FORD ESCORT BATTERY PROBLEM

1994 Ford Escort • 120,000 miles

A few days ago, turned on heat and battery light came on and flashed until I turned off heat. Today, car starts revving while driving (20--25mph and car revved to slightly higher than 3). It has also been stalling when you come to a stop. Car is an automatic, passed state inspection recently, had tune-up and new battery a year ago. What might this be? I'm a single mom and would appreciate the assistance.

Check for vacuum leaks and check the idle air control valve (IAC)
