Battery light?

Its not so much of a problem but every now and then my battery light will stay on once the engine has started and will flicker on and of for a while (10 secs) then will go back off again,

Is this a sign that my battery is on its way out?

I know that if i have my fan on at full power and then turn my indicator on you can hear that the indicator steals power from the fan as it flicks on and off

Ive never had a problem starting the car but im guessing this could be a early sign the battery is dying?

Either battery or alternator. Guess which is easiest to change....!

Have you measured the voltage across the battery, and the voltage across it when it's charging?

Have you topped up your power steering fluid recently and maybe spilt a little bit?
