Your alt just keeps the battery charged at the same level. So your battery could be loosing some power if you often leave your lights on run the battery dead, and then just boost it.

I dont think its the alternator.....IF the battery were that dead the head lights would dim with each flash and it would be hard to turn over. Is it slow to flash with the hazzards on? if not then change out your flasher.

When the flasher'* are on, everything is fine. I've had to jump my car recently, and I didn't replace the battery. So, maybe I'll go get a new one tomorrow.

You dont have to get a new one, just get a battery charger on it over night or somthing.
