BAD ALTERNATOR?

2000 Ferrari Modena

Electrical problem
2000 Ferrari Modena V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 20000 miles

Hi,
every time I push my gas pedal five lights on my instrument panel turn on at the same time. These lights are ABS + ASR + Brake + Transmision + battery blinking. Also when this happens my speed radar reads " hi volt", my radio turns off and a strange noise is coming from the battery area which is located at the foot rest on the passenger seat.

I did the battery test ant it was ok. I did the test with the meter with the engine running and the read was 14.4 V which is acceptable.
Do my alternator has something to do with this?

Sounds like it. Have you had the meter on it when everything is lit up with voltage warnings? What about if you bring the rpms up a little?
