First stop would be a place like Auto Zone mentioned above for a electrical system check out then provided they say your alt and batt are good, then the dealer, sorry.
Thanks for the input. Iím planning on taking my car over to Autozone or somewhere of the sort this wednesday. If they canít find anything wrong with the alternator iíll take your advice and go over to the dealership, crossing my fingers though!
