I have a 2008 Saturn Vue , in summer of 2018 the vehicle started to have flickering lights, ac turn off and on etc and was becoming hard to turn on. Took only a day for it to shut down while driving. I pulled to the side and it never came back on. We realized the alternator ate up the battery since we couldnt jump it. Took it to pepboys since they could replace the alternator quick.
So new batt and alternator. Yet ever since, I will accelerate and my battery light will come on , the dash lights flicker and headlights as well. The more i change in speed specifically accelerate or even go up hill, the more the car seems to loose charge? Everything flickers . But once I sustain a steady speed it does not, and eventually lights stop flickering.
I have taken it back to pepboys a couple times they said they could never find the problem ( once the cars stopped and parked for a few minutes the battery light goes away like nothing happened) and that its a wire issue and they can’t fix that. Also everytime we check charge on batt and alt , its pushing out -perfect everytime.
What can it be ? Ive already spent $1000 for the new batt alternator and labor.
