Hello. Thanks for the reply. It was the alternator, it was less then 6 months old. and it didn't cost me anything to get it fixed.

Great! Yep, never presume that just because something was repaired recently, that you can eliminate that part from your diagnosis.

Wow, tough read on that post.
Even though you say the alternator is fine, I'll bet its the alternator. If its putting out less than around 13??? volts, its not enough. If its putting out too many volts it can fry the batery as well.
I had the samething happen with My 2001 outback. Break light came on first. Then after many miles of driving the other lights appeared, then finally the car quit running. New alternator and battery and life was good again.
