BATTERY LIGHT FLICKERS

2005 Scion xB • 72,000 miles

My car starts sometimes but then sometimes doesnt start. When driving in all gears my battery light flickers. I just installed a new alternator to fix the starting problem. The battery light problem just occoured with installation of the new alternator. I tested my batter and its fine. I also get a whining noise when I turn on the fan weather its heat or air its still whines. It also tries to stall more when the air is on or when the radio is turned up.

OK cables are all connected tight and it doesn't seem to be them cuz I can jingle them and everything is fine so I don't think any wires are bad cuz nothing happens so I'm gonna take the alternator off and take it back and swap out for another and see if it was just that one tomorrow
