your tail light may be out or somehow not drawing enough/too much current from the system. Also, keep an eye on whether or not the "charge" light comes on, even if it's dim because that signals a dying alt

if it only when you have your lights on or when you press your brake pedal it would be a light out if its not in sync with those things i would have to say the alt too.

You say it "sometimes" comes on and stays on???

I would guess that you have a loose wire/connection on one of your rear lamps.

If it was the alt, or a dead bulb, it would be on basically all the time.

Otherwise, please elaborate on the "sometimes" thing... how often, what circumstances etc.
