Question about 2001 Buick Regal
Regal dashboard lights start flashing off and on and needles go back and forth, warning bell dings. If I get it started, it will start doing it and shut down while driving. Braking is sporadic then. The battery was 5+ years old so I replaced it and immediately car started right up and worked fine. Turned off and restarted to check and started fine. Put tester on battery and came up with 14.7. That was last night. This morning started fine. This afternoon, back to flashing lights and dinging. Tester on battery again over 14 and put negative on battery negative and positive on alternator gave reading over 12. I have read that ignition switch could cause some of these problems or alternator. Any ideas?
