The gauges going crazy is a pretty normal indicator of a bad battery.

Thanks, ***** ***** us that the alternator is most charging sufficiently so it goes back to the battery being the likely culprit here.

Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.

it's unfortunately very common for a battery with a poor amperage draw or bad cell even to test good and leave people wondering what they missed. Your symptoms though are classic of bad battery.
