What year is your car? Check the wires that plug in to your alt. If there'* only 2, you may be able to install a sense wire and add about a volt. There'* a write up in the tech info area.

Also check yoru belt to make sure it'* tight and not worn.

Check your belt. Your year is good for dropping voltage at idle. I had the same problem. That'* just how they are. But, there is a fix an dit'* only about $10 and a half hour of work. Like I said, there'* a write up callind installing a alt sense wire. All your doing is adding another wire to the alt and connecting it to a +12v. That'* it. Only thing you need is a new plug, some wire, and a soldering iron. Check it out, well worth the time.
