    help i think

    Recently picked up my 03 wrx.. driving to work this morning I noticed under full boost the break and battery lights flash just for a second. I am able to duplicate it repeatedly. Stopped after work and had the alternator and battery tested both passed with flying colors. Also checked the break fluid resivor which was full.

    I am new here but learned a long time ago to search first that being sais i found only 1 thread and after reading it wasn't the same issue.

    Sorry for the spelling and punctipuation not easy on my phone to type this out

    I had a "spare" alternator that was on its last legs installed for a short time.. it worked fine, except when accelerating hard the brake and battery lights would flash. I would bet on your alternator. Maybe it works okay at idle, but under load it isn't providing sufficient voltage.
