The alternator light flickering, especially at higher rpm's, is a sign the brushes in the alternator are worn. Normally, the whole alternator is replaced. The alternator is located in a very unhandy place to work on, so its not a pleasant job for a do-it-yourselfer. I had the Mercury dealer replace mine with a rebuilt alternator a year ago, and the cost ran around $500. If the problem is just the alternator, there should be no need to replace the battery, unless it happens to be bad also.

Why does my 1999 mystique will crank and run but runs rough


Sounds like your idle valve has stopped working . Does it run fine when warmed Up? If so I would clean the throttle body and remove the idle valve and clean it. After reinstalling it have someone turn the key on while you tap the idle valve lightly with a screw driver Handel. Then see if it will idle when started. If it does then you need a new one.

Flickering battery light


The alternator is old and tired, having a hard time keeping up with the task of running all the elecrtricals AND charging the battery. If you put a voltmeter on it with the engine running, it would show the alternator's output at the low end of acceptable performance. Have it tested to be sure.

Battery's are draining on a 2008 gmc duramax


Check all the interior lights in the truck, look at the visors which are the single biggest cayuse of the battery drain, look at night. Also Have the batteries tested, a shorted cell will draw them down as well. Never overlook the obvious.
