I noticed recently when I drive at night and step on the gas my headlights get super bright as soon as i'm idling the headlights are really dim. Is my alternator dying or do i need a new battery at all

Sounds to me like you have alternator problems. Do you have Autozone or Advance up there?? If so then you can take it by there and they'll test both your alternator and battery for free. I think an alternator runs around $120 bucks down here. Hope this helped.


Take care,

Hope this helped.
