VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE BATTERY PROBLEM

2001 Volkswagen Beetle • 109,000 miles

First my abs light comes on the brake light comes on then car loses power and dies as a matter if fact I'm on the side of the road now. This all started when battery light flashed dimmly a couple weeks ago. Had bat and alt checked both fine I think I'm in some kind of fail safe. But not sure. Help

Battery has died and you need 12 volts for all to work. Either the battery has internally shorted out or the alternator has failed. Check voltage when running. It should be 14 to 14.5 volts
