Clicking noise and Battery and Brake lights flashing on and off at idle.
I have a 93 SE-R and I just replaced the alternator about two weeks ago. everything was fine until this past Friday evening. I was driving and when I would come to stop lights the brake and battery lights would flicker and I heard a clicking noise where the fuse box inside the car is, kind of like a relay opening and closing rapidly. I haven't really looked at it much but I know the belt is tight enough as I have checked that and there are no blown fuses or loose connections that I see.
Friday evening on my way home it basically just cut out and turned off, I left it on the side of the road since it was in my townhouse development and I could walk to get it in the morning providing it started. I tried restarting it Friday evening after it cut off and it didn't work at all sounded like the battery was dead or something. When I went back the next morning it was all good started and ran just fine. Do you think it is a bad battery? I haven't taken it to get the battery and alternator tested yet but I plan to after this week since I'll be on travel all week for work.
Just trying to get some ideas as to what could be wrong, its throwing me for a loop.
