My bull has been doing some strange stuff the past couple months. Like today, i was driving to work and my speakers would pop, then my low gas light would blink on the lights on my clock would dim, and my headlights would flicker out, then a second later everything goes back to normal. However through the entire outage my engine is running fine, not a hiccup or anything.

What is it?

Its a 3 month old alternator. I had auto zone and advance auto parts test it and both the battery and alt are fine. I will clean the terminals and see if that helps.
