It could be a belt slipping. It could be something in the voltage regulation circuitry. It could be a broken wire or bad connection. No telling how long your alternator is going to last. Check out your wiring and belt and start saving for a replacement when needed.

i have checked everything i think that by buying an AC Delco battery instead of an original Motorcraft battery might be the reason, does having another battrey even with the same volt a reason that the car dont charge as it should?

The label on the battery does nothing. There are three or four battery manufacturers and they label them to suit the business that sell them. Some are better than others and you can tell by the length of the warranty. - - As long as the voltage matches and the cold cranking amps are sufficient, any battery will work fine.

i have taken the car to the garage i hope they find what is causing this thing as since yesterday this thing kept coming and staying longer (check charging system + batt sign) i think that its reaching its end, upon first inspection by the garage they said that the wiring looks fine and the batt ok i hope i dont pay too much ;)

after i have replaced the alternator and the cable and the battery. a year and one month passed and now i have the same thing again :(
