Re: HELP!! - Does this sound like a battery problem??
Could be to do with a faulty earth connection.
Not sure which one though. If you'r car is starting OK, then it's unlikely to be the battery. Check the voltage on the battery with the engine disconnected, and then with the engine running. Post findings here.
On the dribble problem, there is a one-way valve in the pipe running from the tank, and this can get blocked with crud.
If it's limescale from hard water, a dose of vinegar in the water bottle will resolve. Run it through and wash down the car.
