Default Alternator Question

Okay so I have a question as to wether this is normal. When I am driving at night, I'm sure it happens in the daytime just have no way of telling as much because the lights are not on, and I have the stero running when ever I turn on the rear defrost or the fron defrost or both for that matter my power seems to dip unless I am driving. When this happens like at a stop light and I am idleing you can see the dash dim, the outside headlights dim quite a bit to. Now my fathers new Ford Minivan with a ton of electrical featuers including heated seats won't dim so I found this kind a of odd. Maybe someone could shed some light on the matter and if anyone thinks this is a little odd how should I go about getting it checked. I already talked to the dealer and he thought that much of a power drain was normal. My car is a 2003 WRX still under warranty and no modifications. Could be paranoid but I just wanted to get someones opinion other than the dealers. Thanks

OK buy Nates beans


Clean your battery terminals and/or put a good battery in your car. The 'grounding mod'(search) may help too.
