04 Mustang V6
Two weeks ago the battery dash light came on after pumping gas.
I was right by O'Rielly so I had it tested and the battery and alternator didn't pass or fail "inconclusive". (Not much help which is usually what I get from those places)
When I left the parking lot the battery dash light went out.
I cleaned the battery connection a little.
Fast-forward to yesterday battery light came back on. Today started car and tried to use wipers and they barely came on. The battery light is now off but the SES light came on and is still on. Wipers now work, no issues.
Thinking back about a month ago my radio just shut off one day while I was driving. Didn't work for a few hours but now has been working fine ever since.
Battery is only about 18 months old.
Possibly bad ground wire? Short? The car doesn't die but possible the alternator is on its way out?
Appreciate any help
