Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla
It sounds like you have low voltage at idle.
This could be the alternator, voltage regulator, or even the battery. It could also be as simple as connections, but not likely. It could even be a loose or slipping alternator belt, but I think you would have heard some squeeling noise if that were the problem
testing the charging voltage to the battery is pretty simple, and some car parts places will do it for you. I know some autozones will do this for you.
Start with getting your charging voltage tested. Alternator/voltage regulator is the most likely, but a battery that is drawing too much charge current can do this as well.
