My car has recently been showing a battery sign lit up and will die when I slow down or stop at a stop sign. I can easily restart it again and go on my way though. What is happening? Thanks

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Tiffany, By your description I suggest that you go to your local auto parts store who can perform an alternator and battery life test for you. You typically can find one that will perform these tests for you for free. You may be have a failing component in your charging system.

Laurie Sarno, Co-Owner at Super Girls Auto Hello Tiffany- sounds like you may have a bad IAC valve - go & have the charging system checked just to be on the safe side- hope this helps- thanks Super Girls Auto.
