it has happened to me before. Either you can wait for computer to readjust to the throttle body or clean it. When I find a link on how to clean the throttle body, i'll post it here.

You must do a charging test to verify the alternator output. The output for your car loaded, should be around 13.9v and 14.2v. This seems to be a problem of the rectifier diodes and the voltage regulator, The rotor must be check also, along with the stator. A simple test. turn the lights on and try to blow the horn if it fails the culprit is the alternator. The battery just keeps the juice for needed times. So do a voltage test with a multimeter if less than 13v take it to the shop.
