Not much to say about it, the rear light warning and the the charge battery light come on and as a irev the engine they fade away, but as the rmp's drop, the fade back on, anone have any idea what could be causing this? I was thinking maybe the battery or alternator. any help would be appreciated!

your alernator is probably starting to go the charge battery light is on cause its not getting enough juice to run the car from the alt, stop in at auto zone and have it checked out

heres how to check if your alternator is not doign the job. start the car. turn everything you can think of on. radio, fan on high, rear defrost, all your lights, you 4 ways, your amps and subs if you got them. pretty much anything you can think off that uses juice.

Then get a volt meter and put on the battery terminals. Even with that load on the alternator it should be reading around 13-14 volts.
anything lower then that, it means you alternator is geting weak.
