Car cutting out and battery light came on



  R35 GTR
It stalled a few times tonight, and first time i started it up tonight, after sitting since saturday. First time it just couldnt turn the engine over, later on tonight the battery light came on as it stalled at some lights.

If I kept the revs up it was fine.

Battery voltage is 13.07

recently had a new alternator, aux belt and tensioner fitted.
 
  Polo + Micra
somewhere between 13.8-14.4v to keep the battery charged

13.07v is about the same as i get on my yellow top optima

i was watching tv for half hour with engine off, think that may have done it.
You know that you should have called me to come and jump you or for me to put a job into the system for the AA. Adam to the rescue! LOL

cheers mate.:eek: I was ok though, rebecca wanted to drive around as she thought sitting in car for 10 minutes to charge battery was boring.

I said sitting in the middle of nowhere waiting for AA is slightly more boring.lol.
