all the time's i've had battery problem's as long as it was running it was fine just not great, until i stopped it then nothing. whenever it discharged and died while driving it was the ALT that was the problem.

you can try a new battery will be better in the long run, tho on what i have experienced i'm gonna put my bet on the ALT.

I see what you mean, but afew days ago when we have the engine running on a now dead battery the alt was reading 14.xx volts so quite confused at the moment, someone else said that a bad battery can cause the electrics to play up and cause all the electrics to be sluggish, which is what I have.

the regulator in the alternator was also mentioned, i would put a fresh battery in it and check/clean the earth point's. when driving keep a eye on the dash volt meter for sudden dipping ie, when you indicate/ hit the brake etc... it should twitch maybe a little but not to much.
