.

    Does this happen when it's idling, or when you're driving at some speed, or both.
