Default Unusual Observation

If anyone knows of a thread that pertains to what I'm asking please let me know.

First off I've owned my 1995 Bonneville SE now for 1 year and have had assorted problems. I've had very few in the past months. I've had to clean and fix both Ground Bus' located under the door side trimming due to a grounding problem. Well ever since the repair I've had no "stalling" problems. But what I have noticed is that when I'm driving my car, and sit at a stoplight for a few minutes, the Volt Gauge will slowly go from about 14.3v down to about 13.3-13.5v. It also has this condition when the air outside is warm. I noticed that when I apply the brakes the needle moves, and returns back whenever I release the brakes. It also does this when I use the turn signals. Any one have a clue what could cause this to happen?

I know what the problem is...

When the battery is fully charged..it doesn't require much and lower rpms generate less power.

Meaning. This is totally normal. Smile and consider your problem fixed.
