Alternator has failed. Have it checked to verify

Most of those can be fixed right on the engine, depending on which engine you have, by removing the rear cover, then replacing the brush assembly. You can verify that is the cause first by measuring the voltages on the two small wires on the back of it with the engine running. Those brushes are the only thing inside the alternator itself that will cause intermittent operation.
