alternator going bad or electircal problem?

since last week my car has been acting weird. from time to time the cd player will shut off and turn back on, when this happens the headlights also turn off and bak on with it. and sometime the whole dash light will blink with it but not all the time. what could the problem be?

Re: alternator going bad or electircal problem?

probably not the alternator. sounds like you have a bad main ground, battery terminals are loose or something like that. if the alt died, the car would still run off the battery until the battery dies, so if your car starts fine after driving it, then both should be good. check all of your wires! the main engine grounds tend to fray and go bad sometimes (mine did way back when)
