Re: car hesitation while driving
Without knowing more about your problem it's hard to say what the problem is. However the fact that the radio went off and the battery light is coming on would indicate an electrical failure.
Have you checked the alternator? Also, your alternator may be fine, but the leads that connect it to the battery can become corroded and cause a poor connection. I experienced this exact issue on a 2002 Chevy Grand Vitara, the lead connections on the back of the alternator just had to be cleaned.

Check the following: cable terminals for tightness, alternator output with the engine running ~14.2V, battery voltage with the engine stopped,~12.7. Also check for good ground connection of the battery and engine block.
have the alternator bench rested as it is not charging correctly
check drive belt condition and tension
the problem is that everything is getting power from the battery without any charge going back in.
There is normally a 20Amp fuse that protects this unit. Check your fuse box for blown fuses. WARNING: If you remove power from the battery - then you may have to return to a seller to re-enable passwords to drive radios/cassettes etc; unless you have authentic manuals.
I get this when it loses the radio signal. I have to unlug it and remove/replace the batteries to reset the stations. You might also try hitting the weather/snooze button, listen to the quality of the reception and then move the antenna around to try and find good reception. These radios are picky about antenna reception location.
