    Have a 2002 v-6 2.7 and this morning the battery light flickered all
    the way, 23 miles 1/2 hour all the way to work, on the way home
    flickered just 3-4 times. Car started just fine but this is the 2nd
    post describing this problem... any ideas anyone?

    Got into work this morning and the light was still flickering, called
    the dealer and made an appointment for Wed, my day off. Coming home
    tonight about half way home the lite came on and stayed on. Its all
    highway driving and when I got off the interstate and at an idle the
    light went off and as I left from the traffic light the light came on
    the lightes all dim and no kidding it sounds like I'm in a helicopter!
    Parked it in the driveway pointing out just in case. Oh crap. Whatever
    it is it's affecting all the electrical now.
    Thanks for the replies.
    I'll let you all know what they find but in the meantime... any

    I recommend you either charge the battery and take it to a close by dealer
    or have it towed. Your car is telling you it's not charging the battery
    anymore. If you try to drive it any further, it will probably stop on you
    as you've already just about drained all the energy out of the battery.
