I have a 2003 hyundai sonata. While driving home, the battery light came on, my dashboard clock faded, then the radio stopped working, then all dashboard lights dimmed, airbag light came on, then my car started stalling and 2 miles later it stopped (died). When I tried to restart it, the lights flickered, but it wouldn't turn over. I retried 15 minutes later and it started, but then everything flickered and then died within 2 minutes. Is it the battery, alternator or something else? Thanks for your help.
