I have an 88 celebrity, it sat for a little over a year before I got it and we changed all the plugs and wires and oil and gas in it. Well i've had it for about 2 years and for the last few weeks it hasn't been running right. When I go to work in the morning it's dakr so I use my headlights and it seems to put a strain on the car my blinker goes really slow and it has a problem accelorating. This morning it was really bad when the blinker would flash on it would stay on for about 5-7 seconds then flash off. When I went to leave work it would not start all it did was click. So I jumped it off and let it run for about 10 minutes and when I got in it to go the radio was acting funny and when I pushed the brake in everything almost died so I backed out made it about 5 feet, pushed the brakes to shift gears and it died so my car is sitting at work. Please help

The alternator is bad or going bad, you should also make sure the wires or fuses to the alternator are in good shape, if the battery is a few years old you should have it load checked also, most places will check these for free while still in the car. I have also had bad or loose drive belts cause this problem also.
