Ok then you may have a power connection problem ,first check all the wiring connection on the battery alternator and all fuse and relays as you are having a intermittent brake in the alternator wiring system or the alternator is starting to fail on you ,have all this checked

Mostly when this happens you will have a alternator problem the regulator is starting to malfunction
