Thank you. This sounds very much like an alternator issue; specifically, it is not producing enough output voltage or amperage (or both) to maintain the electrical load of the engine electrical and other electrical systems. I would recommend you have the alternator output (voltage and amperage) checked to see if they are within specifications. This would be 14.4 volts DC and at least 50 amps.

I already got the information I needed. You took too long to answer and as a matter of fact, the alternator was changed recently. So thank you, ***** ***** am not happy with your service. Good bye.
