I have a 99 Buick Century Custom. Over a month ago at night we noticed while having the cruise turned on, the headlights would shut off and on by themselves. About a week ago the Service Engine, Anti Lock, and Trac Off lights would all come on and stay on even after restarting the car. Just the other day the Anti Locks would activate while we were breaking and almost to a full stop then shut off after we had stopped, and this was on normal roads.
Over a year ago we noticed that while the AC was turned on, sitting still or going under 15 MPH, the car would kinda whine/groan. After seeing something on TV, I started to put 2 and 2 together and wondered if our alternator could be going bad.
What do you think? We plan to have it looked at but it might be a few days and I know this will just eat at me for some time. Thank you for your help!
