    Default info screen,headlights,and spanner on car problem,,any ideas ?

    hello again,
    a couple of days ago i noticed the spanner on the car caution indicator came on.
    then noticed the info screen, headlights, warning screen, even interior lamp has started to fluctuate (if thats the word) go dim and bright again every half a sec.
    after driving the car for about 5 min it goes away but if driving the car from cold in the dark the headlights look like i am driving a police car,,its that bad !!
    any ideas ? thought it may be the alternator or some sort of voltage regulator ??????
    very confusing ??

    sounds like your Alternator or battery m8 but make sure all the earths are ok and the power leads/plugs are tight the 1s on the batt plus the back ov the alt

    i thought it maybe alternator or battery but thought it best to ask first as it could have been a common problem.
